Joint Security Builds Self-help Checkpoint

By Korboi Gbelewala

VOINJAMA, Jan 17 (LINA) -Members of the Joint Security assigned at the John Town Security Checkpoint in Voinjama District have embarked on the construction of a security head office on a self-help basis.

Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization Commander, Lt. Mulbah Sumo told the Liberia News Agency recently in the county that the project estimated at L$85,000, is being implemented in collaboration with the citizens of John Town, Lofada and Duogomai towns in the area.

Lt. Sumo said the checkpoint project, which started in October 2013, will host offices of the Liberia National Police, Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization and Fire Service as well as a prison cell.

He said funds used for the project were generated by the security officers, while citizens in the area provided local building materials such as blocks, round poles and planks as well as food for the construction workers

Lt. Sumo said the project is part of the joint security officers’ efforts to help reduce the constraint government faces in finding office space for security officers assigned across the country.
