Amidst the ongoing security conundrum in the country, the Local Unit Commander of the Mile 91 Divisional Headquarters, Chief Superintendent of Police Michael JK Lagga has warned residents in his operational vicinities of Yoni, Kholifa Mabang, and Malal Chiefdoms to be vigilant and watchful of any security threat and report to the Police.
In a radio broadcast on Sunday, November 26th, 2023 on Radio Gbafth in Mile 91 town, the LUC, CSP Lagga called on residents not to panic and assured them that the security is not only on top of the situation but will also put under control any eventuality of a security threat.
Public safety, CSP Lagga said is the police’s utmost concern but he noted that the Sierra Leone Police relied on the public to execute its duty, especially in such critical times.
It could be recalled that some unidentified people past Sunday broke into the military armory at Wilberforce Barrack in Freetown igniting tension and a security threat across the country.
In other to reduce the risk of spreading fake news and tension, the LUC assured Mile 91 residents and its neighborhoods of police presence in all corners each time they were called upon.
“Report anything suspicious of a security threat in your community and the police will intervene,” LUC Lagga said.
Logga noted that his team makes sure everyone adheres to the partial curfew imposed by the government. He called on residents to follow all security measures instituted by authorities which he said are meant to restore calm and normalcy.
Thoroughly, CSP Lagga said, those who are bent on undermining the orders and laws of the land, will be vehemently resisted.
Currently, night patrols and monitoring of strategic areas around the Mile 91 township have been ongoing since the curfew was declared.
According to the LUC, this will continue until the government deems otherwise.
Meanwhile, there has been no reported skirmish in the town since the attack on the military base was apprised.
Mile 91 is cool and calm and residents have been going about their businesses and following security resolutions put up by authorities.
