The Local Unit Commander (LUC) of the Kenema Police Division, Vincent Kenie Nabieu, has called on the people of Kenema and its environs to reframe from rumour mongering and to remain calm as their security is always guaranteed by the security forces. He made this appeal while speaking over the weekend at the Eastern Radio in Kenema.
Vincent Nabieu said there were rumours in that city that people would force others from their houses while others threatened to burn down houses when the final results would be announced. Another rumour which made the rounds was that NEC’s chief commissioner, Dr Christiana Thorpe, had been arrested by the police for some irregularities. He appealed to all to exercise some amount of patience and wait for the final outcome, which he asked all to accept in good faith in the interest of the nation. The Kenema LUC asked all to pass on any information to the police and other authorities in their communities which they know could disturb the peace.
