Karamoh Kabba: Few days before his arrest
Police have arrested All People’s Congress (APC’s) Deputy Organising Secretary Karamoh Kabba following violent clashes in Hamilton on Monday evening between supporters of his party and the ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP).
It follows the torching of two vehicles parked inside the compound of Josephine Jackson who is the candidate of the ruling SLPP ahead of a crucial parliamentary bye-election on 24 August this year.
Police accused Kabbah of complicity in the violence. But speaking to newsmen before he was taken to the Adonkia police cell, Kabbah said he was not at the scene during the clashes saying instead that their own party supporters were stoned and injured during what was their party's turn to hold a political rally in the area.
