The Chairman of the Sonewin Community in Electoral District # 8 in Montserrado County, Abel Glaysuah, has strongly alarmed over the current high criminal rate during night hours. Chairman Glaysuah further expressed the need for the immediate intervention of the Liberia National Police.
As a result of the huge criminal activities within the community, he claimed, fear and free movements in the district are hindered. Speaking Tuesday, June 28, 2016 to this paper in an interview, the Sonewin Community Chairman further noted that with the intervention of the LNP, the community would help to minimize some of the criminal activities.
“We no longer sleep during night hours as a result of fear; we need the police intervention,” he emphasized, also revealing that the issue of power theft, as well as drug abuse and trafficking, among others are contributing factors making the environment unsafe.
Mr. Glaysuah said since he took over as Chairman of the Sonewin Community, along with his co-workers, efforts are exerted to improve the sanitary condition – an intervention actually helping towards disease control.
He indicated that as United Nation Missions in Liberia completes its drawdown at the end of June 2016, citizens will now be looking up to the government for protection through the national security apparatus.
