The Legal luminary posted on his Twitter page that “Unless the National Constitution is suspended, a national CURFEW cannot be declared in the absence of a declaration of state of Emergency in the Whole or part of Sierra Leone. I understand the need for tough response but security measures mustn’t breach the Supreme Law.”

The said curfew shall be in force from 3pm on the 10th August, 2022, to 7am of 11th August 2022.
