…As Police Abandon Station
Residents of the Township of West Point in Monrovia are said to be living in fear following recent attack on an isolation center which led to the escape of 17 Ebola suspects.
The residents condemned the vandalization of the Ebola isolation center recently established in the Township by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.
They claimed that the act was carried out by ‘misguided’ individuals who do not mean well for the township.
Ernest Tweh who spoke on behalf of the residents said stakeholders from various communities in the Township regret the act and called on the government not to neglect them in the wake of the attack on the Ebola isolation center.
He said the leadership of the Township has set up a committee to conduct an investigation and prosecute perpetrators.
Meanwhile, the residents have urged the government to continue normal operations in the Township, including the resumption of activities at the Zone Two Police depot which was closed in the wake of the August 16, 2014 unfortunate incident.
They said the closure of the depot has exposed the population of the Township to potential security threat leaving them in fear of contacting Ebola virus.
At the same time, the residents have alarmed about the presence of four dead bodies in the township.
They called on the government to immediately take delivery of the bodies so as to avoid health hazard in the area.
