The deputy receiving officer at the United States embassy in Sierra Leone, Victor Mansaray, has stabbed a co-tenant and bragged that “the government is in his pockets…” alleged Isata Dumbuya, the injured victim.
Isata, who resides at McDonald Street with Victor, explained to Awoko that she was doing some domestic chores when her child Hawa told her that one Diddy had slapped her.”
“I in turn slapped Diddy and cautioned him to complain next time instead of fighting for himself,” she said.
“I was busy working,” she narrated, “when Victor approached me aggressively and asked why I slapped Diddy.”
Isata explained that, “because of the manner in which he approached me I refused to answer him.”
Isata stated that Victor then went to Mr Bundu- another tenant in the compound- and complained, adding that she then explained to Mr Bundu who tried to settle the misunderstanding.
Later, Isata went on “Victor came to where I was working and started making obnoxious comments… when he insulted my mother I went to town with him.”
She explained that, “he swiftly pounced on me, and started beating me up, and suddenly stabbed me in the head with a knife he was having in his pocket. When he saw blood oozing out of my head profusely he ran away”.
The victim told of how she phoned her husband and told him of the incident, and how he advised that she should go to the Adelaide Street Police Station for the law to take its course.
“We were at the police station,” Isata explained, “when Victor arrived. When the police saw my state they detained him.”
The case has been referred to the Central Police Station for it to be forward to court. But to date, the case file is still gathering dust somewhere at the station.
