Nimba Community Radio Stations Lift Blackout On Senator Johnson
By Wellington G. Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUIELLIE, November 11 (LINA) - Nimba Community Radio Association (NICORA) has lifted the blackout it imposed on Senator Prince Yormie Johnson and his associates in June this year.

NICORA officially lifted its blackout on Senator Johnson on Saturday, November 8, in Saclepea, Central Nimba.

In early June, NICORA imposed a media blackout on the Senator for the flogging of journalist Franklin Doloquee, a correspondent of state-radio LBS, allegedly by supporters of the Senator.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Sanniquellie Monday, NICORA chairman said the group lifted the blackout after Senator Johnson on November 8 restituted a camera, digital recorder and L$4,000 to the journalist as demanded by NICORA.

When contacted, Senator Johnson, in a mobile phone interview, said he regrets the incident at the Voice of Gompa in Ganta and apologized, adding, “My decision is to ensure that peace reigns in the county."
