By Patrick N. Mensah, Maryland County.

Fishtown, River County: Officers of the Liberia Drugs Enforcement Agency (LDEA) in River Gee County have arrested a 36-year-old man identified as Chris Barley for being in possession of 45 plates of cocaine in Gbeapo Kanweken, River Gee County.

Barley, a Liberian was arrested at his residence in Gbeapo Kanweken, River Gee County on Tuesday, May 22, 2023, following a tipoff by community dwellers.

Our correspondent suspect Barley is currently undergoing preliminary investigation in Fish Town, River Gee County.

He has, however, informed investigators that the drugs are owned by a businessman but failed to disclose the name and contact of the said businessman.

The arrest of Barley days after the Government lost a US$100 million worth of drugs case has left Liberians calling on the National Legislatures to pass a stronger law that will halt the importation of harmful narcotic substances in the country.

Mr. Abu Diallo, CSO head of River Gee County stressed that such drugs are damaging the future of Liberian children.

He maintained that if the Government of Liberia fail in the fight against drugs or to revisit the law on drugs, the future generations of Liberia will absolutely be damaged before 2030.
