Sierra Leone’s Francis Munu is using two stolen Range Rover sport Jeeps stolen from USA and brought to Sierra Leone through Guinea-Conakry.
According to a reliable source at the US Embassy in Freetown, the Sierra Leone Police Force was alerted about the two stolen vehicles and when they arrived in Freetown, they were taken from the Guineans who brought them to Freetown for sale. As the US embassy had no need for the vehicles, they were turned over to IGP Francis Munu for the Sierra Leone Police to be used as covert vehicles in various police operations.
Meanwhile, the UNDP in Freetown received a project documents from the Sierra Leone Police Force asking for vehicles for the same use. The UNDP in Sierra Leone provided the funds thinking that IG Munu was going to buy two suitable vehicles for covert use by the police. It is believed that the IGP diverted the fund into other private bank aacounts. The IGP supplied fake receipts to UNDP claiming that the two vehicles have been bought.
Currently, the IGP Francis Munu is using one of the vehicles with the SLP 001 registration number and the other Range Rover sports Jeep is being parked at his residence and simultaneously being used as his private vehicle with a private number plate.
The purpose of asking for funds from UNDP has not been fulfilled but money collected. The US embassy gave or allowed the police to utilize the stolen vehicles for covert use.
Apart from his official black Jeep given to him by the government of Sierra Leone, the Inspector-General Of Police is always using the two stolen Jeeps donated to the Police Force by the US Embassy in Freetown irrespective of the fact that the Sierra Leone Police Force has no covert vehicles for major operational duties.
