Sierra Leone: Police Officer Testifies in NPA Cable Theft

Assistant Chief of Defence Staff, Brigadier General Daniel Yapo Sesay - who was alleged to have been involved in a sexual scandal while serving as peacekeeper in Darfur, Sudan - has finally cleared the air over the allegation, noting that he had served the RSLAF for over 30 years with a good track record.

It could be recalled that early this year, there was a sexual scandal allegedly involving the Brigadier and one Lieutenant B.I. Moses, who were both attached to the peacekeeping mission in Darfur.

"I want to retire from the army and be remembered as a good man that did a good job in the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces," said Sesay adding that the lady (who made the allegation) only wanted to destroy his reputation in the army but did not succeed in her mission.

He said the matter has been concluded and that he has been exonerated, cautioned and cleared of the allegation.

Sesay said the matter was investigated by the Ombudsman and that there was no evidence to prove his guilt. He added he is still serving in the military while the lady has been dismissed.
