By Wellington G. Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent
SANNIQUELLIE, April 18 (LINA) - The newly-assigned Police Commander in Nimba County, Superintendent Augustine L. Warri, has urged citizens and residents to eschew mob violence for the speedy growth and development of the county.
The Nimba Police Chief noted that Nimbians need not engage in mob justice, violent protests or riots because such acts lead to the wanton destruction of lives and property, which, according to him, threaten infrastructural development.
In his remarks, when he officially took over the mantle of authority as Police Commander over the weekend, Warri called on citizens to join hands in discouraging such unwholesome practices, especially among the youth.
Comparing Nimba to other counties, Warri pointed out that Nimba is far ahead in terms of infrastructural and other developments, and as such, authorities of the county need to do all they can to ensure that the gains made so far are not stagnated as a result of unwholesome acts.
Speaking earlier, the outgoing police commander, Morris Temah, thanked the local authority and people of Nimba for the level of cooperation shown him and officers of the Liberia National Police for the two years he served in the county.
Temah has been promoted as Regional Commander for Nimba, Bong and Lofa counties.
