MONROVIA: About one week following a tragic shooting incident involving an agent of the Executive Protection Service (EPS), in the Police Academy Community in Paynesville, the EPS has with immediate effect, disrobed one of its agents, identified as Uel T. Davies, for allegedly discharging his assigned fire arm at a local bar in the Du-port Road community in Paynesville.

The EPS, through a formal communication, noted that it has disrobed and turned Officer Davies over to the Liberia National Police for investigation.

The shooting incident took place during the night hours of Saturday, July 9, 2022, at the Renaissance Bar and Restaurant on Duport Road outside Monrovia.

Police Spokesman, Moses Carter, noted that Officer Davies has attributed the incident to “mistaken discharged.”

The incident, according to EPS release, has left several people wounded.
“Agent T. Davies has been disrobed with immediate effect and turned over to the Liberia National Police for investigation following his reported involvement in a shooting incident in which some people got wounded,” the release noted.

The incident is the third of its kind in less than two weeks for state security personnel to discharge a firearm.

Last week, an officer of the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) of the Liberia National Police (LNP), James Togba, also discharged a firearm in Point-Four, New Kru Town, reportedly leading to the death of one person.

Officer Togba has been investigated and forwarded to court for prosecution as requires by the laws of the country.
