Posted 7 April 2016 · Add Comment

Security has been heightened across Liberian airports this week, on the 20th anniversary of Roosevelt Johnson's death.

The Liberia Airport Authority (LAA) has introduced tightened security measures, including the enforcement of armed security, at both the Roberts International Airport and James Spriggs Payne Airfield in Monrovia after growing terrorism in the area.
 
On April 6, 1996, Roosevelt Johnson was killed in an attack by Charles Taylor's National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL) and Alhaji Koromah's ULIMO-K. Johnson was responsible for the deaths of 50 civilians.
