Police destroy Le 100M worth of ‘diamba’
The Local Unit Commander of Waterloo Police Division, Superintendent Edmond Issa Conteh Monday 9th May, 2011, supervised the burning of Le100m worth of Diamba (cannabis sativa) amidst stiff police presence.
The drug, it is told, was impounded at respective locations in Waterloo by personnel attached to Waterloo Police Division.
Addressing a segment of pressmen at his Waterloo office, LUC Issa said several attempts to bribe him were made, but failed.
“To me, Sierra Leone comes first,” adding that it was his intention to discourage the selling and smoking of dangerous drugs from among the youths in society.
He said however that an undisclosed number of ghettos have been demolished within Waterloo.
That youths engaged in the sale and smoking of Diamba have had their names on a list of persons frog marched to the court for either smoking or frequenting the place used for smoking the drug.
He furthered that all charged were convicted and made to either pay fines or serve imprisonment for three or more months as the case may be.
LUC Issa noted though that the crime rate in Waterloo has reduced drastically.
The Le100m Diamba was set on fire by the Western Area District Council Chairman, Alhassan Cole, who also extends countless respect for the LUC of Waterloo police for their marvelous performance.
In his path, Chairman Cole said only decent senior police officers dutifully perform the way LUC Issa did.
“From what I have seen, it is a fact that LUC Issa has put the image of the SLP to high esteem,” Chairman Cole said.
The AIG West East, Mr Mustapha Kamara witnessed the burning of the drug.
