“ELEVENTH-HOUR ARSON” AT MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT – PRESIDENT WEAH’S ADVISOR RAISES SUSPICIONS

Date:

MONROVIA, LIBERIA – Liberian firefighters are currently engaged in a fierce battle to contain a fire that broke out at the Ministry of Transport on Warren Street today. The incident evoked concerns and raised suspicions after Gabriel Nyenkan, a senior member of President George Weah’s CDC Government, claimed that it was an act of arson intended to damage the public infrastructure.

According to sources from the ministry, the fire originated in the basement, where license plates are printed and issued. The flames quickly spread, engulfing sections of the building before firefighters managed to reach the scene. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined, and the fire brigade is diligently investigating to establish its origin.

However, it was Nyenkan’s statement during a radio interview with OK FM that caught the attention of many. Describing the fire as an “eleventh-hour arson,” he expressed deep suspicion over the circumstances surrounding the incident. “This eleventh-hour arson is very suspicious,” Nyenkan emphasized during the interview.

President George Weah’s advisor did not provide further details about why he believed the fire to be a deliberate act or who might be behind it. However, his statement alludes to the possibility of political motivations or an attempt to disrupt the functioning of the Ministry of Transport, which plays a crucial role in ensuring smooth transportation and infrastructure development in Liberia.

Given the importance of the Ministry of Transport to Liberia’s development and the sensitive nature of the situation, there will undoubtedly be heightened scrutiny surrounding this incident, according to a junior official of the ministry who begged not to be named. Citizens and authorities alike await the conclusion of the investigation eagerly, hoping to shed light on the cause and motives behind the fire at the Ministry of Transport.
