Threats of lynching the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists President and BBC correspondent, Umaru Fofanah was yesterday expressed at the clash between the SLPP and APC supporters.
When terror was being unleashed on the SLPP building, there were talks by some irate APC youths that they were waiting for Umaru Fofanah to show up at the scene if he was man enough. One youth on whose face terror was broadly written remarked that should the SLAJ President go there to report the incident, he will be lynched and possibly killed.
Umaru’s name was called aloud to quickly file his report to the BBC against the APC.
The SLAJ President has been accused by both the APC and SLPP parties of being biased in his reporting against them. Just some months ago it was reported that a plan was unearthed in a night club where it was suggested that cocaine should be planted on him as a way of getting rid of it.
Umaru spoke to this Press shortly after he was informed about the deadly plan and warned not to be around the scene, that nothing will stop him from perform his duty as a Journalist.
