Big split in police

Credible information reaching this press indicates that senior police officers are displeased over the release of recent promotional list.

Police sources say it was unfair of the Inspector General to release a promotional list that bears names of unripe and unqualified officers.

It could be recalled that prior to the release of the promotional memorandum, there had been serialized postponements owing to objections from both the politicians and police officers themselves.

It has reached the table of this press that some of whom are promoted paid thousands of US dollars to the police IG Francis Munu.

Specifically, senior officers who now serve as United Nations peacekeepers in Darfur/Sudan have had field days lavishing bribes to officers assigned to the committee that deals with promotion in the Sierra Leone Police (SLP).

One of Sierra Leone Police’s disappointed senior officers has told the For Di People newspaper that he holds a sensitive position in the police force and since the creation of a legal department he has been the only person as head.

He said he has been receiving salary as a police officer and not a lawyer at all.

Superintendent Mohamed B. Kamara further told FDP newspaper the Inspector General had cajoled him to hold onto the legal department by buying him a Le 20 million jeep with registration AAR 520.

That the IG of police has failed to appreciate his good work, but rather went as far as promoting officers that are serving as peacekeepers in Sudan.

He furthered that he will have no option, but to resign from the police and move to private practice.

Another office who virtually confronted this press for a talk said: “how for goodness sake an overqualified senior police officer could be refused promotion for incompetent police officers who have bribed their way,” he said.

Investigation conducted revealed there is big split within the chain of command in the police.

It is disclosed that the current police head, IG Francis Munu seemed dictatorial in the conduct of his duty.

A group of senior officers viewed attitudes of their IGP as far reaching legacy of British born Keith Biddle – force for good doctrine.

Unconfirmed information states that a total of about 200 senior police officers are on the verge to quit the force due to undeserving and unsuitable conduct of the IG of police.
