Comments: Another prisoner escape in Sierra Leone?
It was not long ago that I heard our president singing the praise of the capability of our security forces to defend our nation when UNAMSIL finally packs up in December.
Some of us still remember with nauseating feeling about the last prisoner escape. The irony about this recent escape is that the top brass of our security force was meeting at the court house where the prisoners escaped. A breach of court security in Atlanta recently left many people dead and such lapse in it self is a threat to justice. While our leaders are busy driving Humvees on the worst roads in any city have forgotten that it was only few yers ago that they were refugees in other lands.
Sierra Leoneans have every right to worry about their security come to December. If the govt cannot defend its seat why would people expect them to defend them in places like Tissana.
There is cause for alarm.
