The police in Kenema are investigating a matter involving the slicing of an ˜Okada riders ear by a 20-year-old school-going
According to police constable 9592 Kadie Turay of the media unit of the police division in Kenema, the Okada rider Mohamed Nalloh of Burma 4 Layout, an outskirt of Kenema, was out and about early in the morning when he came in contact with a passenger at the Mobil filling station at Hangha Road.
The passenger, Sylvester Mohamed Alusine of 12 Bockarie Lane, the report alleged, told the rider to take him to Bockarie Gbey Street at Shembeck.
Upon arrival at the said address, Alusine gave Le2, 000 to the rider. But Nalloh said Alusine was the first passenger and so he did not have a change of Le1, 000 at the moment after making an effort to get a change from a fellow ˜Okada rider failed.
So Alusine then told Nalloh to go with the money but to come and collect him later. Nalloh then went off after that gentlemanâ€™s agreement.
Unfortunately for Nalloh, while on his way back to the city centre, one of his tyres punctured and he had to take it to a place called Cotton Tree for repairs.
Meanwhile Alusine, who had been waiting for what seemed to be ages without seeing Nalloh, took off from the house.
But on his way he met Nalloh repairing his Okada tyre at the Cotton Tree. He then asked the rider why he did not collect him as agreed. The rider asked him whether he was not seeing what he was doing there. He gave back the Le2, 000 to Alusine and asked him to give him his Le1, 000 fare.
Alusine, who had grabbed the money, retorted that he too did not have change and that he was going with the money because Nalloh did not keep to his promise. He walked off.
Nalloh then chased him and requested his fare. An argument ensued which led to a fistfight that ended up with Alusine slicing off Nalloh’s left ear.
Nalloh is at present seeking medical treatment.
