Staff Sergeant Alhaji Koroma, who serves in the 11 Battalion of the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF), has admitted to committing a civil offense and mutiny. 


During the court proceedings, he passionately requested mercy from the court and implored the President to pardon him. Sergeant Koroma explained that he was coerced by certain individuals to carry out the acts in question. 


Sergeant Koroma's emotional plea has added a compelling dimension to the ongoing legal proceedings, as the court grapples with the complexities of the case. His request for clemency and his assertion of being manipulated by external forces are expected to be pivotal points for consideration as the trial unfolds. 


This high-profile court martial has garnered significant public attention, and the outcome of Sergeant Koroma's plea will undoubtedly be closely followed in the coming days.
