(February 16, 2019, Monrovia, Liberia) The Liberia National Police (LNP) clarifies that it has not shutdown Roots FM 102.7 FM as insinuated by its management.
The LNP notes that based on standard investigative procedures, a Lone Star Communication Corporation (Lonestar Cell) transmission site on Johnson Street, where an armed robbery incident allegedly occurred has been cordoned off by officers since Friday, February 15, 2019 to prevent the tampering of evidence and in furtherance of the investigation.
Let it be made categorically clear that no LNP officer has visited nor been deployed at the premises of Roots FM 102.7 as alleged by its Management.
Lonestar Cell management, the owner of the facility where the armed robbery is alleged to have occurred, has been called in and are assisting the police with the investigation.
The LNP is pursuing additional persons of interest in connection with alleged armed robbery and assures the general public that will release its investigative report in the soonest possible time.
The public can be assured of an impartial investigation.
