By: Joseph Titus Yekeryan

The Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA) Bong County Detachment has arrested nine persons allegedly linked to drugs trafficking in the County.

Four persons were earlier arrested with about 216 kilograms of marijuana in Totota, lower Bong County while in route to market the drugs; while the LDEA Officers arrested the additional five who are said to be linked to the trafficking.

Barely 24 hours after they were arrested, the LDEA forwarded them to the Liberia National Police Bong Detachment where they were later charged with drug trafficking and forwarded to court.

Addressing a news conference Sunday in Gbarnga, LDEA Director of Communications and Public Affairs Michael Jipply placed the street value of the 216 kilograms of marijuana to over L$200,000.

He said the LDEA has not slept on any issue of such in the County and they will continue to be strong in making sure that Bong County becomes an illegal substance-free County.

The LDEA Communications Boss at the same time condemned the recent alleged drug users and hostile community occupiers brutality melted against officers of the agency in the rubber factory community while raiding alleged drug dealers.

Officers of the LDEA had gone to ride the Community following a tipoff from some residents that their lives were in danger due to the alleged sale of marijuana but when they reached the community, some of those who are allegedly involved, resisted the officers from checking their business areas.

Jipply described the act as dishonest and said it has the tendency of creating chaos and undermining the fight against illegal narcotic substances across the county.

He also urged inhabitants to corporate with the LDEA officers to help fight track down drugs traffickers.

He said intensifying their strength at the various ports of entries as security officers is a national concern with a call to the central government for adequate budgetary support to help beef up their strength.
