Caucus Condemns Violence In Nimba

Winnie T. Dixon, Intern

MONROVIA, July 11 (LINA) -The Nimba Legislative Caucus has condemned the recent “unconstitutional violent actions” by Nimbians, which disrupted normal working activities at the ArcelorMittal mines in the county.

The caucus said, while it is true that there were pressing issues needing redress, the violence was not in place and did not represent the people of the county.

Making the disclosure at a well-attended press conference on Thursday, the co-chair of the Caucus, Richard M. Tingban, said though the citizens were very harsh in their approach, the government needs to adhere to the citizens’ plight and address them in a timely faction.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the press conference was attended by eight of Nimba’s 11 lawmakers, while one was said to be sick and the others unreachable.

At the same time, Nimba County District Two Representative, Prince Tokpah, has clarified speculations that he influenced the rioting process in thecCounty.

He explained that he went to the county on approval of the Caucus to appeal to the citizens to remain calm and peaceful, while they await necessary actions in line with their grievances.
