The Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority is perturbed to inform the public that a group of commercial motor bike riders in Kambia on Sunday July 25th 2021 violently attacked enforcement personnel of The Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority (Road Safety Corps), while they were executing their lawful duties at Bamoi Luma, Magbema Chiefdom, Kambia District.
Management is deeply disturbed over the frequent attacks on personnel of the Authority by members of the Commercial Motor Bike Riders especially in the Kambia District.
Four of the Authority’s personnel were seriously injured including the Head of Station Mr. Ibrahim Tejan Sarto, while several operational tools were either destroyed or carted away by the attackers.
Whilst no arrest has been made so far by the Sierra Leone Police, Management condemns the perpetual attacks on its personnel and facility in Kambia.
We call on the Security Sector to not only thoroughly investigate and prosecute the perpetrators but to also put modalities in place to forestall future occurrences.
