Liberia: LNP Name Prime Suspects, Accomplices in Illegal Firearms Saga

Security sources claim that some of the discovered rifles include the M203 launcher devices, American-made M16, and AK47.

Police in Monrovia have named a man identified as Benjamin Baker as the prime suspect in the illegal importation of the Firearms that were seized at the Freeport of Monrovia on Wednesday.

The police, at a press conference held at its headquarters and addressed by its Inspector General, also named Barbara Debah, a resident of the Old Road community, and another lady only identified as Melvina as accomplices in the illegal firearms importation saga. All the suspects are currently undergoing investigations, Inspector Patrick Sudue said.

Meanwhile, hours following the discovery of Firearms and Ammunition, Liberia National Police said it would begin major inspection of vehicles across the country.

The LNP has at the same time vowed to remove unauthorized Security features from vehicles across the Country.
