Sierra Leone News : Former Vice-President Sam-Sumana was not removed for Seeking Asylum
A very serious misconception from a segment of the public is that the former Vice President Alhaji Sam Sumana was relieved off duties for attempting to seek asylum in a foreign embassy. This is totally untrue but is borne out of deliberately fallacious international and local reports filed by unscrupulous Sierra Leone journalists to the world. At no point in time has President Koroma ever stated that he relieved his Vice-President of his duties because the VP went to seek asylum.
