Fresh Political Violence in Sierra Leone gets Woman RAPED in Kono this morning

APC Thugs led by a notorious APC Youth Leader in Kono in the early morning hours of this morning allegedly kidnapped an SLPP woman and gang-raped her in a fresh show of political violence in the diamond rich Kono district.

 

The SLPP, led by its National Chairman, John Benjamin, had been in Kono yesterday to hold Memorial Rites in honour of the late SLPP Strongman, Paul Dumbar. After the traditional rites yesterday where libation was poured at the grave of the late man, the SLPP party held a small disco party which got disrupted by APC thugs.

 

In the ensuing melee with everyone fleeing for their lives, this Kono woman (name withheld) was openly captured off an Okada Motorbike along Kainkordu Road near Richmond Nightclub, allegedly beaten up, stabbed and gang-raped by several APC youths led by one man simply identified as Adamu. Earlier in the day, Adamu had publicly threatened the gathering of SLPP supporters that SLPP will never rise in Kono again.

 

Other victims of this fresh political violence and intolerance are other Kono women who though not raped, sustained serious physical injuries from stones hurled at them by Adamu and his group.

 

The allegedly raped Kono woman is currently at the Kono Government Hospital awaiting medical attention. Mysteriously, no doctor can be located right now to treat her and examine her. They are all said to "not be around".

 

Readers may contact the Awareness Times reporter on the ground who is right now with the woman at the Hospital on phone number +232-77-270008 for more details on this shocking distressful development.

 

Stay tuned for this developing story.
