The Daily Observer has been told that there are fewer than 10 law enforcement officers in Vahun District, Lofa County.

Three Police and four Immigration (BIN) officers provide security for a population of 17,137 in the district comprising three clans.

Most of the inhabitants have the Sierra Leonean accent and are predominantly of the Mende-speaking tribe.

Defense Ministry Refutes ‘Incomplete Training’ Allegation

The Ministry of National Defense (MOD) has refuted a report in a local newspaper alleging that soldiers of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) have not been properly trained.

In a release signed by the Assistant Defense Minster for Public Affairs, David K. Dahn, and distributed yesterday to all media houses in Monrovia including the one that published the article, MOD strongly refuted the claim.
