Via FrontPageAfrica: Police Seize Diverted WFP Ebola Food Items in Margibi County.
Monrovia - Police in Margibi County have seized a DAF truck full with food items intended for citizens of Grand Bassa some of whom are quarantined and other survivors of Ebola but was diverted for sale on the market.
Even though Police officers conducting the investigation into the incident have refused to speak to the Press, highly-placed sources have hinted FrontPageAfrica that the DAF Truck loaded with two hundred (200) bags of rice, thirty (30) boxes of cooking oil and forty (40) bags of beans was under the supervision of the District Superintendent and Commissioner Samuel P. Karmanjay and Samuel Moore respectively.
Sources also told FPA that the items were intended for an area called Gbakpea Town in the District #1 (Teemor Chiefdom) in Grand Bassa County but were kept aside and later diverted by the two local officials of the government.
One source indicated: “Mr. Karmanjay and Mr. Moore made arrangements with some businessmen from Monrovia to purchase the stolen Ebola Food items before the Commissioner and Superintendent could move with the food they first informed the police at Cotton Tree in Margibi County that the food was going to the next town.”
Security sources involved in the investigation also hinted FPA that the two alleged doers of the act including the District Superintendent Samuel P. Karmanjay and Commissioner Samuel Moor allegedly escaped the scene and are currently on the run in Grand Bassa County.
Some citizens of the county have expressed serious disappointment over the situation, noting that Gbakpea Town was one of the worst hit Towns by Ebola that needs more assistance from the Government of Liberia and any act by anyone to deny the people that benefit should be discouraged at the highest peak.
