Sierra Leone Football President Aisha Johansen together with other two officials from the Sierra Leone soccer governing body were released on bail Thursday after being taken into police custody for failing to cooperate with an investigation into financial mismanagement.

In an interview with a local radio Patrick Sandy, who is the public relation officer for Anti-Corruption Commission, said that federation president together with vice president Brima Kamara and secretary general Chris Kamara were each released after a night in jail.

Information reaching our news desk say Federation officials declined to respond to inquiries from the commission, insisting that they are exempt from government jurisdiction and answer only to FIFA.

In response to the arrest the soccer boss has failed to comment deep about the issue by only posting a comment on her facebook page saying ” Thank you God and everyone for the support, am released”.

Johansen is one of only two women in the world to head a national football association. She owns a Sierra Leone Premiership outfit FC Johansen.
Johansen was elected president of the Sierra Leone Football Association unnoposed on 3 August 2013.
