of the opposition Sierra Leone People's Party ( SLPP). The threats,
posted in the Cocorioko forum were brought to the notice of Rev.Wilfred
Leeroy Kabs-Kanu , by our Forum Police. PLEASE READ THE
THREATENING POSTS :
The first threat came
under the following thread :
THE APC WILL GET THEIR WISH
Posted by Promise Keeper on March 14, 2009 at
"It seems APC is wishing for a second round of
war. They will soon get it if they continue on this path. The last time
they joined the AFRC/RUF coalition, we kicked their arses. We shall do
it again. That's why we have burnt down the car of the Resident Minister
Southern Province. Next in line is Musa Tarawallie. We will burn down
his house and car. "
"The army is already split because of APC
tribalism so if they think they have an army, they are in for a rude
awakening. Ernest Koroma may not finish his term if he continues to
exhibit such incompetence in governance. Again, APC shall get its wish
and this time the Southeast may just prevent the central government from
looting our resources as we provide 85% of the country's GDP. "
"Hey Kabs if war breaks out be rest assured we
will expel your ............ you are the enemies within. In fact I am
not sure they are safe. I may just send information so that your
........ is harrassed. You have taken our hospitality for granted. You
enjoy Southern hospitality but burn with hatred."

after you we kill you. "
