“It seems APC is wishing for a second round of war. They will soon get it if they continue on this path. The last time they joined the AFRC/RUF coalition, we kicked their arses. We shall do it again. That’s why we have burnt down the car of the Resident Minister Southern Province. Next in line is Musa Tarawallie. We will burn down his house and car. ”

“The army is already split because of APC tribalism so if they think they have an army, they are in for a rude awakening. Ernest Koroma may not finish his term if he continues to exhibit such incompetence in governance. Again, APC shall get its wish and this time the Southeast may just prevent the central government from looting our resources as we provide 85% of the country’s GDP. ”

“Hey Kabs if war breaks out be rest assured we will expel your ………… you are the enemies within. In fact I am not sure they are safe. I may just send information so that your …….. is harrassed. You have taken our hospitality for granted. You enjoy Southern hospitality but burn with hatred.”

THOUGH THESE THREATS were made in an open online forum where people do not use their real names, Police , FBI and Home Security Operatives advice that all threats to human life be taken seriously and not be taken for granted.

We have taken the appropriate measures and informed the relevant security authorities in the U.S and Sierra Leone .

A press statement from the COCORIOKO BOARD is coming out soon.
