Recently the GNN in its facts finding visited the Township to verify reports on the illegal seizure of hundreds of acres of land by Blama Wright, and further ordering dozens of thugs to beat on people who reject his false ownership, such report during GNN investigation was confirmed by the citizens.

Speaking to our staff in the township recently, Pastor Dennis along with dozens of elders who are also direct victims of the illegal sale of land in the township craved the urgent attention of the central government through the Ministry of Justice, and the Liberia Land Authority (LLA) to bring those involve to book.
