The shooting of three law enforcement officers under circumstances where motives are yet to be explained has left the nation in doubt of its social cohesion. It is going to be a problem if the situation is prolonged without clear explanation as to who is involved and for what purpose.

Once this is known, it will be possible to begin the process of healing. It is important for steps taken for arrests not to be easily linked to the event until proper investigation is done. It would also be significant to quickly release any arrested person if investigation does not reveal any connection to the act.

At the moment the nation is focused on one piece of evidence, that is gathered and reported, that is, a person who had military training during the war in Casamance is in custody.

What does this information intend to convey? Obviously, the mind of the public is being shaped by such a piece of evidence. Political parties are beginning to dissociate themselves from what happened. Hence conspiracy theories abound. This is why a whole story is needed from the authorities for the mind f the nation to clear its doubt. Until then caution is required.

Foroyaa therefore hopes that the investigation will be thorough.
