After a long dispute over Yenga, a border village between Guinea and Sierra Leone, Guinean troops are reported to be gradually relocating to Norgowa in their country with all their military equipment.
According to the second in command at the 1st Battalion in Kailahun, Major A.K Kamara, “only eight Guinean personnel are currently occupying Yenga as compared to resent past when over 200 Guinean troops were deployed there”. He said the eight personnel were waiting to harvest their cassava farm before crossing over to Guinea. Unlike previous time when people including security personnel from Sierra Leone were restricted to Yenga, now there is free movement of people in and out of that once disputed village from both countries.
Major Kamara further revealed that, “the Battalion still maintains one company at the forward patrol base at Koindu with deployment at Baidu and Buedu”.
