BONG COUNTY: Family members of the burnt Commander of the Liberia National Police (LNP), in Bong County, Morhafee Jabbateh, have threatened protest actions against the leadership of the Liberia National Police (LNP), on behalf of their son who sustained injuries in the Totota Tanker Explosion occurrence in December of 2023.

In December 2023, a tanker was involved in an accident in Totota, causing it to veer off the road and toppled over.

As citizens gathered to siphon fuel from the tanker, it exploded, leaving several dead and many persons injured.

Commander Morhafee Jabbateh of the LNP in Totota was burned while helping to rescue citizens during the explosion.

Since the incident, the government of Liberia has allegedly abandoned him in the county.

Speaking with Newsman in Gbarnga, Bong County, on Friday, May 24, 2024, Mr. Ayouba Doumuyah, uncle to commander Jabbateh said, they as a family, will protest against the Liberia National Police (LNP) for abandoning their son.

According to Doumuyah, on a daily basis, their son’s health condition gets worst, something he said, is due to LNP officer’s abandonment by LNP authorities.

He assured citizens that they, as family members of Commander Jabbateh, would organize a massive protest but peaceful regarding LNP officer Jabateh’s worsening health condition.

He alleged that since the accident, the government of Liberia has failed to address Commander Morhafee Jabbateh’s health issues, despite medical advice to transfer him to India for advanced treatment.

The pending protest, he said, aims to draw the government’s and humanitarian organizations’ attention to their ailing brother and son who was performing his professional and national duties when he was injured in the Totota Tanker Explosion occurrence.

He further stated that if the government of President Joseph N. Boakai does not intervene in brining relief as it relates to LNP officer Jabateh’s health condition, the aggrieved family will also protest at the residence of President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, as a way of informing the international community about what the family perceives as bad governance in Liberia.

“If anything happens to our brother, we will protest and sue the Liberian government,” Doumuyah added.

Mr. Ayouba Doumuyah also expressed disappointment in the leadership of the Bong County Legislative Caucus for their handling of the LNP officer’s health issues in the county.
