De´j´ávu Night Shut Down for Time Indefinite

The Government of Liberia (GOL) through the Director of the Liberia National Police (LNP), Chris Massaquio, has  closed down the Dejavu Night Club for time indefinite, following  a bloody fighting  on Christmas Eve-December 24, 2012 at the  said night club.

The Dejavu Night Club, which is one of  the  popular night clubs in the county, is situated   at the Airfield Shortcut  in Monrovia. According to the LNP Spokesman,  Mr. Sam Collins, the Dejavu Night Club would remain closed down pending the conclusion of a police investigation into the incident. 

Mr. Collins, who disclosed that 20 persons got wounded during the incident at the night club, said the fighting was occasioned by the throwing of bottles, chairs and other deadly objects. Although the LNP spokesman did not disclose the names of those who got wounded, he said they sustained injuries on their heads and legs. 

In an interview with The Heritage on Wednesday, December 26, 2012, the LNP spokesman said those who got wounded  were  rushed to the John F. Kennedy Medical Center(JFK) in Sinkor, Monrovia and other medical centers in Monrovia for treatment. While describing the fighting  at the Dijvu Night Club as “chaotic and acts of gansterism”, he pointed out that the police will not tolerate such “acts of gansterism”, as  no stone will be  unturned in bringing the doers  to justice.   

Quizzed as to what  caused the violence at the night club, he said the police have not  established the cause, saying the cause would be established via the launched investigation.  When further quizzed as to whether the police have made any arrest in connection with the bloody fighting, Mr. Collins  said he  has not been informed about any arrest made by the police. 

 Among other things, the LNP spokesman added that the management of the club is cooperating with the investigation.
