0 10

In a heated confrontation at the Free Port of Monrovia, Eugene Fahngon, the Director General of the Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS) and a highly controversial figure in the Boakai administration, reportedly slapped Charles Roberts, the Chief of Security at the National Port Authority (NPA). The incident occurred on Monday, July 1, 2024, when Roberts confronted Fahngon for using a drone without proper authorization. According to reports, Fahngon arrived at the Free Port claiming he had been invited by the Managing Director of the Port, Sekou Dukuly. Without prior notice or permission, Fahngon began flying a drone within the port premises. Roberts, fulfilling his duty, approached Fahngon and informed him of the port’s regulations, stating, “Fahngon, you can’t fly a drone here without permission from the management. Even if you have permission, the security should be informed.” This confrontation allegedly incited Fahngon’s anger. He retorted with, “Do you know who I am? Who are you to stop me?” Despite Roberts’ attempts to explain the rules, Fahngon reportedly slapped Roberts in the ear. The situation escalated until other security personnel intervened, calming Roberts and advising him to file an official complaint with the Managing Director or the police. The incident quickly went viral on social media, sparking widespread debate. Fahngon, known for his combative nature, has not issued a public statement regarding the alleged incident. Meanwhile, sources indicate that internal mediation efforts are underway to resolve the conflict. This incident highlights ongoing tensions within the administration and raises questions about adherence to protocol and respect for authority within government institutions.
