A police officer, Inspector Abdul Razak Jalloh, assigned as a personal bodyguard to the former All People Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Dr. Samura Kamara, has disappeared after he managed to escape from detention.

According to reports, during the 2018 general election, he was assigned as a close protection bodyguard to Dr. Samura Kamara, an election the APC lost to the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP). And he remained assigned to Samura until 4th March 2022 when he was with Dr. Samura Kamara at the main Law Court at Siaka Stevens Street for the ongoing corruption trial of Samura. Because of the political nature of the trial, tension was around the court building where a crowd had gathered.

Eyewitnesses  said the serious confrontation between mainly party supporters and the police caused Jalloh to take action against those he thought were trying to harm Samura he was protecting; and because of his actions to protect the former presidential candidate, other armed personnel issued a warrant for his arrest, stating that the warrant was ‘orders from above.’

He was taken to CID Headquarters and locked up without any statement.

He has not been seen after he escaped from police custody.
