By Alva Mulbah Wolokolie

Two men believed to be in their twenties were Friday, November 8, 2013 picked up by the Liberia National Police (LNP) in the J.J.Y Gardnersville, Somalia Drive Community after they besieged the sub-branch of the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI).

The two men took with them weapons to conduct daylight armed robbery on customers and workers at the bank.

Deputy Police Director for Operation, Col. Abraham Kromah told reporters at the Central Police Headquarters in Monrovia that the LNP got a tip-off from the community and other officers assigned along the Somalia Drive area.

Col. Kromah narrated that the LNP cannot say for now that the robbers made away with anything because the incident is being investigated and would soon be reported as to what happened at the bank.

One of the robbers was seen laying down in a pool of blood at the back of a police Nissan pick-up gasping for breath. Sources at the LNP Headquarters told the INQUIRER that authorities at LNP decided to take the robber to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Sinkor for medical treatment before being charged for any crime.
