The day was unbearable for local and dozens of international journalists who had come from far and near to cover the 51st Ordinary Session of Authority Heads of States and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) summit held at Farmington Hotel Palace when special bodyguards to the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu took complete charge of security at the 51st Ordinary Session which took place today at the Flemington Hotel Palace in Margibi County.
The security was so tight based on instruction from the Israeli security guards which compelled local journalists who left their respective homes as early as 3am and arrived at the Hotel had to wait in a very long queue denied them access to enter the conference hall.
Even after waiting for that long period of time, in the presence of local security from the Executive Protection Agency (EPA), the Special Security Service (SSS) and the Liberia National Police, journalists were endlessly told to wait while some foreign journalists were being ushered in, leaving local journalists to wait patiently without been given some attention.
However, with the intervention of officials of the Ministry of Information and the Deputy Director of Police for Operation, Col. Abraham Kromah local journalists who were accredited to cover the event were finally allow to enter the conference hall which was already filled with dozens of foreign journalists after going through thorough security check by the visiting Israeli security guards.
The Israeli security were also accompanied by security dogs that also helped in the process at the amaze of dozens of journalists and other dignitaries who were officially invited to the occasion.
