 Six agents of the Executive Protective Service (EPS) have been disarmed and placed under investigation following a scuffle between some EPS agents and soldiers of the Armed Forces of Liberia who were assigned at the Samuel Kanyon Doe’s sports complex.

The incident resulted into an AFL soldier being shot and 5 others sustaining injuries. An EPS agent was also injured. The shot AFL soldier is currently receiving treatment at the John F. Kennedy hospital.

The fracas occurred in the morning hours of Sunday, November 18, ahead of a football match between the Liberian national team, the Lone Star and the Zimbabwean national team in an African Cup of Nations qualifier.

The national security apparatus has put the situation under control and all is peaceful and orderly at the SKD.

Such an incident is totally unwarranted and the government wishes to assure the general public that those culpable will bear the full weight of the law. All have been asked to go about their normal activities and those who previously planned to be at the SKD in order to cheer the national team can do so unfettered.
