Nimba County Superintendent Fong Zuagele has identified unresolved land disputes in the county as a major challenge that needs the intervention of government and the United Nations as the international peacekeeping force draws down.

Superintendent Zuagele said since the 14-year crisis, resolving boundary disputes and land ownership clashes has stirred commotion between local leaders and national government in several villages and towns in Nimba, especially Ganta, Sanniquellie and Bahn.

According to LINA, he noted that he wants all unresolved land conflicts in the county to be fully resolved before UNMIL troops leave the country.

Zuagele made the call in Sanniquellie recently when UN Special Representative of the Secretary General to Liberia, Karin Landgren, met with the county’s leadership to discuss progress made between UNMIL, county authorities and the people as UNMIL’s mandate comes to an end.

In a related development, the Joint Security of Nimba County has re-assured residents of its vigilance and commitment to protecting lives and property in the county as the United Nations troops end their peace keeping mission.

Making the commitment in Sanniquellie recently, police chief Morris Temah said Liberians need not panic over UNMIL draw down plan as the Liberian security forces have benefited from several international trainings that prepared them to preserve the peace and security of the country.

Temah also told the visiting UN Special Representative to the Secretary General to Liberia, Karin Landgren, that there was a need for increased immigration and police presence at border ports in the county.

He said Nimba being a large county with several inland border points with Guinea and Ivory Coast; a robust border patrol response mechanism needs to be put into place.

Temah said there was a need for vehicles, fuel, manpower and extension of police depots to the rural areas of the county to make border patrol efficient and effective.
