According to the LNP through its official Spokesman, H. Moses Carter, so far, there is no causality of death, but only three persons went seriously unconscious and were rushed to the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Monrovia for treatment.
A joint security force of the LNP, LDEA and MCP on early Tuesday morning, November 23, 2021 launched a raid on criminal hideouts and arrested several of them-hardcore criminals
The raid, which turned very violent at the latter stage, created panic among marketers, pedestrians including students in the Duala-Kuwait area, with many of them running for their pressure lives.
During the bloody clash, the criminal gangs exchanged excessive gunfire with the crack joint security team. Three persons were seen lying on the ground in a pool of blood, thus leading to early media and social media reports that three persons had died in the process.
However, speaking at a news conference following the heartbreaking incident, the LNP spokesman asserted that as of press time, no one had died.
“Our quest to clamp down on criminal activities in the Duala- Kuwait area resulted to attack from the very criminals and our team replied through a propositional force. Three persons went unconscious in the process and were rushed to the JFK. Fourteen(14 )hard core criminals were arrested and 10 stores were also looted. An MCC officer sustained wound and our anti- robbery vehicle was also vandalized,” asserted Mr. Carter.
“Now, as we speak, calm has been restored on the Bushrod Island. A major deployment of officers has been done and we want to assure citizens of the police’s ability under the stewardship of Colonel Patrick Sudue to protect the citizens,” he stated.
According to him, the LNP will leave no stone will unturned in handling criminal activities.
“This festive season will be celebrated in peace and not pieces. We remain resolved to raiding and arresting hardcore criminals so as to bring relief to our country. We are confident that we are going to celebrate this festive season in peace,” he, among other things, added.
