Locals in Sierra Leone have recovered the bodies of two fishermen who drowned at Shells Wata in Waterloo three days ago.

24 Hours Bloggers reported that the two men drowned as a result of bad weather between Saturday and Sunday.

Most local fishermen in Sierra Leone are prone to accidents at sea when the weather is unfriendly. The Sierra Leone Maritime Administration (SLMA) admonished fishermen and sea passengers to avoid traveling after 6pm and in the event of a rainstorm. But most locals in riverine areas along the coast use dugout canoes for fishing and the easiest way to travel.

In another news, police said they arrested 20 people in Waterloo yesterday, September 11 for unlawful assembly.

There were rumours of protest on Monday, but police declared the procession illegal because of faceless organisers. Although, most of the capital was peaceful, there were reports of gunshot around the capital. By midday, there was a report of one dead at Moyiba community in Kissy, a sprawling suburb in the capital Freetown.
