Bush meat is a delicacy in Liberia cuisine but is suspected to be a carrier of the Ebola virus

In line with measures to combat the deadly Ebola virus in the country, the Minister of Justice, Cllr. Christina Tah, has with immediate effect authorized the Liberia National Police (LNP), headed, by Police Director, Col. Clarence C. Massaquoi, to arrest anyone found with bush meat.

Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, July 30, at the Ministry of Justice in Sinkor, the Justice Minister said the police were enforcing the bush meat ban because it has been suspected that bush animals are carriers of the deadly Ebola virus.
