Soldiers Stop Samura Kamara at Mile 38, Fire Gunshots
Some Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF) personnel have reportedly stopped the convoy of the main opposition, All People’s Congress (APC) flag bearer, Samura Kamara and opened fire at a civilian vehicle. Samura Kamara made this known on his Twitter handle. According to Kamara, his convoy was stopped at Mile 38 Checkpoint from entering the country’s capital, Freetown. He added that, in execution of “orders from above” the soldiers fired seven live bullets on an unarmed vehicle. The APC flag bearer revealed that troops of military personnel are still in confrontation. The APC presidential candidate is returning to his residence at Freetown after a week-long trip to the United States.
According to reports, Kamara left the US on Friday night after engaging US Congressional Leaders, senators, head of human rights organizations, Democratic institutional leaders, representatives at the Carter Center, and other Sierra Leoneans living in America in a town hall meeting.
