The Sierra Leone Police is committed to giving security support to institutions and individuals in Sierra Leone. In order to create conducive environment for foreign direct investment in the country, the Inspector General of Police – Dr. Ambrose Michael Sovula – has intensified effort to support investors with adequate security when they travel into the country to begin business. Over the years, the management of the police had shown great concern over the security issues faced by business people and had been strategizing lasting remedies to those isolated incidences.
On Friday 16th July, 2021, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and some members of his Executive Management Board together with the Deputy Minister of Information and Communication – Solomon Jamiru Esq. – met with the management of Odhav Multi Industries (SL) Limited in the office of the IGP at Police Headquarters, George Street, Freetown to discuss issues of security for the company as they were about to fully commence their operations.
In his engagement with the IGP, the managing Director of Odhav Multi Industries (SL) Limited – Nikhil Chandra – requested for some police personnel to protect his Chief Executive Officer and the operation site. The IGP, in his response to him, recognized that since their operation in Sierra Leone was legal, he would have no problem in giving the company its much needed adequate security.
