Sierra Leoneans appalled by human rights abuses committed by security forces to enforce Coronavirus lockdown

NOBODY  will deny the fact that people need to stay home during the lockdown  imposed by government to combat the coronavirus and  ensure the safety of families and the public. However, Sierra Leoneans are appaled at the vicious beatings and gross human rights abuses committed by the security forces while trying to enforce compliance..

The security forces should have found  a more humane method to get those people home. They needed water, food and basic necessities. That is why people of them were  out there. Nobody was brutalized during the Ebola lockdown. Govt.ensured food, water and light and people conformed and stayed home

Humans are not dogs, so it is wrong to say “Kill dog befo dog make dog know say die day”. That is human rights abuse .


Tyranny, dictatorship, violence, horrendous abuse by government  are  unacceptable. The world is watching Sierra Leone slide into a pariah state.

Shame on these Military and Police officers. I hope the authorities fired them and charge them to court. This is not a good image for our country Sierra Leone. Let make these vidoes viral. “Mob justice or anarchy”

The military or police forces are trained to protect lives and properties of every citizens. This video just exposed how some of our men serving in uniform are undermining the good of the force. This is painful to watch.

This is human rights violation,for God sake this is 21st century we dont need to use cane to discipline people.

This is so wrong and I know the government did not give anyone order to beat.

President Bio 2 years achievements are:
1)political prisoners 2)killings 3)stealing

Mohamed Mash Bangura Yes the law must be upheld but our security personnel should not be overzealous. This is a moment of stress for our country, no need to heighten tension unnecessarily. Someone needs to caution our brothers and sisters in uniform to do their work with civility and human face especially in poor communities where people are coming out to fetch water. No need to beat and confiscate their jerry cans. Let’s fight Corona if you have no business outside stay indoor.
