Social media went wide late Tuesday evening after report that the head of Council of Patriots, Mr. Costa was arrested in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Costa posted “Don’t worry. I will be okay. The Sierra Leone authorities are being very professional and nice to me. I posted this myself because they let me use my phone. It will be resolved”. According to the report, he was arrested in Freetown, trying to book an SN Brussels flight out of the region just hours after the Liberia Immigration Service said he would be declared fugitive if he fails to appear before it on Wednesday morning for the ongoing investigation into his alleged use of a forged Lassiez Passer to enter Liberia in December of last year.
