The main opposition Congress for Democratic Change or CDC Chairman, Nathaniel McGill says “right now” Liberia “appears to be insecure”. His fear is in reaction to a number of deaths in the country, including that of former Liberian Petroleum Refining Company Managing Director Harry Greaves.
“I’m an opposition leader; if I see the way Harry Greaves died and the Attorney general gets on the radio [and] there is no clear information, I’m scare – I’m afraid for my own safety,” he told Prime Morning Drive on Prime Fm 105.5 Thursday, 4 February.
Mr. Greaves’ lifeless body was, on Sunday morning, January 31, 2016, discovered completely naked on a beach behind the fence of the Old Planning Ministry in close proximity of the Executive Mansion, having allegedly gone missing last Friday night from the International RLJ Kendeja Hotel, off the Robertsfield Highway, outside Monrovia.
He mutilated body was discovered just about a week after a Nigerian banker – Managing Director of the Guaranty Trust (GT) Bank here, Mr. Don Orogun, allegedly fell over from a boat in which he and his family and Liberian businessman Atty.
George Kailondo, were riding on Sunday, 24 January. But the CDC official, Mr. McGill, raised fears that “when people are dying the way they are dying, that’s a serious sign for concern,” thereby suggesting that the security here needs to take action to ensure that the people are secured.
Besides, Mr. McGill raised contention over information allegedly coming from Liberia’s Justice Minister and Attorney General, Cllr. Benedict Sannoh, accusing him of “speculating.” He claimed that there was no clear information surrounding the death of Harry
Greaves, demanding the government to make sure that the pathologist’s report was made public through a press conference at the Ministry of Information.
He insisted that those responsible for security need to be very clear when there was already fear among the people, further urging that “government come clean on the issue of Honorable Greaves.”
President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has already mandated Minister Sannoh to source foreign experts either from the United States or the United Kingdom to come and conduct independent investigation, as the government was eager to get to the bottom of the matter.
