Security is 100% Guaranteed Port Loko LUC Avers
The Local Unit Commander (LUC) for Port Loko Division, Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), Mr. Madison M. Sesay has described the security situation in the entire Port Loko District and headquarter Town as 100% guaranteed.
Responding to interview on Sunday 12th January, 2020, the Police Commander said he was not praising himself but the security alertness was demonstrated during the just concluded proposed convention as nobody brutalized or harassed throughout the process.
He said the security matters on the proposed convention was controlled by senior officers including the Deputy Police Chief, FUK Daboh Inspector General’s (AIGs) of Police and many other seniors and junior officers.
He said he was happy to report that since he took over office about a year ago, only minor offences reported in the station. “I capably of controlling the situation because I understand the tradition of the people,” he informed the media and appealed to investors to come and invest in Port Loko as the Police have all what its take to protect them and their investments.
He said one of their major challenges is that there is only one State Counsel in the North based in Makeni. He pointed out that they sometimes send files to the State Council in Makeni for legal advice. He said this process contributed hugely to the delay of suspects in custody. He described the issue of keeping suspects for over three days in custody without charging the matter to court as unfair.
“If Port Loko has its own counsel officer, matters will be expedited. The LUC boasted that he succeeded to stabilize security situation in the district because he established community policing comprehensively under the supervision of the Local Police Partnership Board (LPPB).
He extended praises to the leadership of the LPPB for their effort to watch various areas. Mr. Sesay continued that community Police representatives are always happy to work with the Police because they enjoyed an effective, active and cordial working relationship.
He said he loved by mothers and fathers in the district because he never comprised but charged matters of rape, and sexual harassment to court with immediate effect.
The LUC said he is very determining to protect the girl child because they are not only mothers but they will take over us tomorrow. “We are robust to curb any sexual related offences by dealing with perpetrators within the ambit of the law,” he told reporters. He expressed happiness over the manner in which AIG’s supervised security matters on the disposed convention and frankly stated that the nation could testify that Police Officers in Port Loko are up to the task. He spoke on the important to treat everybody equally before the law.
He said the Port Loko Division security system will continue to improve with his committed officers and described violence as an uncivilized way of life. “I existed here to enforce laws enacted by Parliament”, the Police commander told pressmen.
He concluded by encouraging everybody to work collectively being that security matter is everybody’s business.
