Reports on social media have suggested that popular rapper LAJ has surrendered himself to the Sierra Leone Police after the confirmed prison break in Freetown. This our police source confirms is not true. LAJ was spotted in a viral video among other alleged released inmates. It is claimed that he has been freed from the Pademba Road Correctional Centre where he has been serving a jail term.


The SLAJ/NDI SuperNewsRoom fact checkers contacted the spokesperson of the Sierra Leone Police Assistant Commission of Police ACP Brima Kamara to ascertain if the celebrity handed himself over to the police after his release from prison. However, he could not confirm the claim when we contacted him.


We can confirm that LAJ is out of prison but has not surrendered himself to the police
