89

The Bassa Detachment of the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has apprehended an 11th-Grade student of the Bassa Seventh Day Adventist High School in Buchanan for smoking “Kush,” an illegal substance in a ghetto located within the New Buchanan Block B Community.

The arrest was made following a tip-off received by Commander Bulster Jolon from a senior elder of the community, who expressed concern about the habitual drug use among youths in the area.

Commander Jolon stated that this was the second time the student, identified as Can Wilson, has been arrested.

He had previously been apprehended several months ago, but was released to observe his behavior, becoming evident that he still continues to engage in drug use.

Expressing gratitude for the support received from the county residents since assuming his position, the DEA official thanked them for their cooperation and working relationship.

Following the arrest, the agency handed him over to the school’s administration.

In response, the Principal of Bassa Seventh Day Adventist High School, Rev. Levi Flahnma, expressed appreciation for the bold steps taken by the DEA in combating drug-related issues in the county.

He urged Commander Jolon to continue his dedicated efforts in tackling the problem.

Furthermore, Rev. Flahnma stressed that the action taken aligns with the school’s student handbook policies. Consequently, the student, Can Wilson, has been expelled from the institution due to his disgraceful conduct.

Speaking with tears streaming down his face, Student Wilson attributed his drug use to peer pressure and made a heartfelt plea for forgiveness.
