Asked if he knows why he was asked to report again, Camara said he was informed that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Yankuba Sonko was out of town. According to The Standard reporter though he has not been charged the indication is that he has been accused of false publication.

However, readers could recall that Camara’s arrest and subsequent detention at Bundung Police Station came on the heels of a story he published on the Friday edition of the Standard Newspaper. Camara is said to have written a story on human trafficking following an interview he purportedly had with Police spokesperson, ASP David Kujabi.
