By Grace Q. Bryant

The Inspector General of the Liberia National Police (LNP), Gregory Coleman, has announced the arrest of a key suspect in the tragic death of Police Officer Amanda Nebo.

According to the report, Officer Nebo met her untimely demise in a chilling incident on April 14, around midnight after she was confronted by unidentified individuals who demanded her handbag.

Speaking at a press briefing held at the Ministry of Information, Culture Affairs, and Tourism on Tuesday, March 16, Coleman disclosed that the apprehended suspect has provided crucial information leading to the identification of additional individuals suspected of carrying out the crime.

He added that efforts are underway to apprehend those individuals, with plans to have them in custody within the next day or two while the prime suspect continues undergoing interrogation.

To address the concerning rise in crime, particularly related to motorcycle offenses, Coleman outlined proactive measures being implemented by the LNP and that those measures extend beyond resource deployment, with considerations for curfews on motorcyclists to bolster safety measures for both riders and passengers.

Highlighting the urgency of targeted interventions, Coleman recounted a recent incident where a prompt action from a citizen averted a potential tragedy involving motorcyclists wielding machetes.

He shared that two days ago, a woman visited his office to report an incident she witnessed while driving home around Somalia Drive at 11:30 pm and how she described seeing two motorcyclists armed with machetes chasing another cyclist.

She had to maneuver her vehicle between them, forcing the assailants off the road and rescuing the victim.

The police IG emphasized the prevalence of motorcycle-related crimes in the area and discussed plans to enhance safety measures.

He further revealed that they are reviewing measures to put in place to curtail the situation and ensure people’s safety noting that they are anticipating enforcing a curfew on motorcyclists to bolster safety measures for both riders and passengers.

Meanwhile, he said the community will be informed about the measures to be implemented for crimes reduction and public safety in the next 24 hours.
