LCC Frowns on Attack On Christ Chapel of Faith -Wants Police Curb Hooliganism in Society

MONROVIA : The Liberia Council of Churches (LCC) in the strongest term condemns the act of hooliganism displayed Sunday, May 21, 2023 at the Christ Chapel of Faith Pastored by Evangelist Prince Y. Johnson and Senator of Nimba County.

LCC recounted that the violent act carried out by individuals believed to be supporters of the National Patriotic Party by extension, the Coalition for Democratic Change occurred on Sunday, May 21, 2023 during normal worship service when the preacher was on the pulpit.

A press release issued yesterday and signed by the LCC’s President Rev. Samuel B. Reeves quoted the LCC as saying that these continuous acts of hooliganism must be brought under total control by the Ministry of Justice through the Liberia National Police as the country gears up for Presidential and Legislative Elections.

The Council of Churches averred that someone must be held accountable for Sunday disturbances at the Christ Chapel of Faith before it becomes the new routine for protestors who are thinking of invading other places of worship across the country.

“The Council views that the Liberia National Police will be held responsible if nothing serious is done in this case to bring those perpetrators to book to avoid further disturbances, the release pointed out, adding, “The LCC frowns on attack at the Religious Community – Houses of Worship and is concerned that Worship experiences are now under threats, something the Council of Churches describes as highly unacceptable.”

The LCC indicated that situations like these will continue to erode the hard-earned peace Liberians have so ably established over the years if impunity continues to be the order of the day.

“The Council of Churches calls on the Liberia National Police by Extension the Ministry of Justice to arrest those who were involved in the barbaric act yesterday,” the release pointed out, noting “The LCC also calls on the National Patriotic Party from which the group came from to take action that supports the rule of law and non-violence.”

The Council then called on the Christian community to remain prayerful and peaceful as the Council engages the relevant stakeholders in nurturing and maintaining the peace during these electioneering periods, the release concluded.
