Meanwhile, the MoD went on, all efforts are being made to re-arrest the escapee military officer, whiles also informing the public that Captain Kamara’s escape came a day after the Court Martial trial was adjourned on the request of the Defence Team.

It said both the Defence and the Prosecution would have made their final submissions if the trial had not been adjourned.

Meanwhile, the MoD/RSLAF would further like the public to know that the two other accused persons in the Court Martial trial, namely, Warrant Officer Class 1 Samuel Conteh and Warrant Officer Class 2 Abu Bakarr Jalloh are still remanded at the Custodial Centre.

More importantly, the MoD/RSLAF also inform the public that the twin partner of fugitive Captain Kamara coincidentally passed away at Makoth, seven miles off Yonibana near Mile 91 after a long illness.

The deceased, Michael Kamara, had first been admitted at the Chinese Infectious Diseases Prevention and Control Centre at the 34 Military Hospital before he was later moved to the village for native treatment, where he died.

“Following coincidences, the MoD/RSLAF has followed some misleading and inaccurate story purporting that Captain Kamara has died in detention. The writer is believed have deliberately mistaken the death of Michael Kamara for the fugitive Captain Kamara.” MoD/RSLAF noted.

Meanwhile, the MoD/RSLAF would further like the public to know that the remains of Michael Kamara was conveyed to Freetown last night by deceased’s wife, Captain Alice Koria Sesay, who is also a serving military officer.
