WANTED: Shemar "Abdue" Wilson

WANTED: Shemar “Abdue” Wilson

Police on Friday issued a wanted bulletin for 20-year old man in connection with the discovery of a grenade near the vehicle that is usually driven by the publisher of Kaieteur News, Glenn Lall.

He is Shemar Wilson called ‘Abdue’. Police said they want to question him in relation to  ‘attempting to cause explosion’ which occurred on June 6, 2016, at Saffon Street, Charlestown, Georgetown.

He is 20-years old, of African descent and his last known addresses are 43 North Sophia, Georgetown and 51 West La Penitence, Georgetown.

The Guyana Police Force assured that “all information will be treated with the strictest confidence.”

Investigators asked that anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of Shemar Wilson is asked to contact the police on telephone numbers 225-6411, 225-227, 225-8196, 227-1149, 226-7065, 911 or the nearest police station.

One day after the incident, police arrested six persons including the owner of the car who had initially claimed that her car had been hijacked.

Police later sought a High Court extension to continue detaining them beyond the initial 72 hour period to facilitate ongoing investigations.

The live fragmentation grenade was found near the right front wheel of Lall’s vehicle while staff members were nearby at a wake for late Kaieteur News Assistant Editor, Dale Andrews. The pin was detached from the device but it did not explode, apparently due to poor storage.

    This one needs tons of sunlight to help us see who and what and why. The name does not ring a bell in local political or criminal circles, so…was he hired by someone else because he is expendable?

    I daresay that it would be useful to apply Guyanese logic here, to figure this report…given the plight…make that blight, in the social challenges and culture of Guyana.. Shemar Persaud is a product of Guyana, born in the corrupted period of Dr Jagan and that Bharat boy…he grew up in a corrupted society which produced at that period,a drug economy, and the audits that are now revealing all the thievery and corruption, also of that period …I forgot to mention the the other hoodlums in the PPP…notwithstanding the Freedom fighters (RIP) and gyam fyah mode of that period,which sent the fear of the devil to 50% of Guyanese…Shemar Persaud paid no attention to the gyam fyah mode in that period….but seemingly graduated to the level of a terrorist..because of the PPP and Dr Jagan’ …..we need to pin that terrorist thingy on the Bha Rat ( common in SN blogs) also…so here we are…the ducks will continue to quack until light shines….sorry…rooster …forget these comments…lets say a prayer…I will take a flashlight to look at this issue again tonight….
