The reported burial arrangement underway of the late Marcus Soko, Director General of the Liberia Drugs Enforcement Agency (LDEA) who recently died of the deadly Coronavirus commonly call COVID-19 by members of his family, backed with some officials of the Liberia Government has created serious concern amongst Liberians and foreign residents.

OK FM this morning, May 8, 2020 on its morning show said it has gathered that funeral arrangement for the late LDEA boss was been made in order to give him a befitting burial, a situation that pondered many Liberians who spoke to the GNN complained that if this information is true it will have a serious health hazard for others.

When the Minister of Health, Dr. Wilhemina Jallah was contacted on the issue said she is not in the know of such information, and noted that her ministry will launch a serious investigation into said report, Dr. Jallah again used the occasion to call on the public to desist in such habit, noting that it is hazardous to bury a corps who died of the virus.

However, sources closed to the family denied that the remains of the late Soko is in the possession of the family, but said it is still in the possession of the Liberian Government awaiting what the sources called for a befitting burial.
