A secret recording of a conversation between Minister Musa Tarawally and SLPP District Chairman Dixon Rogers is amongst reasons for a fight last night at the Pujehun Wanjei Radio station. The incident saw Police officers moving to the station to separate the factions.
The problem first commence the night before (Tuesday night) when Station Manager Melvin Rogers went over the air to damn rumour mongers accusing Dixon Rogers of being an APC mole. The persons Melvin Rogers damned as being against Dixon Rogers is believed to have included the Pujehun District Local Council Chairman Saddiq Sillah.
The problem was compounded last night of April 11th 2012 at around 11pm when Saddiq Sillah stormed the station to allegedly interrupt a program hosted by Melvin Rogers on which Sillah was again being disparaged. Earlier, during the programme, the Chairman of the Board and local Justice of the Peace, Pa James M. D. Samba was asked out of the station in mid-air by Melvin Rogers.
Musa: SLPP says you are a Very Bad Boy! Are you?
In the process of heated exchanges, slaps were exchanged between the raging SLPP members and armed police officers had to rush in to separate the two SLPP factions and restore peace.
Melvin Rogers was in protective police custody last night for his own safety. He alleges he was seriously beaten up and his clothes torn. However, Saddiq Sillah claims it was Melvin Rogers who first attacked him and he was merely on a self defence of himself.
More details soon.
