John Benjamin & his former Sierra Leone Bodyguard, Ex-Lieutenant Christopher Stevens

Sierra Leone main opposition party (SLPP) Chairman John Benjamin has more than one son. The eldest son goes by the name John Benjamin. He is a fine gentleman raised by his grandma in Segbwema. He is never associated with scandal. He now lives successfully in USA. The second is also named John Benjamin & raised by his mother, putative wife of John Benjamin. He regularly brings shame to his father.

 

In yesterdays edition of DEMOCRAT, the second son of John Benjamin, wrongly portrayed himself as the eldest son in an article which any sane person would not have written knowing the circumstances between his father and the said Ex-Lieutenant Christopher Stevens mentioned therein.

 

Christopher Stevens was bodyguard to Valentine Strasser during NPRC days but he faithfully first served under late Captain Prince Ben-Hirsch (John Benjamins brother) and after the NPRC regime, he served John Benjamin directly for over five years as his immediate personal guard. He knows a lot about Benjamin; Some might say, he knows too much.

 

This is the same Christopher Stevens that John Benjamins second son is writing to attack in newspaper pages as APC thug. His elder brother, (real eldest son of John Benjamin) has already phoned up Christo to try to assuage tensions. That is what is expected of sane people.

 

There was also a needless mention of my name in the article. As I have told John Benjamins eldest son over the phone, if Christo Stevens calls up Benjamin, his former boss, a man he once guarded and a man he had plotted the NPRC coup with, to advise him to concede Elections results, is that any reason why he should be attacked by Benjamins badly raised second-born son?

 

Ex-Lieutenant Christopher Stevens is not an APC thug. He is a very responsible Sierra Leone citizen who has spent many years working as Operations Manager for a well established private security company.

 

It is hoped that despite their frustrations over loss of elections that should have brought them back to squirrel State funds of the people of Sierra Leone, certain of John Benjamins family members will advise themselves as to how they comport themselves in public.

 

The truth is that no one made any death threats against John Benjamin. No one needs to kill Benjamin; his actions are suicidal of himself.
