The Superintendent of Maryland County in Southern Liberia has described as regrettable and unbearable, the wanton destruction of lives through “ritualistic killings” in the county.
According to Mr. Blebo Brown, other than concentrating on the reconstruction of the county after years of destruction, some Marylanders were bent on killing their compatriots for jobs, riches and influences to the detriment of the image of the county.
Superintendent Brown made the assertions recently at a local church in Harper City during a Thanksgiving Service organized by Christian and Muslim youth groups, as well as women organizations for God’s blessings and grace.
He called for unity amongst all Marylanders, noting that it is togetherness that “will develop the county and improve our lives.”
He appealed to Marylanders to forego the May 8-9, 2008 land crisis between the people of Wetchuken in Pleebo Sorduken District and those of Nmaklewein of Rock Town in Harper District, describing it as an isolated incident.
He, however, assured that the situation will be carefully and promptly addressed to improve long standing relationship among citizens of the two communities.
