The Liberia National Police (LNP) has opened a book of condolence for fallen Deputy Commissioner of Police Alexander Saye, who recently died while on duty in Grand Gedeh county.
The death account of Saye is still uncertain.
Singing the book of condolence on Tuesday, January 5, LNP Inspector General Patrick Sudue described DCP Saye as a dutiful and committed officer.
He said the death of DCP Saye has created a big vacuum in the police that will take years to be filled.
“Our hearts are heavy seeing one of our committed officers dying, but again we can’t question God, his death was so unexpected and untimely,” IG Sudue said.
According to him, DCP Saye was a dedicated officer who devoted his time and energy to bring integrity to the force.
He furthered that the late officer had a burning desire for policing, and his passion to protect and save lives is worth emulating.
In a mournful expression, the police boss however assured families of the late officer that LNP will continue to support them in these trying times.
Speaking briefly, a member of the family called on the police to ensure that justice is served and the perpetrators face the full weight of the law.
Mulbah Saye said circumstances leading to the death of their brother should be investigated and be made known to the public.
“The way in which he died is glaring, he was killed and we don’t want it to go just like that, we want justice for our brother,” Saye said.
According to him, the family will continue to grief if justice is not served well in the death of their fallen brother.
The family also wants the suspects to be taken from the Grand Zedeh correction palace to either Grand Bassa or Montserrado for the trial to prevent any political interference.
