Senior CID Police Officers have few days ago, officially handed over to Dr. Sylvia Blyden, her black Pathfinder Jeep with registration number ADA 453 that had been in their custody as a result of allegedly suspicious Nigerians being found therein along Lumley Beach.
Dr. Sylvia Blyden has since received back her Jeep which is now in her possession. CID Police officers say they have no reason to continue to hold on to the Jeep or to even remotely link Blyden to armed robbers.
Dr. Blydenís driver Mohamed Kujabi who was driving the Jeep at the time it was apprehended has also been released on bail but another of her staff, Kalidu Jalloh, is still being treated as a suspect because he had allegedly acted suspiciously and jumped to run when the armed policemen surrounded the Jeep along Lumley Beach Road. He was subsequently chased, captured, presented to the public as an armed robber and given a massive beating by the mob who had gathered.
Speaking to Awareness Times at the CID where he is still detained, the badly wounded Kalidu Jalloh claims that the reason why he panicked and ran was because the policemen pointed guns at them upon surrounding the Jeep.
