Fareed Ahmad’s Brother Says Police Still Trailing Him

Abdul Ahmad

At this time, a vigil is taking place to celebrate the life of the fallen barber, Fareed Ahmad and we’ll come to that. But tonight the Ahmad family believes they are under heavy police surveillance.  Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams is on record saying that they are not.  An incident this afternoon, however, confirms for Abdul Ahmad, that they are still being shadowed by members of law enforcement.  Shortly before two o’clock, the younger sibling set out from his barbershop at the corner of King Street and Amara Avenue to run some errands about the city when he realized that he was being tailed by an unknown vehicle.  When he reportedly took refuge inside the convenient store at the Freetown Road Service Station, he realized that two vehicles had been pursuing him.  When they left, a police mobile patrol appeared on the scene shortly thereafter and an officer is said to have been taking pictures of the Abdul and another of his brothers.  Just before news time, he recounted the incident with News Five.

 

Abdul Ahmad, Brother of Deceased

“Earlier today, I mean this afternoon, about 1:45, I left the barbershop to do some errands, pay some bills and coming down Bel-China Bridge, right at the corner, coming down that bridge and North Front Street, I saw this white in color pickup which resembles that of a Toyota Hilux, very close to the rear end of my vehicle.  So I drove off on Douglas Jones Street and this vehicle, I stopped at the corners of Cran Street and Douglas Jones Street, at the middle of that road, to make way for the vehicle that was behind my vehicle, whether it wanted to go left or right, you know.  That vehicle remained directly behind my vehicle so I quickly turned into Cran Street and that vehicle followed me and I sped off a bit.  I drove down that street very quickly and this vehicle followed me and at the corner of where Love FM’s studios are at this moment, at the corner of Cran Street and where Love FM studio is, I made a right in the direction of Freetown Road and I observed this grey in color SUV swerve in front of my vehicle from the direction of Stationery House.  I had no knowledge of this vehicle, I mean this vehicle wasn‘t even in my sight at the time and it swerved in front of me.  It swerved in front of my vehicle and the driver signaled for me to stop, you know.  I mean the way how it was all playing out obviously in fear of my life there is no way I would stop at that specific location, especially the way how things were playing out at the time.  So I raced towards Freetown and I went to Freetown Gas Station, I raced my way there and both vehicles following me and I made my way in front of the gas station store and then quickly made my way into that store. Couple minutes after, maybe two or three minutes after that incident, a blue police pickup truck came into that compound where it parked on the opposite side by the tire pump and one of [them], an individual from the police mobile exited the backseat of that truck and it appeared from where I was that he was putting in gas.  But just about when he was about to go back inside that vehicle, another member who was inside the backseat took a photo of the vehicle I was in, or it appeared that it was a photo because we saw the flash.”
