On Sunday 12th February 2017 Mr. Zaioux Saio Sesay a 60 years old private contractor was shot dead by two unknown  gun men at about 2 :00 am.


According to his wife Kama Sesay who witnessed the incident, her husband got up around that time to prepare to travel to Masiaka where he is building a house for one of his clients. She furthered that within a short period she heard her husband shouting outside and then she decided to check what was happening.

She then saw her husband fighting with somebody who had a mask on his face, and then she decided to help her husband in the fight, not realizing that one of the attackers was outside with a gun. The gunman fired one shot telling her to stop and she immediately ran outside calling on neighbors to come and help.

 

She then said, she heard another gunshot and then heard her husband saying they have killed me. Neighbours came to the scene but the attackers had already fled from the scene.

 

She and some of neighbours then ran to the Operation Support Division (OSD) Lodge at King Hamman road and reported the matter. The OSD officers then went to the crime scene collected the dead body and took it to the mortuary for autopsy. 

 

Presently officers from the Operation Support Division are deployed at the resident of the late man whilst the Criminal Investigation Division is investigating the matter.

 

According to information gathered by this writer, in 2007 this same family was attacked by four men armed with cutlasses and axe, they injured the late man and his wife and took away valuable items including laptops, mobile phones and money.

 

However at that time, a young girl living in the house was able to identify one of the attackers as they were not disguised.

 

The matter was reported to the police who arrested the one that was identified by the young girl, he in turn called the other attackers and the police then charged the matter to court. They were subsequently found guilty and sentenced to 30 years in prisonment, but only served 3 years and were freed after appeal at the High Court.
