SANNIQUELLIE, June 1 (LINA) - The Joint Security of Nimba County has re-assured residents of its vigilance and commitment to protecting lives and property in the county as the United Nations troops end their peace keeping mission.
Making the commitment in Sanniquellie recently, police chief Morris Temah said Liberians need not panic over UNMIL draw down plan as the Liberian security forces have benefited from several international trainings that prepared them to preserve the peace and security of the country.
Temah also told the visiting U.N. Special Representative to the Secretary General to Liberia, Karin Landgren, that there was a need for increased immigration and police presence at border ports in the county.
He said Nimba being a large county with several in-land border points with Guinea and Ivory Coast, a robust border patrol response mechanism needs to be put into place.
Temah said there was a need for vehicles, fuel, manpower and extension of police depots to the rural areas of the county to make border patrol efficient and effective.
