Bombali District Human Rights Committee demands for #SierraLeone Government of President Julius Maada Bio to return ALL corpses of those massacred at Makeni in July. They also condemn continued brutal arrests of Makeni residents including over a so-called ‘crime’ of printing MAKENI LIVES MATTER on T-shirts.
Bombali is also condemning a seeming intimidation of Makeni City residents with armed men currently deployed to parade the streets of Makeni displaying heavy weapons in “unprovoked and unwarranted show of force” as such is tantamount to provoking civil populace who are in mourning.
Bombali is also calling on humanitarian organizations to provide counselling to “heavily traumatized families of those that were killed”.
They also want the release or charging to court of all those arrested in connection with events around the said massacre of Makeni residents.
