Ministry of Information and Civic Education has officially confirmed that Ibrahim Washingai Mansaray remains a fugitive and is wanted by the Sierra Leone Police.

Mansaray is a prime suspect in connection with the alleged planning of the failed coup that occurred on 26th November 2023 in Freetown.

Contrary to circulating rumors, the Ministry has emphatically denounced any claims of Mansaray’s arrest, declaring such reports as false.

The confirmation serves to dispel misinformation and underscores the ongoing efforts of law enforcement agencies in their pursuit of Mansaray, who is believed to be evading capture.

The failed coup on the specified date stirred national concern, prompting heightened security measures and an intensive investigation into the alleged conspirators. The Ministry’s clarification aims to provide accurate information to the public, discouraging the spread of unfounded rumors that may contribute to confusion and panic within the community.

The Sierra Leone Police continue their relentless efforts to locate and apprehend Mansaray, urging citizens to remain vigilant and report any relevant information that may aid in his capture.
