Mada Bio rejects medical report in Sierra Leone and says “I going to Ghana for treatment”

A twenty-one-man team of investigators left last Monday night for the second city of Bo to collaborate with Police officers in that part of the country in the investigation of the burning of houses, office of the APC party and the killing and wounding of citizens in Bo during the visit of the Presidential Candidate of the Sierra Leone People’s Party, Mr. Julius Maada Bio and his supporters.

The SLPP, according to Police sources informed them of a “thank you mission” to their supporters in the Southeastern part of the Country, which turned out to be a political rally that resulted in the burning of the APC office, the house of the APC Chairman, Mr. Sheik Sillah and the Regional Secretariat of the party and a number of individuals in tears.

According to the spokesmen of the SLPP, Hon. Sam, he claimed that their leader was stoned by some APC supporters as they processed through the streets of Bo in front of the APC party office.

“Our leader was stoned while he was in his open-top jeep waving to his supporters, thereby sustaining serious head injuries” Hon. Sam said, and went on to explain that after sustaining multiple head injuries he was rushed to Dr. Yilla’s hospital where he was treated and later came to the Coronation field in Bo to deliver the thank you message to his supporters.

The return of Mr. Julius Maada Bio and his supporters to Freetown was done on a very low key after coming to terms with the reality that his supporters over reacted.

On Monday this week, statement was obtained from the Presidential Candidate by Police and advised to see the Police Medical Practitioner before proceeding for medical treatment to Ghana as he claimed that he was feeling pain and had suspected that a damage may have occurred to his head. Police, according to party sources advised him to be properly and medically examined, which he refused to, do, for reason he was not able to give. Yesterday, he left for the Lungi Airport and when called on the phone by Police to treat the advice giving to him seriously, he informed them that he was already at the Airport waiting to board the Kenya Airline to take him to Ghana.

An Executive Member of the SLPP, who spoke in confidence to this medium explained that the alleged wounding was over played, which Mr. Julius Maada Bio does not want any other person to see as the information would possibly leak out to the public that his supporters only made loud noise about, which the wound does not deserve, therefore he would prefer to hide it until he gets to Ghana and receive treatment and his expected to spend few days there until the area begins to heal “ We made a terrible mistake, which almost all of us as Executive Members are regretting now” The officer revealed. What has become a matter of concern to most of the Executive Members is for some of their supporters not to be arrested, tried for various offences and sent to jail “Our supporters went beyond our imagination, but we cannot say it openly” He added.

Meanwhile, a number of suspects who allegedly carried out the inhuman acts have reportedly been arrested, while Police are on the lookout for the others. Names of other suspects that statements have already been obtained from would soon be arrested and brought down to Freetown. The Head of the investigation team is the Director of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Mr. Karo Kamara
