Following Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon’s post on social media last evening that he suffered what he referred to as “targeted disrespect” when operatives of the Executive Protection Security (EPS) prevented him and his security bodyguards yesterday, from entering the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium where Montserrado County played against Lofa County, the Executive Protection Service (EPS) has reacted sharply expressing dismay over “the continuous failure of Montserrado County Senator Darius Dillon to observe and abide by established protocols put in place to usher guests at functions that the President is attending”.
The EPS in a press release said “This action was disappointingly repeated on Sunday, January 31, 2021 during the final match of the County Meet tournament, when the Senator without regards to the protocols instructed his personal guards to ignore and bypass security in order to enter the VIP stand at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex. Spectators entering this section, as was the case with all other gates, were required to present tickets”.
The EPS release further stated that “Sen. Dillion was also told that every representative and Senator in the VIP section was there without a personal security, especially when the designated security doesn’t have a ticket”.
EPS furthered that the Senator’s refusal to adhere to these guidelines resulted in a melee during which his security injured an EPS officer and broke the glass at the entrance. But in spite of the unfortunate scene, the EPS offered the Senator the opportunity to enter the VIP stand; a gesture he refused.
“The EPS wishes to remind the Senator and all others bent on provocations that are meant to tarnish the reputation of the group that it will continue to remain professional in the discharge of its duties, and all will be treated in accordance with the EPS standard operation procedure no matter their status”, the release concluded.
