MONROVIA-Liberia National Police Deputy Inspector General for Operations, Marvin Sackor has warned some  Liberians who are anticipating to stage a non-violence protest Monday, January 24, 2022, at the Capitol Building during President George Weah’s Annual State of the Nation Address, to rethink their action as the place has been declared a no-go zone for such gathering.

The LNP 102 said the police have the constitutional obligation to provide security for the President and other national leaders including members of the diplomatic corps as well as citizens.

Speaking to a cross-section of media professionals over the weekend in Monrovia, Mr. Sackor said there will be a no-go-zone for anyone who will engage in an act of protestation and assemble around the vicinity of the Capitol Building.

He stressed that the police will use the necessary force to remove any such group thus cautioning those who would-be protestors not to venture around the capital building on Monday.

The Police Deputy boss’ reaction was in preparedness to prevent any distraction during the President’s State of Nation Address on Monday.

Recently, a group of Lofa Citizens including some of their lawmakers threatened to boycott the president’s State of Nation Address while other citizens vowed to protest against the delay of the certification of their senator-elect.

Some of the citizens are requesting the Liberian Government to declare the county’s senatorial seat vacant as a means of allowing the county to have its two senators.
