Kelvin was arrested on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 in Ganta, Nimba County by LIS officers assigned in Nimba, after being booked for impersonating.

According to the BIN Spokesman, Col. Abraham Dorley, imposter Booyee had been operating as an assigned officer in his home town in Whapa, Nimba County.

Dorley told FrontPage Africa via mobile phone Wednesday that the imposter was booked for arresting and selling a motorbike belonging to an alien.

“He was arrested for arresting an alien and selling a motorbike that belongs to the alien,” Dorley said.

The BIN Spokesman, however, refused to name the alien for security reasons.

According to the BIN, Booyee was arrested in full BIN attire but claimed that the uniform was given to him by a friend in his home town only identified as Tuazama.

He was reportedly not seen with an LIS identification card which Dorley considers criminal in nature.

Booyee is currently undergoing preliminary investigation at the headquarters of the Liberia Immigration Service.
