Cape Mount DEA Arrests “Drug Transporting” Canoe
By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, February 15 (LINA) - The Grand Cape Mount County detachment of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has arrested a canoe allegedly being used to transport narcotic drugs from Sierra Leone into Liberia.

This was disclosed by the DEA County Commander Octavius Manning in an interview with the Liberia News Agency recently at his Bo-Waterside office at the weekend.

The Mano River serves as a boundary between Liberia and Sierra Leone, and canoes are the mode of transport for residents of communities that straddle the river.

Manning explained that an unidentified man who came with the canoe from the Sierra Leonean side of the border absconded upon arrival on the Liberian side of the river.

Meanwhile, the DEA commander is encouraging citizens along the border to assist national security by passing on information about the movement of canoes in the area in the interest of the state.

Commander Manning said canoes are one of the means of importing drugs into the country by both Liberians and Sierra Leoneans.
