Lawmaker Concerned About Increase In Armed Robbery 

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, September 4 (LINA) -Lofa County Representative Moses Kollie has expressed concern about the increase in armed robbery in Monrovia and its environs since the imposition of the curfew.

Kollie observed that armed robbers were breaking into the homes and terrorizing residents almost every night, especially those who live in the suburbs of Monrovia.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), the Lofa County lawmaker made the observation Thursday during the 2nd Day Sitting of the Extraordinary Session of the House of Representatives at the Capitol Building in Monrovia.

He suggested that Plenary invites the heads of relevant security agencies in the country, particularly the Liberia National Police, to brief the House as to what it is doing to arrest the unwholesome act.

Kollie noted that when briefed by the security heads, the House could propose to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for government to lift the curfew since criminals are using it as a conduit to make life miserable for residents of affected areas.

Montserrado County District #4 Representative, Henry Fahnbulleh agreed with Representative Kollie that armed robbery is on the increase in Monrovia and its environs.

Fahnbulleh disclosed that police authorities will meet with residents of his district this weekend to discuss the issue.

Responding to the complaint, Deputy Speaker and Presiding Officer, Hans Barchue, said Plenary will meet to thoroughly discuss the issue before coming up with a definite position.
