Two employees of the Standard Chartered Bank have been caught in Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) dragnet for allegedly facilitating Prince Taylor to misappropriate about Le60 million of public funds.
Sources within the ACC revealed to AWOKO that the two Clarence Bona and Alimamy Monrovia were last week arrested and detained by the Anti-Corruption Commission on allegations of aiding and abetting the misappropriation of the funds.
It is alleged that they helped the former staff of the British Council, Prince Taylor, recently declared wanted by the ACC, to set up an account at the Standard Chartered Bank
Furthermore the ACC is further alleging that the account was set up in the name of N-Range Enterprises, in which the said amount was paid into rather than NRA which it was meant for.
The source further disclosed that the alleged N-Range Enterprise account has been frozen and the ACC has further restrained Prince Taylor from selling his house at No. 1 SLBS drive at Goderich Village.
However, it was learnt over the weekend that Prince Taylor is currently on the run and the ACC has issued a wanted arrest for him alongside a former colleague at the British Council David Charm aka Abubakarr Jalloh.
The former was Finance Executive attached to the Justice Sector Development Programme and was residing at Murray Town.
Also wanted by the ACC is another former Finance Manager at the British Council James Kanu.
The ACC has further released the names of three other wanted persons and they are: Christopher Ogunade, a former Clerk of Elsie May Chambers of 12 Siaka Stevens Street, Freetown, formerly of Watson Street, Freetown and now said to be living at 20 Jones Street, Freetown and Edward Yamba Koroma, whose last place of work was the Rice Research Station, Rokupr.The last known address was Chief Koroma’s Compound, Mayenkieneh Road Calaba Town.
Rounding up the list of wanted persons is the former General Manager of Sierra Leone Water Company and Proprietor of APEN Con Company, Justin Andrew Musa, who jumped bail some years ago.
Meanwhile the Commission has charged Alimu Bah, General Secretary of the Sierra Leone Football Association with the offence of misappropriating donor funds contrary to section 13 of the Anti-Corruption Act 2000 as amended. The Commission alleged that he dishonestly appropriated donor funds to the Sierra Leone Football Association by the Confederation of African Football.
