The Sierra Leone Police (SLP) has named and shamed four (4) secondary schools in the country. The Saint Edwards Secondary School, Albert Academy, Sierra Leone Muslim Congress and Ahmadiyya Muslim Secondary School have been described by the police as the most troublesome (rebel) schools in the country.

This was disclosed to newsmen on Tuesday 9th February 2010 during the weekly police briefing summoned at the George Street Headquarters of the Sierra Leone Police.

Police Superintendent Memunatu Bangura said a police investigation has proved that a total of twenty (20) schools in the country are bent on perpetrating various forms of violence, thus posing a threat to national security.

According to the female police boss, it has also been unearthed that most of the violence perpetrated by pupils in schools has the support of their teachers.

"The teachers collect money from parents and use illegal means to enroll pupils in schools" she explained, adding: "It is these illegal pupils who are always at the forefront of perpetrating violence". She added that the Principals of the various schools cannot account for the pupils involved in violence acts since their names are not in the schoolsí registers.

The police, she continued, have mapped out special strategies in a bid to curb the menace.

"The police force will commence random checking in schools in order to fish out troublesome pupils" she said, adding that the pupils would be investigated and face the full force of the law if found wanting.

She furthered that the operation will commence by next week, whilst pointing out that the citizens should not be surprise to see police arresting pupils starting next week.
