Reliable report from Bong County says Superintendent Esther Nyamah Walker has unilaterally suspended Yellequelleh District Paramount Chief Johnny Cooper for time indefinite.
The suspended paramount chief of Yellequelleh District has been replaced by Chief Kerkulah Kponoquelleh with immediate effect.
Briefing journalists recently in Gbartala, Yellequelleh District,Cooper alleged that his suspension is a total witch hunt, on grounds that he did not sympathy with Superintendent Walker during her leaked audio saga in the Country.
The suspended Paramount Chief who was appointed on August 10, 2019 by President Weah, has vowed not to dignify Superintendent Walker’s suspension letter.
At the same time, two sons of Yellequelleh District, Richard Parry Kollie, and J. Larmah Paypay believe, Cooper’s indefinite suspension is not in the interest of the District.
Kollie and Paypay have threatened to stage vigorous peaceful demonstration at the compound of Superintendent Walker in demand of their legitimate paramount chief Johnny Cooper.
“We need our Paramount Chief back, we do not need new person to serve our Clan,” Mr. Kollie says.
But when contacted by journalists over the weekend, Superintendent Esther Walker and the Ministry of Internal Affairs Communications Officer promised to address the media in subsequent time.By Joseph Titus Yekeryan in Bong–Edited by Winston W. Parley
