Liberian leader, President Ellen Johnson yesterday led an array of senior government officials signed a Book of Condolence at the Embassy of the Republic of Liberia accredited to sympathize with the people of Sierra Leone for death of over 400 persons which took place on the outskirts of Freetown as a result of the Monday mudslide.

As Liberians publicly extend sympathy to the Government and people of Sierra Leone for the untimely death of their citizens, it must be noted that Liberia must take all necessary precautions to avoid the reoccurrence of this ugly which took place in Liberia few years ago in western Liberia when 100 persons lost their lives in a landslide.

GNN has observed that this unwanted situation which took in Freetown may possibly occur in Liberia if the steps are not taken to avoid another landslide in Liberia, making specific references of residents behind the University of Liberia (Jallah Town), and the fifteen gate area where danger is hovering over residents of these areas.

GNN believes if the danger hovering over these residents to ask them to vacate these hazarderous areas, the possibility of encountering another ‘Landslide’ may likely lost their beloved citizens in the unforeseen situation.

Some Liberians who spoke to the GNN in an exclusive interview also made mentioned  of the danger being hanged over residents in these areas, making specific reference of the Jallah Town where a huge hill is being hovering over residents of the area.
