The attention of the Security Sector has been drawn to a viral post on social media which indicates the imminent threat of a terrorist attack on named hotels around the capital city of Freetown.
The Sector considers the post unofficial (since it is not indicating the source) and unnecessarily alarming. Meetings have indeed been held both within the Sector and with hotel proprietors on such matters, but they have only been to discuss the recent trend of terrorist related activity in the West African sub-region and to seek the institution of proactive measues to prevent similar attacks in Sierra Leone.
The Sector wishes to assure the public of doing all within its capacity to prevent such attacks or to adequately respond if and when they actually occur. Everyone is urged to go about his/her normal business.
National Security Coordinator.
