It has now been made evident that the newly-arrived arms and ammunitions were bought in Romania by Frank Timis through the directives and knowledge of President Ernest bai Koroma of Sierra Leone, even though there is still an ECOWAS ban on purchase of arms and ammunitions by the government of Sierra Leone. Interesting enough, the two forty feet containers of arms that arrived last week were to be ascribed to the sacked Vice President Alhadji Samuel Sam-Sumana.
Sources close to Statehouse in Freetown say some of the arms were to be hidden in the VP’s compounds in Kono City and Murray Town in Freetown. A former aide to VP Sam-Sumana was hired to confess that Sam-Sumana brought in the arms for a coup against the government. Sam Sumana would then be arrested with several of his key supporters in the name of an alledged coup d’état. Unfortunately the new arms did not only delay in coming, but Sam Sumana left barely ten days before the arms arrived.
The President did reject an earlier suggestion from his military adviser to collect arms and ammunitions from the army but the President intended to use the new arms and ammunition as evidence to inform the people of Sierra Leone and the world about Sam-Sumana’s diabolic moves and power Intentions
One Mr Nelson, who has been executing many dubious activities for the President informed this press; “The Pa was very angry, when he heard that the VP had left the shores of Sierra Leone”. But according to Brigadier Harlsten, who spoke to a junior army officer, he ” knew that the plan was dangerous, unfair and unjust”. The heads of the army, Williams and the Police Boss, Francis Munu did not know about such a dangerous plan of the Pesident.
Now that the arms arrived after Sam-Sumana’s departure, they have all been deposited in Jui outside Freetown while a huge cache of the arms are stationed at the Murray Town Ordinance in Freetown.
According to the Inspector General of Police; “We have by default acquired huge arms and ammunition that we really do not need”. The President’s security friend and driver, one Mr Kabba, told another comrade that “The Pa is worried that Sam-Sumana was taking his case of unlawful dismissal to the ECOWAS COURT and that is the bad thing for the government”. When asked to explain in Detail, Kabba further pointed out that “The Pa told the Supreme Judges that Sam-Sumana will never leave the country so they should not be worried of their decision being over-turned”. So the failed plan to set up Sam Sumana for a coup was the last idea gone bad.
The President’ s finance man, Victor commented; “The only plan good for the Pa now is to be in power until he dies, otherwise many things will come out”. That’s the reason for the “More Time Campaign” boiling up in the Country.
President Koroma had earlier facilitated the withdrawal of Sam-Sumana’s diplomatic passport. The President is currently at loggerheads with Dr Samura Kamara and Mr.Kolifa of the Immigration Office for failing to stop Sam-Sumana from leaving the Country. The Foreign Affairs Minister and the Immigration Boss are expected to be removed from their respective positions for not working in favour of their master.
Meanwhile the Foreign Minister is in search of a new job.
