Mr Kanteh left Brikama for Kanifing to see his two brother who he claimed had been stabbed while exercising their ‘right’.

The senior officer told reporters at Kanifing hospital he was at work when he received the news.

“I have about 100 men under me as I speak, I left them because my brother is stabbed,” Mr Kanteh said.

He then told reporters his brothers were out lawfully to ‘exercise their constitutional right’.
