The Director of Crime Services in the Sierra Leone Police, AIG Brima Jah has said in Freetown that the police have put five million Leones (Le5M) ransom as reward to anyone who will help them arrest the All People’s Congress (APC) Party National Publicity Secretary Cornelius Deveaux and APC Youth Leader of Constituency 117 in the Western Area Alfred Sulaiman Mansaray.

The Police have declared the two wanted for their alleged involvement in the riot that took place on Friday May 31st 2019 at their party headquarters.

Addressing journalists at an emergency news conference held at police headquarters, AIG Jah accused Deveaux and Mansaray of inciting their colleagues after two high court judges declared the elections of ten APC Members of Parliament null and void.

Justices Komba Kamanda and Alhaji Momoh Jah Stevens of the High Courts of Sierra Leone ordered the National Electoral Commission to conduct a re-run election in Constituency 110 in the Western Urban area while the SLPP candidates who came second in the March 2018 General Elections  should  replace the APC Parliamentarians in Parliament.

This ruling did not go down well with APC supporters who staged a protest in front of their party headquarters in Freetown.

AIG Jah accused Mansaray of inciting party supporters to cause trouble contrary to the laws of the country.

He described the two men as ring leaders and organizers of the riot and protest at the APC headquarters immediately after the High Court judges ruled against the 10 APC Parliamentarians.

The crime buster pointed out that all those behind the Friday riot including Alfred Sulaiman Mansaray will face the full force of the law.

“The Le5M is for anyone that will help the Police to arrest Deveaux and Mansaray. I am appealing to the people to support us arrest these two ring leaders and organizers,” AIG Jah stressed.
