LIBERIA: POLICE ARREST SUSPECT WHO VEHICLE PLOWED THROUGH UNITY PARTY SUPPORTERS, 3 KILLED, 18 INJURED

MONROVIA – In a significant development, the authorities of the Liberia National Police say they have made an arrest in connection with the incident where a vehicle plowed through Unity Party supporters on Snapper Hill. The tragic event occurred during a night of celebration at the party headquarters on Broad Street, turning the atmosphere of joy into one of sorrow and chaos. Lyndon Ponnie reports.

Police Inspector General, Patrick Sudue says, three people have been killed and over 18 injured in the act. After intensive investigation and diligent efforts, law enforcement agencies were able to identify and apprehend a suspect believed to be responsible for the heinous act.

The authorities will continue their work to gather evidence, conduct interviews, and build a comprehensive case against the suspect, top police sources have said.

While this arrest marks a significant step forward in the investigation, it is important to remember that the legal process will have to take place, and the suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The authorities will ensure a thorough investigation to uncover all the facts surrounding the incident.

Unity Party, the winner of Liberia’s Presidential elections and the nation as a whole will continue to support one another during this trying time, said an official of the party. It is crucial to provide support to the affected families and offer comfort to those who are grieving. The healing process will require time, understanding, and unity said the official who preferred not to be named.

As more details emerge it is essential to maintain respect for the privacy and dignity of the victims and their families. The authorities will work diligently to bring about justice and hold the responsible party accountable for their actions, said a police source.
