London Police have reportedly intervened after a section of the SLPP called Paopa (pro-Maada Bio activists) rudely interrupted a recent meeting organized by supporters of Kandeh Yumkella (KKY) in London.

Details of the fracas are still sketchy but pieces of information gathered by the Platinum International media network have suggested that the KKY team are up in arms to challenge Retired Brigadier Maada Bio’s dominance in SLPP politics.

It has also emerged that a cross section of the SLPP UK branch are desirous to see the backs of the Paopa dominated UK SLPP Executive.

The atmosphere was reportedly tense inside the meeting hall with members from both camps having heated verbal exchanges and scuffles (see photo). The development alerted the London metropolitan police.

It is not yet clear whether arrests were made.

"This is very shameful. The SLPP has now shown the world that they are not a serious opposition," says one angry caller from London.
