MARYLAND COUNTY – Maryland County Superintendent George Prowd has revealed that a team of investigators has arrived in Maryland County to help in determining the cause of deaths of at least two people, Anthony Tiaka (an internship student at Tubman University) and little Levi Koffa (an eight-year-old boy) – found dead Sunday, July 3rd and Wednesday, July 20, respectively.
Speaking during a press briefing Wednesday, July 27, the Superintendent disclosed that security reinforcement from the Liberia National Police Support PSU also arrived in the county.
He said the arrival of the Police Support Unit was in response to calls on the government to help beef up security in the county.
The Superintendent called on all Marylanders to cooperate with the investigators to help find out if there was any foul play in the deaths of the two.
He hopes the arrival of the investigators will end the continued mysterious deaths which have plagued the county over the years.
In another development, Superintendent Prowd disclosed that Marylanders will hold a mass meeting on August 3, 2022, to discuss the issue of the lone ferry over the Cavalla River.
The Cavalla Rubber Company (CRC) and the Maryland Oil Palm Plantation (MOPP) continued to monopolize the ferry; which brewed tension in the region.
The lack of ferry is causing shortages of basic commodities in the South Eastern region which relies heavily on the Ivory Coast for 90% of its goods, especially during the rainy season.
The ferry is used to convey goods between Liberia and Ivory Coast.
