Sierra Leone Opposition Ex-Combatants Stab Each Other at SLPP Offices

Tamba Kailondo at Central Police Station last evening in abysmal half-dressed condition his SLPP colleagues handed him to police. Abravos photo is not published as it had too much blood on it.
Whilst the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) partisans were wrapping up their peaceful rejoicings on streets of Sierra Leone to mark nomination day of their candidates for the November 17th elections, it has last night of October 11th 2012, been confirmed to Awareness Times by Central Police Division in Freetown that they received a complaint of Wounding & Assault on an SLPP ex-combatant Ibrahim Sheriff (aka ABRAVO) caused by his fellow SLPP member named Tamba Kailondo. Both men are fierce ex-combatants loyal to SLPP presidential candidate Julius Maada Bio. Kailondo stabbed Abravo on his left temple leaving several huge horrible-looking gashes there.

According to ASP Musa Bangura, Operations Officer of Central Police Division which is located by the SLPP headquarters, the Police had received tips SLPP ex-combatants had planned to wreck havoc in the city whilst counter-tips claimed APC partisans plan to attack SLPP HQs.

As a result, my men deployed a buffer zone all around SLPP headquarters the whole day. It was just this night after festivities had died down and we were back at the station that SLPP members rushed in from direction of their office with Sheriff covered in blood from stab wounds to his temple and Kailondo beaten up by other SLPP members for allegedly stabbing Sheriff. We have now issued a Medical Form to Sheriff whilst Kailondo is detained pending investigations, ASP Bangura said.

It can be recalled that this newspaper has severally raised alarms about the growing impudence with which the opposition offices were being turned into a den of extreme violence and use of prohibited mind-changing drugs like Cannabis Sativa.

Clearly, the opposition SLPP Office is now a den of violence and drugs. It can be recalled that recently, foreign journalists were captured off the streets of the capital city and abducted for torture and theft because they were suspected to be in favour of the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC).

So far, initial reports are that the brawl inside the party headquarters between Tamba Kailondo (Kailondo the Warrior) and Ibrahim Abravo Sheriff (Brave Sheriff of the Wild Wild East) was over the sum of US$500 which was given to the ex-combatants to carry out a mission that day along the streets of Freetown. Kailondo the Warrior alleged that Brave Sheriff of the Wild Wild East took a lion's share of the money and only gave him a pittance. The exact nature of the botched mission is unclear but the robust combined police and military presence on the streets of Freetown made any nefarious plans an impossibility yesterday.

It can be recalled that the opposition keeps on asking for the Sierra Leone Police to be disarmed before the elections.
Kailondo the Warrior looks up to the midnight skies in a state of wretchedness after his SLPP colleagues had well beaten him up for landing multiple stabs with a knife on Abravo's temple

END OF REPORT OF SAGA OF KAILONDO vs. ABRAVO
