President Joseph Nyuma Boakai Wields The Axe At LDEA, Three Top Leaders Suspended

Monrovia, Liberia - The President of the Republic of Liberia, His Excellency Joseph N. Boakai, Sr., has, with immediate effect, suspended, without pay, pending investigation, the Director General, Mr. Abraham S. Kromah, Deputy Director General for Administration, Mr. Gbawou Kowou, and the Deputy Director General for Operations, Mr. Hassan Fadiga of the Liberian Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA)

The President has in the meantime ordered an investigation of the events occurring at the Agency on June 3, 2024. He said, "the acts of disorder and chaos that took place at the headquarters of the LDEA were unacceptable."

Such acts, the President continued, threaten public peace and undermine Government's fight against illicit drugs.

In the interim, the President has named Mr. Christopher Peters, as Officer in Charge (OIC) of the Agency pending the conclusion of the investigation. Peters is a well-trained security personnel and comes highly recommended.
