Police in Sierra Leone have arrested the Spokesman of the main opposition All People’s Congress party.

The Secretary General of the party, Osman Yansanneh says Sidi Yayah Tunis has been locked up at the CID headquarters.

The Inspector General of Police, Ambrose Sovula says Mr Tunis was “invited for questioning” after an interview he granted Radio Democracy yesterday with some of his statements deemed tantamount to “incitement”.

He wouldn’t elaborate. The APC party has dismissed the interpretation of the interview.
