In Kono two die in Ebola riot
Reports reaching this press say Tuesday 21st October, 2014 was another bloody day in the war torn district of Kono as Adamu Eze, the blue eyed boy of VP Samuel Sam Sumana had caused another untold mayhem for residents of Koidu town.
Reports say Adamu lost his sister last week to Ebola and her corpse was forcefully removed from the medics of Kono and buried against the wish of the district and medical authorities.
This week, Adamu’s mother was reported ill and was reported to have Ebola signs and symptoms. According to information, the medics had wanted to transfer the sick mother to a treatment center when Adamu started threatening the medical personnel’s that his mother is not suffering from Ebola and anyone who attempted to touch his mother would be skinned alive.
All efforts to make Adamu change his position proved futile, in fact according to information he left the scene for the centre of town where he gathered most of his colleague hoodlums and headed for the Koidu Government Hospital. At the hospital, Adamu and his cohorts went on the rampage stabbing and looting innocent citizens. They threatened to burn down the Koidu Gov’t Hospital and the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Cooperation (SLBC) in Kono.
The security forces were called upon, the rioters were dislodged from the hospital premises but continued their mayhem in various parts of town. A curfew was immediately evoked to maintain law and order. During the curfew a Top up Seller named Safea was shot at the main Kainkordu road and died instantly, reports say another youth also lost his life as a result of the riot.
Adamu and some of his street gangs have been arrested, many are said to be hospitalized while the police continue to make more arrests.
