Police Probing Attack On Health Workers In Lofa

By Korboi Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, August 2 (LINA) -The Liberia National Police detachment in Lofa County is investigating an attack on a health team in which two health workers sustained injuries and an ambulance belonging to the Lofa County Health Team was damaged.

The incident took place on July 27 in Popalahun, Kolahun District in Lofa County, where the health workers had gone to trace a suspected Ebola case, according to the Liberia News Agency.

The Chief Superintendent of the Liberia National Police Lofa County detachment, J. Tito Loli, who disclosed this to reporters in Voinjama, said the act is in total violation of the law and must therefore be investigated and perpetrators brought to justice to prevent a recurrence.

The police official assured that the LNP will continue to protect lives and properties in the county.

Meanwhile, Superintendent Loli has disclosed that criminals arrested during the joint security night patrols in July have been charged and are to appear in court shortly for prosecution.

He told reporters that since the police began the night patrols, the crime rate has significantly reduced in Lofa County. 

The local police called on the citizens, especially the youths, to cooperate with the joint security night operation to help prevent the continued attacks on peaceful citizens at night by criminals.
