As apprehended dock workers released LUC’s incredibility exposed

It has come to the notice of this press that the five Sierra Leone Dock Workers Union members who were arrested and detained at the Ross Road Police Division on Monday 20th October have been released after spending over 28 hours in police cells without any investigations.

According to our investigations, on the above mentioned date, the men in question stormed the union office during the early hours of that fateful day when they intercepted the union office messenger not to open the union office until their union President Mr. Alpha Sulaiman Bundu whose responsibility is to seek the welfare of members explain to them on why Leone Dock Company management did not pay them their redundancy benefit.

It was said that at this juncture the messenger called on Mr. Bundu an explained how some young men stormed the office and did not allow him access to the office. Sources further revealed that after the telephone conversation, the President was quick to call on the Ross Road Police Division Local Unit Commander Samuel Sanni Sesay who promptly sent his Operations Police Officer Alhaji Turay, telling him to tell the men to come in the police station in order to settle the impasse between them and their President.

The hopeless workers became happy with the perception that the intervention of the unit commander will help them get their benefit and reconcile them as one family but unfortunately it reflected on the contrary as the LUC ordered his men to lock them up without questioning and threatened to charge them for unlawful public gathering.

After several engagements with the LUC, the men were released.

Speaking to the detainees after gaining back their liberty expressed disappointment at the LUC and described him as one of the worst Sierra Leone Police Officers that hardly say the truth adding that they doubt at his credibility and promised that they will never respond to his call in order to prevent any illegal apprehension in the future.
