February 11, 2015 By Ibrahim Tarawallie

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Monday (February 9) intercepted and impounded 105 bags of bulgur, 68 bags of cornflower, and 30 cartons of vegetable oil, labeled “not for sale”, in Makeni, according to a release issued by the commission.

The relief items were reportedly meant for Ebola victims in the district, which is one of the worst affected in the country.

“The 30 cartons of refined vegetable oil were intercepted in a commercial minivan with registration number AGR-236 along the Kabala Highway at Timbo in Makeni,” the ACC release said. “ACC investigation leads pointed to a residence at ABB Line, Talent Town, Makeni, where 105 bags of bulgur and 68 bags of cornflower were latterly discovered.”

According to the release, two suspects – Isatu Conteh and Pa Mohamed Koroma – have been arrested and are assisting the anti-graft investigators with the investigation.
