Sierra Leone News : 3 arrested for conveying sick person to Port Loko

Port Loko, July 13 (SLENA) - The District Coordinator of the Ebola Response Centre in the Port Loko District, Hon. Raymond Kabia has ordered the arrest and detention of two motor bike riders and a lady for transporting a sick man from Freetown to Port Loko.


According to report, Mohamed Kamara, Abdu Aziz Kamara and Mariatu Kamara were intercepted at the Gberay Junction Ebola Screening Check point by the Commanding Officers, Police Inspector Augustine Kamara and Sgt. Tamba Torto of the Republic Of Sierra Leone Armed Forces.

 

In an interview with the Sierra Leone News Agency (SLENA), the officers said Alimamy Kamara and team arrived at the Check Point on board two motor bikes under the control of Abdul Aziz Kamara and Mohamed Kamara, respectively.

 

They said Alimamy (the sick) was the pillion on the motor bike of Abdul Aziz Kamara while Mariatu was with Mohamed Kamara on a separate motor bike. The officers said the riders were going to bulldoze their way through the Check Point when compelled to a halt. It was quick for the security personnel to notice the sick person they were carrying along and were ushered to a corner while an alert was sent to the Ebola Command and Control Centre in Port Loko.


Alimamy Kamara was by then very helpless and eventually succumbed to the excruciating pains. He suddenly vomited and died right there. His death was relayed to the District Coordinator, Hon. Raymond Kabia who rushed to the scene with a cross section of his staff including the Communications and Situation Analyst for a firsthand information on how it all happened.

 

The Coordinator and Team witnessed the swab process and the subsequent taking away of the remains of Alimamy Kamara for burial which was conducted by the Sierra Leone Red Cross Society.

 

The security officers told SLENA in an interview that no one could actually tell how the suspects were able to go through the numerous Screening Points from Freetown to Gberray Junction where they ran out of luck and eventually intercepted.

 

The District Coordinator ordered that Mohamed Kamara, Abdul Aziz Kamara and Mariatu Kamara be conveyed to the Isolation Home at Lungi Lol in the Kaffu Bullom Chiefdom and that the two motor bikes should be impounded to await the outcome of the swab result and will be destroyed if the result of the swab turns out positive. “We are not going to take chances this time around in our fight to flush the virus out of the district’, the Coordinator emphasized.

 

The three people from Freetown little realized that it was forbidding for a sick or dead person to be transported to and from the district as well as the corresponding penalties. Hon. Kabia said those who were conveying the now deceased person have contravened the law and will be liable to a jail term each.
