Segbwema Clamors For Regional Police Headquarters


Sierra Leone IG Francis Munu


Segbwema MP Robin Fallay

Freetown — Residents of Segbwema town, Jaluahun chiefdom in the Kailahun district have called on the Inspector-General of police to take back the divisional police headquarters to the township. At present, Segbwema town only boasts of a police station; it used to host the police headquarters in the district but the 11-year civil war, among other things, saw it being transferred to Daru.
During a meeting with Inspector-General Francis Munu at the Segbwema community centre, Paramount Chief James Sheriff Coker Jajua appealed to the police chief to consider relocating the headquarters back to Segbwema town from Daru.
"Segbwema used to house the divisional police headquarters in the district, we want you Sir to help us have it back," PC Jajua appealed. He further pleaded with the police boss to consider rehabilitating the police barracks in the area, which he said was not in good shape.
PC Jajua thanked the IG for visiting his chiefdom, noting that his people were very much happy when they hard on the radio about his appointment as head of the SLP. "I appreciate so much what you did for my people during your time here working for the SLP. You helped greatly in protecting lives and property in the chiefdom. We will continue to offer prayers for you so that you can succeed in your new position," the traditional ruler stated.
He assured IG Munu that they would always be grateful to him for what he did for the chiefdom, while urging him to do more in ensuring maximum security for the whole country.
Responding, IG Munu said the issue of relocating the divisional police headquarters back to Segbwema was very much critical but promised to look into it. "Your concerns will be given consideration. The issue of relocating the police headquarters to Segbwema from Daru is very much critical," he said.
He thanked the people and the local authorities for their warm reception and assured them of the provision of maximum security for the entire township.
"I am very much grateful to you. I always have you in my mind in anything I do. Be rest assured that I will give you the attention you deserve," the police boss promised.
Statement was also made by the SLPP member of parliament representing Constituency 07, Hon. Robin Faley.
