The Liberia Female Law Enforcement Association (LIFLEA) has condemned the recent video of a nude young Liberian lady posted which was posted on the social media.
It is alleged that the video was uploaded by one Mohammed Sambolah, an Associate Professor at the University of Liberia, and also an employee of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning.
The Association believes that, such explicit sex video on the social media did not only expose the dignity of womanhood to ridicule, but seriously disgraced the pride of women of Liberia and the world at large.
LIFLEA described the act by Mr. Sambollah as uncivilized, barbaric, inhumane, damaging, gross disrespect and embarrassing, most especially to married women in Liberia and the world over.
The video, according to the Liberia Female Law Enforcement Association, brings a bad image of women to a worldwide audience and should be condemned by all.
LIFLEA is calling on the national security apparatus to bring to book Mr. Sambollah for prosecution so as to serve as deterrent for would be perpetrators.
This has not been the first time such pornographic videos of women in our society have been posted on social media which brings our moral values into disrepute.
