….Names Of Suspended Officers Concealed
On Saturday, the body of an unidentified man has been discovered at a police checkpoint at the ELWA junction but police authority has taken immediate action in connection with the death.
The Liberia National Police have suspended indefinitely seven of its officers in connection with the death of an unidentified man but the names of the suspended officers are yet to be disclosed since the incident occurred four days ago.
September 27, 2014, an unidentified man was found lying in a pool of blood at the ELWA junction near a police checkpoint. It is not known what led to the death of the man.
A press statement under the signature of Police Spokesman Sam Collins said the incident resulted into pandemonium and roadblock, which he said, interrupted the free flow of traffic.
Although the statement did not disclose the names of the seven officers, who the police claimed to have suspended indefinitely, but the Police said the suspension took effect as of Saturday, September 27, 2014.
The LNP indicated that it considers the situation seriously, adding that its Crimes Services Division (CSD) has launched an investigation into the matter to establish the cause of death.
The police disclosed that the body of the unidentified man has been deposited at a local funeral home as they investigate circumstances surrounding the incident.
