APC's National Secretary General Lawyer Lansana Dumbuya Invited by CID

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has invited Lawyer Lansana Dumbuya, who is the National Secretary General of the All People’s Congress Party (APC), in relation to a press statement made by the party. The statement was in relation to ongoing legal proceedings against its former Chairman, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma. 

The legal proceedings against Dr. Koroma are related to the unrest that occurred on 26 November 2023, which the government has alleged was a coup attempt involving former security personnel of Dr. Koroma. 

In the press statement, Lawyer Dumbuya expressed his support for Dr. Koroma and insisted on his innocence. He also stated that recent actions against some of the party’s supporters, including the former Chairman, were a political witch-hunt. 

Lawyer Dumbuya confirmed in a tweet today that he has been invited by the CID in connection with the press statement. As per sources, the Secretary General has agreed to cooperate with the CID and will be appearing before the department in the near future.

However, a date for his appearance has not yet been set, as the invitation was open-ended.
