Elections ‘gbos-gbos’ 18 sent to jail
Magistrate Alford Fedawi yesterday slammed sentences on eighteen people reported to have been involved in riotous conduct in an incident that occurred in the southern city of Bo past weekend.
Four of the rioters received an alternative fine of four years imprisonment or Le4 million each and the remaining fourteen who had three count charges were sentenced to eighteen months imprisonment or pay a fine of Le1.5 million each.
It could be recalled that on Sunday 25th unrest ensued in the second capital city of Bo in which irate youths, purported to be members of the main opposition Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) rampaged security personnel who were protecting election materials.
These convicts destroyed police patrol vehicles, inflicted wounds on some police officers and caused damage to properties worth millions of Leones.
They thugs were tried at the Bo Magistrate Court.
