Sierra Leone: police arrest national Hip-Hop star

Famous Sierra Leonean musician, Alhaji Amadou Bah, aka LAJ, is reportedly in police custody following his arrest on Saturday.

LAJ Da Boss or Boss Da Laj, known for his famous Song “Money Na Bank“, is among musicians in the country who were supporting then All People Congress presidential aspirant.

Supporters of LAJ are claiming his arrest could be connected to his public support for the APC.

With thousands of fans throughout the country, his arrest is being viewed as an attempt by the government to silence critics and to send a message to the others.

But other Sierra Leoneans are cautious over his arrest, stating the matter should be left in the hands of police.

“The president has warned he will not tolerate indiscipline,” said Augustine Musa.

Police are yet to explain why he was arrested.
