It has been reported that some unscrupulous people are in the habit of stealing the newly constructed light poles in Liberia. They go about and unscrew the knots and then take the poles away. This is an issue of serious national concern!
These lights were quite recently dedicated by the President of the Republic of Liberia, H.E. George Manneh Weah to beautify the city [Monrovia], ease transportation at night and cut down criminal activities at night. The work is still ongoing, as the project is being extended to the Johnsonville Community.
The Liberia National Police has termed those involved with such acts as Anti-Development Agents and has vowed to arrest anyone caught in the act. The LNP has also asked the public to call 0770800911 or 0770800990 when they see anyone unscrewing the knots and stealing the light poles.
Who steals lights meant for development in a nation? This is really bad and such a shame!
