VP vows to cooperate with AML
The Vice President for the Sierra Leone Scrap Metal Association, Abubakarr Jalloh aka “General Buba” has vowed to get rid of illegal scrap metal dealers. He made this pronouncement at the Ross Road Police Station last Friday 19 October while assuring his co-operation with the AML and the Sierra Leone Police Force.
He went on to explained that African Minerals Ltd (AML) has brought onboard the association simply because all this while there have been reports of theft cases of illegal scrap metal dealings.
Mr. Abubakarr Jalloh noted with dismay that since the AML kick started its operations there have been several reported cases of scrap metal investigations at the following police stations; Rogbere police station, Port Loko police station, Pepel police station and the Lungi police station respectively.
He pointed out that AML is very cooperative with the Government of Sierra Leone and other organs that are very co-operative towards the promotion of Sierra Leone developmental strides.
He went on to caution all illegal scrap metal dealers to desist from all illegal rails in the business, noting that very soon AML will ensure that all rails that are not useful to them will be sold publicly to the community people.
AML Head of Communication’s Unit Mr. Anthony Navo Jr in his contribution explained that AML has signed a contract of 99 years with the Government of Sierra Leone and also confirmed that the rails are the property of the Sierra Leone Government.
Mr. Anthony Navo Jr advised all those who are actively engaged in the scrap metal business to caution or else they will have themselves to blame. He concluded by revealing that there are recent cases of reported stolen rail metals at the Ross Road Police station, under investigations.
