The Bo East End Police station has confirmed to Awoko that fifteen people have presently been indicted as ‘suspects’ in the murder case of the only Junior Secondary French Teacher at the Bo Government Secondary School, Stevens Komba Koroma.
The fifteen were arraigned during a Police check at the Koroma-Yomuh Street and Thomas Street axis within the remote East End Yumoh Town Section of Bo. The fifteen involves students both in school and tertiary institutions, teachers, a police man, prostitutes, and community members from all works of life.
A Crime Officer at the Police Station and who is attached to the case told Awoko that the arraignment of the fifteen does not mean “they committed the crime.” In fact, two of the fifteen, he explained have been “let free” as the police found “nothing to charge them for.” In worse, he related that two of the suspects also were on the run; with one being an Ahmadiyya pupil and the other a worker. He also confirmed of a Police attached to the same police station being involved. “We have a police man also in custody for the same offense. He then showed Awoko the names among which include 12 males and 3 females.
Meanwhile, the 31 years old French was tortured and killed on the early ungodly hours of the 31st July and dropped by the community Police station in Yumoh Town.
The Local Unit Commander Sheku G Sankoh assured Awoko that the “perpetrators would be found and punished.”
The Media Relations Officer at the same station told, Inspector Abdulai Senu affirmed to Awoko of the fifteen accused and the on-going investigations. “We do not want let out a name now to the public that would jeopardize the investigations. He said that the names of the fifteen could not be released now as some might go free through the ‘screening process.”
He bragged that the SLP wants to get substantial evidence before they take the accused people to court.
