President Julius Maada Bio has issued a statement via his official X handle, addressing ongoing situation of unrest in Sierra Leone.
According to his publication and in alignment with earlier statements from the Ministry of Information and Civic Education, the incidents of the early hours of Sunday were as a result of an attempted armory break-in at Wilberforce barracks by unidentified persons.
These efforts were thwarted, he stated.
He cautioned against persons intending to destabilize activities of citizens, as he confirmed the "rooting out of remnants" by security forces.
He concluded by rallying unity and protection of democracy to ensure peace in the nation.
