‘If you stone us we will teargas you,’ Police IG talks tough ahead of Dec 8 election; begins inquest in death of two LRA employees

Police Inspector General, Col. Patrick Sudue took a rather dramatic turn at Monday’s press conference to speak to the unfortunate death of two LRA employees.

While an inquest is ongoing with family, police and other state actors at St. Moses Funeral Parlour as announced by the IG Monday, he was quick to announce that the police is monitoring the violent trend the December poll is taking.

‘Next week we will begin making some rounds on radios, at hatai shops and communities to speak to our people about a violent free election,’ he stated.

He asked politicians to stay away from creating situations and making statements that have the propensity to create chaos.

The IG said the police will not sit and the state run into chaos as they will move in where necessary and if they are stoned they will tear gas.

The Police IG however used the press conference to call on every Liberian with sensitive information regarding the death of Albert Peters and Gifty Lama to come forward.

He promised to take any information with utmost confidentiality and protection of individuals with such information in an effort to ascertain what happened.

At the same time the husband of the deceased, Mr. Sylvester Lama has narrated that the bodies of the deceased were never viewed on their request at the crime scene and JFK.

Mr. Lama expressed said frustration Monday at St. Moses where an inquest to ascertain what happened has commenced.

But Police IG said following the inquest and police finding they will forward said information to the Ministry of Justice or call for autopsy where necessary.

Gifty Lama and Albert Peter bodies were found the morning of October 2 on Broad Street in a parked vehicle belonging to Mr. Peter.
