Bah reveals official links

Breaking his silence, Ibrahim Bah denies he has blood on his hands and claims to have set up many ventures and worked closely with ministers

In an attempt to clear his name, former warlord Ibrahim Bah has been talking to Africa Confidential by telephone from a secret location. He has contradicted the government’s claim that it was not aware of his presence in Sierra Leone by producing a letter from a senior All People’s Congress (APC) official inviting him into the country in late 2007.
