Bong Officials Warn Against Land Encroachment

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, January 17 (LINA) – Two officials of Bong County have warned against the buying, selling and construction on the land occupied by the Gbarnga Regional and Security Hub on Lofa Road in the suburb of Gbarnga City.

County Attorney Cornelius Wennah warned that the stay order imposed in December last year on the disputed 150 acres of land by the Supreme Court remains effective until final judgment into the matter.

The land in question is being claimed by the Nimely family, with one Nathaniel Tucker posing as administrator and selling parcels of the land.

Also speaking on the matter, Bong County Land Commissioner C. Fahnlon King told the Liberia News Agency that the land, which is being occupied by the Gbarnga Regional and Security Hub, is government-owned.

He told LINA Friday that since 2010, Tucker and the Nimely family have failed to establish legitimate ownership of the land but are engaged in indiscriminate sale of the land.

In response to a complaint filed by the leadership of Bong County to the Supreme Court in December last year, Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh instructed the re-enforcement of a stay order on activities on the land pending final ruling by the Supreme Court.

The Government of Liberia has constructed a US$4 million Regional and Security Hub on the land in question.
