Reports indicate that Lansana Dumbuya, the Secretary-General of the opposition All People’s Congress (APC), is currently making a statement at the Criminal Investigations Department.

SierraEye reports that He was invited by the police to make a statement regarding a video he put out yesterday. It is not clear if he is being charged with any offence.

Dumbuya, on behalf of the APC announced on Tuesday that the party would stage a nationwide peaceful protest following the failure of the Chief Electoral Commissioner, Mohammed Konneh and his electoral commissioners to resign or address their concerns regarding the forthcoming election as demanded in an earlier press conference.

The peaceful protest was earlier scheduled to hold on Sunday but was postponed after the Inspector General of Police refused to grant the party approval, citing late notification.

Despite a meeting with the ECSL, and other international bodies on Monday, the APC said there was no headway, and it will go ahead with its planned demonstration if their demands are not met.

We want to unequivocally state here that, if all the issues are not resolved in today’s 12pm meeting, be notified that we have now call out our supporters nation-wide to converge in designated areas to be communicated by the Party for a peaceful protest on Wednesday 21st  June, 2023. As it will be a peaceful procession, we urge your personnel to be peaceful with civilians and to provide us with the required protection.”, a statement by the party on Tuesday said.
