Police detectives attached to the Mena Police Station in Makeni will now have the difficult task of investigating the mysterious circumstances leading to the looting of a mission school at Ropolon.
Although photo exhibits have already been taken at the crime scene the headmistress of the Benevolent Primary School, Mrs. Deborah Rollings, is also at pains as to which version of the incident she will explain to the mission’s board of governors.
According to Mrs. Koroma the night guard, Pa Abu Kamara, told her about the robbery last Saturday morning at her residence, explaining that he met the door open when he was making his early morning routine check.
The headmistress further told our correspondent that she got intelligence report that the night watchman was fast asleep when the robbers burst open the main Class 6 door, and carted away text and exercise books, two 34 centimeter drinking bucket and a wall clock. Retreating from the school the robbers succeeded in carting away nine chickens from a nearby house belonging to Mrs. Adama Koroma of Sacathie Street.
