Protestors in Pleebo, Maryland County have reportedly set ablaze the residence of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dr. Bhofal Chambers in demand of justice for the brutal murder of a motorcycle by unknown individual.

Hundreds of protestors including women and motorcyclists, according to our Correspondent stormed the residence of Dr. Chambers who is currently in Monrovia and set his house ablaze under the pretext that they are angry over the murder of their colleague with government intervention to bring the alleged perpetrator to justice.

Early this week officers of the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) arrived in the county to calm the situation being caused by the protestors who are said to be their numbers.

In a related development, the protesters in their bid for justice also burst into the Harper Central prison and the Pleebo Police station, with 91 prisoners including the perpetrator who reportedly murdered the motorcyclist escaping detention.
