Captain Valentine Strasser Is Not Dead - Mother assures

Contrary to the wild rumours that spread through Freetown, Sierra Leone yesterday November 4th 2008, numerous family sources of the late former Head of State, Capt. Valentine Esegrabo Melvin Strasser have told this newspaper that the former military junta leader was not dead.

Strasser’s mother who spoke to this newspaper’s reporters assured that her son was not dead. The wild rumour originated from APC’s Propaganda sources who seem to be wishing ill upon Strasser. Strasser was the leader of the military junta that overthrew the APC Government of President Joseph Momoh in April 1992.

 

A few weeks ago, the editor of a pro-Government online newspaper went over the Internet to make an alarming call for people to go and check on Strasser as he had gotten what he called "worrying reports."

 

It later proved to be a hoax; just as was yesterday’s "obituary".
