According to Superintendent Jacob, many of the citizens in the district have to travel six hours to Tappita or Saclepea to complain to Police before arrests are made on the accuse for alleged crimes.
“Because of absent of State Security, aliens and drugs dealers are even using this route in Nimba to go on gold mines in Rivercess County.
The Yarwin Mansonnon Statutory Superintendent explained that the residents have also agreed to host any Police officers that will be assigned any areas in the district to enforce law and order.
