According to Abu, his brush with the police has emboldened the Consortium to do more and stressed that he is willing to lay his life rather than keep silent on issues affecting access and affordability when it comes to bread and butter issues negatively affecting the average citizen. He vowed that he would be back soon. He added that by citizens he means all classes of Sierra Leoneans including police personnel.
Abu at a press conference further stated that there is some misinformation circulating around that Consortium members tore up posters and pulled down banners of the President and Vice President; which he described as “a lie”.
He claimed he had written a letter earlier to the police soliciting their protection and indicating the route the protesters would take but that it is unfortunate that they were treated with disdain by the police.
