-Representative Cooper Alarms
Margibi County District #1 Representative, Roland Opee Cooper, has warned that the increasing level of mob violence in the country undermines justice and threatens the peace and security of the state.
Rep. Cooper said if violence could bring about development, by this time Liberia should have been on par with other countries around the globe. Cooper who spoke in Kakata, Margibi County warned Liberians to desist from taking the law into their own hands and follow the right path of justice because gone are the days of violence.
He said, “It is time to rebuild the country through collective efforts.” He made specific reference to recent mob violence which resulted into the burning the home of a Nigerian only identified as OJ in the VOA community along the highway leading to the Roberts International Airport.
“It is very important that we follow the due process of the law in order to promote civility and main peace and security for all in the territorial confines of the country,” Rep. Cooper noted.
He added the country is the only place that Liberians have and as such everyone should get involved in positive ventures to bring happiness to the people and the country.
Though the Ministry of Justice hasannounced that there were no foul play in the deaths of the children, OJ was accused by VOA community members for allegedly killing the two children who went missing a day earlier and were later discovered dead in the back of a blue sedan parked in his compound.
