Bomi Supt. Brown Warns Encroachers

By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Feb 1(LINA) – Bomi County Superintendent Samuel Brown has called on individuals encroaching on the land of the Forestry Training Institute (FTI) in Tubmanburg to desist immediately or face the full weight of the law.

Superintendent Brown said he has received numerous complaints from the FTI administration that some citizens are intentionally encroaching on the land of the institution without regard to ownership of the property.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Superintendent Brown told a news conference Thursday in Tubmanburg that at a meeting in August 2013, he urged those encroaching on the land to immediately stop.

He said it was agreed that those already on the land should remain where they are and not undertake further expansion of their structures.

The Superintendent said despite this warning, individuals continue to make further advances on the land, noting that this would now require the urgent intervention of the Land Commissioner of Bomi County.

Meanwhile, the Forestry Training Institute and its developmental partners are calling on the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Land, Mines and Energy to eject the encroachers from the land.

The institution is claiming 119 acres of land.
