Sierra Leone FA boss Isha Johansen released from detention

The President of the SLFA Isha Johansen was released on bail from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on Thursday night after a night in detention.

Johansen’s arrest and detention came just after the Sierra Leone Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) started Operation Thunderbolt, which is aimed at intensifying their fight against corruption.

The Commission also stated that they have been investigating the management of funds received by the SLFA since February.

Several reports in Freetown have confirmed that the other two SLFA officials Brima Mazola Kamara (Vice President) and Christopher Kamara (Secretary General) are still in custody because they are yet to meet their bail conditions.

A Fifa spokesperson told footballsierraleone.net on Wednesday that they are yet to receive any official confirmation, however, they are monitoring the situation.

“At the time of writing, we haven’t received any official information we are therefore not in a position to comment. We will monitor the Situation.”

The country’s Football FA is yet to release any statement on the present development.

According to several reports, earlier, armed police and officials from the Anti-Corruption commission raided the football FA’s secretariat and took away documents of interest to help their ongoing investigations.
