Police yesterday afternoon cleared blockages off the Nos. 3 and 5 villages’ roads on the West Coast Berbice (WCB) after residents protested again over the murders last month of the Henry cousins, Isaiah and Joel, and constricted travel in the area.
It is unclear exactly why the residents were protesting as the police have been investigating the killings and a team has been here from the CARICOM Regional Security System (RSS) and IMPACS assisting with the probe.
The fresh protest first started at the bridge along the main access road in Number Five Village, WCB. Those gathered first used tyres to start a fire across the road blocking traffic on both ends.
