By Jonathan Macaulay
Reports emanating from the Waterloo Police Station indicate that fifteen drums of diesel allegedly owned by the London Mining company that were apprehended by the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Mustapha Kamara last Saturday night at a place called “Deep Eye Water”, in the Western Area Rural District have gone missing at the Waterloo Police Station.
As investigations continue into the matter, the drums of Diesel are nowhere to be seen after last seen at the Police Station.
Upon receiving information about the apprehended fifteen drums of diesel, this reporter on Tuesday 17th April 2012 at around 4 pm rushed to the scene to get a glimpse of the diesel at the compound of the Waterloo Police Station Tuesday.
“The next day, on a Wednesday morning, when I went to the Police station to continue my investigation I was astounded to discover that the fifteen drums of diesel seen at the station were no more at the Police station, and when enquired about them, the Local Unit Commander Mr. Conteh said the matter has not yet been reported to him and referred this reporter to the Crime Officer who was not around at the time the exhibits were seen at the station, reportedly attending a meeting of Commanders at the CID Headquarters in Freetown” Jonathan Macauley explained
Pastor John Bangura of the CID Division Waterloo branch, when interviewed together with one of his colleagues who apprehended the fifteen drums of Diesel at “Deep Eye Water” claimed not to have knowledge about the exhibits.
It may sound unbelievable that none of the officers at the Waterloo Police Station could throw light as to what happened to the fifteen drums of Diesel allegedly stolen from the London Company. Up to press time, standard times learnt that the company has been notified about the drums of diesel that were stolen from them and how they got missing at the Waterloo Police Station.
