Armed Men Allegedly Poison New Georgia Well

first_imgResidents in New Georgia on Somalia Drive Road have alleged that some unknown individuals are poisoning wells and hand pumps “to kill [them] in the name of Ebola.”Mr. Franklin Friday, who spoke to the Daily Observer, reported that at about 4 a.m. Monday, August 4, they saw two gigantic individuals (unknown), armed with guns, using a medical syringe and attempting to drop a liquid substance into the well that is being used by thousands of homes in the area.As a result, Mr. Friday noted that people in the community are afraid, because he said many people are dying from these deadly acts and claiming that it is “Ebola.”According to him, after noticing the unusual acts by these individuals, they immediately contacted their lawmaker (Rep. Saah Joseph) to look in the matter.When Rep. Joseph arrived, he brought along with him some officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and instructed them to lock the  well and contact other relevant government agencies to conduct testing on these wells. If proven to be contaminated, the community will launch a serious investigation into the matter.Also speaking, Buston Kolliegbo, who resides in the area, said that the Ebola issues have become so alarming that the whole nation has been affected economically and socially.  There is a complete breakdown of citizens’ health care because of the different ways in which the problem is being tackled.“Nobody is having exact information as to the diagnosis and everybody is confused. So the [well poisoning] incident that happened yesterday at the [New Georgia] junction is a wakeup call on the government, especially the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOH&SW), to test the water in every well,” Kolliegbo suggested.     Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
