Must read

The Director General of the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency has called to stoppage the raiding of ghettos nationwide to better prepare for a full scale operation.

Raiding of ghettos will be done in a professional, tactical move and requires proper planning, Connell Abraham Kromah said Tuesday when he was installed as head of the agency.

“Gone are the days when drug dealers were arrested, investigated, and released.

“I am going to do my best to ensure that the President and the government succeed in the fight against drugs in Liberia.

“Do not carry out any raid until they are properly and professionally planned.”

Kromah said he has already received intelligence on several drug importers and dealers in the country and assured that the LDEA with go after them.

Illicit drugs trade and usage are now a non-billable crime allowing prosecutors to keep in jail suspects pending full trial.

Kromah appealled to the government and its development partners for logistics, including vehicles, telephones, body wearing cameras, communication radios, and to help relocate the LDEA to a better environment.
