President Boakai Suspends LDEA Leadership Amidst Investigation

In a decisive move to restore order and accountability, the President of the Republic of Liberia, His Excellency Joseph N. Boakai, Sr., has suspended the top leadership of the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA) with immediate effect. The suspension, which is without pay and pending investigation, affects Director General Mr. Abraham S. Kromah, Deputy Director General for Administration Mr. Gbawou Kowou, and Deputy Director General for Operations Mr. Hassan Fadiga.

This action follows the events of June 3, 2024, which President Boakai described as “acts of disorder and chaos” at the LDEA headquarters. “The acts of disorder and chaos that took place at the headquarters of the LDEA were unacceptable,” President Boakai stated, emphasizing that such incidents threaten public peace and undermine the government’s ongoing efforts to combat illicit drug activities.

The President has ordered a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the June 3 incident. In the interim, Mr. Christopher Peters has been appointed as Officer in Charge (OIC) of the Agency. Peters, who is a well-trained security professional, comes highly recommended for his expertise and dedication to public service.

This swift action underscores President Boakai’s commitment to maintaining law and order, as well as ensuring the integrity of national institutions tasked with upholding the law. The public and members of the LDEA are assured that the investigation will be conducted fairly and thoroughly, with the results determining any further steps necessary to address the issues at hand.
