LIBERIA: As Anti-Corruption Boss Complains Of Threat To His Life, Police Assures Maximum Security
The Liberia National Police says it takes seriously the claims of insecurity raised by the head of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission, Cllr. Edwin Kla Martin and is acting accordingly to ensure his personal safety and wellbeing.
The Liberia National Police has offered to increase the security presence of its officers providing protection for the LACC Boss as he serves the country in the fight against graft.
Since the public disclosure by Cllr. Martin of threats against his life, the LNP has made efforts to beef up his security detail, but has not been successful due to his reported absence from his home, as the additional security officers were told.
“We have assigned and dispatched additional armed security to the home of the LACC Boss to ensure his personal security, but were told that Cllr Martin is out and upon return he will make such request to the LNP” Police Spokesman Moses Carter stated.
The LNP wants to assured all Public Officials that it takes seriously the security of every official of this government carrying out responsibilities that render them vulnerable and will not waiver in its duties of ensuring public safety and the collective security of all citizens.
The LNP leadership assures Cllr. Martin of its fullest priority in ensuring that his personal security is guaranteed.
