The Inspector General of Police (IGP), William Fayia Sellu, in an engagement with cross section of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) National Executives, has assured of his fullest support to the association.

Responding to concern raised over the safety of Journalists in performing their duties to the SLAJ executives, IGP Sellu stated that he has a long-standing experience working with the fourth estate and has benefits a lot from them especially while he was serving as the Chief Security to late President Kabba.

Police and Journalists, he said are working towards a common goal which is public safety and therefore should not be seeing at draw-dagger.

His administration he said would create an atmosphere where both institutions will work side by side in the interest of the public.

He recalled initiating a day workshop where members of both institutions will explain their jobs description for a better understanding to avoid clash especially during the electioneering period.

He also assured of not deviating from the SLAJ MOU with the security sector on the safety of Journalists, signed by his predecessor.

He therefore appreciated the visit of the SLAJ executives and asked that they always count on him for support.

President of SLAJ, Ahmed Sahid Nasralla earlier informed the Inspector General of Police (IGP) that their visit was to discuss pertinent issues bordering on the relationship with the SLP, safety of Journalists and potential training for Journalists on security reportage especially for the 2023 elections.
