Liberia: Nimba Caucus Condemns Yekepa Rioting

The Nimba Legislative Caucus has condemned the recent violent action in Yekepa, Nimba County during which properties of ArcelorMittal were vandalized.

The caucus said, while it is true that there were pressing issues that needed redress, the violence was not in place and did not represent the people of the county.

Making the disclosure Thursday, the co-chair of the Caucus, Richard M. Tingban, said though the citizens were very harsh in their approach, the government needs to adhere to the citizens' plight and address them in a timely faction.

At the same time, Nimba County District Two Representative Prince Tokpah, has clarified speculations that he influenced the rioting process in the county.
