Armed Riot Police Officers and Officers in plain clothes have surrounded the office of SLPP Presidential Candidate Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio at Goderich, Bah Junction with a purported search warrant for the office of the SLPP Presidential Candidate.

The SLPP Presidential Candidate is presently at the office in Goderich where he is monitoring reports on the ongoing voting across the country.

The Police Officers forcefully entered the compound of the Office of the SLPP Presidential Candidate and police officers in riot gears have now surrounded the office where Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio is presently at.

It is perfectly conceivable that the police officers are acting on others from above and it is politically motivated.

The APC knows they are losing the elections and this latest attempt to intimidate Brigadier Julius Maada Bio at his office is only to undermine the peace and security of the nation. We call on the attention of all international elections observers to this latest ugly development on polling day.

Despite this latest intimidation attempt on Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio, we call on all SLPP members, supporters and Party Agents to stay focused and be very vigilant at polling stations across the country so that the voices of the people of Sierra Leone will be heard loudly through the ballot box.
