He made the statement while commenting on the current crime rate in Masiaka, Lunsar, Lungi, Kambia and Port Loko which comprised of the North/Western Region.

He told the Sierra Leone News Agency in an interview that the police is highly on top of security situation and that people could now go to bed and have a sound sleep without the least fear of the usual torments from thieves. He said this is as a result of some stringent measures carved out under his leadership including the intensification of police patrols especially at night.

The Assistant Inspector General of Police was however quick to outline what he referred to as ‘few challenges‘,  prominent amongst them being the need to improve the moral of his personnel in terms of welfare, which he noted, is a major ingredient in the enhancement of effective service delivery.

F U K Daboh went further to single out the issues of illegal timber logging and what now appears to be the frequent trafficking of cannabis as well as the unscrupulous manner through which some companies were recruiting workers even without a proper profile for such workers.

According to the Crime Officer at the Port Loko Police Station, Assistant Superintendent Michael Laggah, the police is investigating a case of a white pickup van stolen from the China Railway Seventh Group, a construction company contracted to construct the road network in the township of Port Loko.

 He said the Toyota Hilux with registration Number AHU 892 was under the control of one Ahmed Karangbash of Water Street in Port Loko who was recruited as a driver some three months ago.

On Sunday 6th July 2014, Ahmed was assigned to ply between Port Loko and the location of the company’s quarry at Rosint. His disappearance was only noticed after launch when the other driver had resurfaced to continue with the rest of the day’s work.

The Crime Officer said even though the matter has since been reported to the Port Loko Police Station, his team was finding it difficult to track the suspect simply because the company cannot provide the required details of the suspect.

In a separate development, the police in Port Loko is also investigating a case of unlawful possession of dried leaves suspected to be cannabis weighed at 63 Kilos. It involved one Alhajie Sesay who has now been detained to help the police in its investigations.

Alhajie was in a group of traffickers that was intercepted by the Night Patrol Team along the Port Loko / Gberay Junction Highway. The traffickers were four in number and on board two unregistered and unlicensed motor bikes when signaled to a stop by the night patrol team commander, Assistant Superintendent Chester J P Mansaray who is also the Operations Officer.

They quickly abandoned both motor bikes together with all the suspected bundles of cannabis and took to their heels. But it was too late for Alhajie who was immediately rounded up by the police.
