Spriggs Field management to arrest intruders

The management of the James Spriggs Payne Airfield in Sinkor, Monrovia has warned residents of Old Road and Lakpazee communities to desist from crossing the airfield. The management threatened to arrest and prosecute anyone caught crossing or trespassing the airstrip.

The manager of Spriggs Field Emmanuel Tarpeh gave the warning Monday when he appeared along with his public relations director on the Bomber Show hosted live by the Liberia Broadcasting System. He noted that residents were still using the premises as a major crossing route despite several warnings by management, which is very dangerous as its possess serious threat to the lives of the residents themselves.

Mr. Tarpeh also expressed dismay over the constant dumping of garbage onto the airfield by residents, something he described as unfortunate. He said night club goers from Samoa Bar and other entertainment centers gather on the runway during night time to drink and after intoxication, they burst bottles on the tarmac.
