The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) president Isha Johansen and other officials have been released from police custody after fulfilling their bail condition on Wednesday.

Johansen, as well as SLFA Vice President Brima Kamara and Secretary General Christopher Kamara, were arrested last week after they had been accused of corruption by the Anti-Corruption Committee (ACC).

Johansen had spent one night in police custody, while Brima Kamara was detained for two days and Christopher Kamara for a week in police custody, before they were released on bail.

The three officials were arrested after failing to attend a hearing scheduled on September 7 by the Anti-Corruption Committee. However, Johansen later denied any wrongdoing in a sworn testimony to the ACC.

The ACC claims that they are investigating the money received by the SLFA from , the Confederation of African Football (CAF), and the Sierra Leone government.
