Congo Cross police Sunday 15th discovered the pistol reportedly owned by Alhaji Amadu Bah aka LAJ; one of police alleged murder suspects.
Police source say however that the pistol was concealed beneath the root of a tree at the Aberdeen/Lumley Beach.
Shortly after LAJ and two others arrest vis-à-vis for alleged murder of two persons Saturday 14th at 0500 hours, a combined team of plain clothes as well as uniformed police officers cordoned off the precincts of Aberdeen/Lumley beach to search for, and get information relevant to their inquiry.
It is disclosed that Congo Cross police was informed of the concealment of the alleged pistol of LAJ, and without any delay dashed to the beach hence the retrieving of it underneath a tree.
Just when the police picked up the problem pistol, all arrested – LAJ, Foday Allieu alias Big Fish, and Alpha Mattia (one of Big Fish’s thugs) – were promptly conveyed to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) headquarters in Freetown where they are now helping the police in their investigations.
Reports are that postmortems have been conducted on the dead individuals, but reports are yet pending.
It could be recalled that there have been contention from among groups that refer to themselves as owners of respective colours (red flag, blue flag etc).
This, in the recent past, has seen LAJ (founder of the Red Flag Movement ‘RFM’ and other rivalry flag movements inflicting untold brutalities from among themselves.
Saturday 14th experienced disagreement between LAJ’s Red Flag Movement on the one side and Big Fish on the other side.
The brutal meeting later ended into a clash thus resulting in the death of a pedestrian and one of the Big Fish’s cabalists.
Even though the police are yet to make any public statement, sources say the discovered pistol is similar to those formerly supplied to police officers.
LAJ, Big Fish, and Alpha Mattia are with the police helping in their investigations.
