In a recent statement, Ady Macauley, a prominent APC politician and former Anti-Corruption Commissioner, disclosed that the government of President Bio imposed a five-year travel ban on him, restricting him from leaving the country for two and a half years.

What adds to the intrigue of this revelation is Macauley’s assertion that he was never subjected to an investigation by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) or any other authority.

Macauley’s travel ban has now been lifted, restoring his constitutional right to freedom of movement. However, he is demanding answers regarding how his name ended up on the travel ban list in the first place, raising concerns about the transparency and legality of such actions.

He wrote; “I was placed on a travel ban by the President Bio government for 5 years. Two and half years of those five years I was unable to leave the shores of Sierra Leone. The interesting thing is this, I was never investigated by the COl or any other authority. Now that my violated constitutional right to freedom of movement has been rightfully restored, can someone explain to me how my name got into that list? This is time for answers and not commendations or celebrations.

This development has sparked a debate within Sierra Leone, with citizens and activists calling for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding Ady Macauley’s travel ban and the criteria used to place individuals on such lists. It remains to be seen whether this controversy will lead to increased scrutiny of government actions and further calls for accountability.

As the situation unfolds, Sierra Leoneans eagerly await explanations and clarity regarding Ady Macauly’s case, emphasizing the importance of upholding constitutional rights and the rule of law in the nation.
