The Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency confirmed the testing of herbal plants packaged in natural form at the Roberts International Airport contain a presence of methamphetamine.
As part of the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency’s initial scientific investigation on samples of these natural plants, the examination results revealed the presence of illicit drug, which is contained under the United Nations table/listing for illegal narcotic drugs, the statement said.
“With immediate effect, the LDEA is initiating a full-scale investigation into the importation and illegal possession of said narcotic drug and will involve all those that may have links directly or indirectly.
The public can be assured that our effort will leave no stone untouched as we endeavor to bring the perpetrator to book.
“In so doing, we will keep the public updated as progress is made on the investigation. We therefore called on members of the public to refrain from initiating any act of misinformation and disinformation that has the propensity to prejudice the ongoing investigation.”
