A country devil has reportedly closed down a magisterial court in Foequelleh, Panta District of Bong County, bringing down and seizing a Liberian flag hosted there after a guilty verdict was brought down against a senior traditionalist.
The NewDawn’s Bong County correspondent says since the country devil closed down the court, Magistrate William Tokpah and his staffs have all abandoned the court and gone into hiding at different locations.
The entire court in Foequelleh remains empty and the Liberian Flag is still being possessed by the country devil. According to report reaching this paper, the country devil was brought to town after the court brought down a guilty verdict against an elder in the area.
The country devil is said to have entered Foequelleh Town recently after the traditional leader in question was incarcerated by the court. Some staffs who were contacted by this paper have refused to make comment, referring this paper to Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor, Sr., whom they say is the official spokesperson of the Judicial branch of government.
Magistrate Tokpah faces allegation of allegedly violating the tradition of the locals, a situation some top traditionalists say breaches protocol of the country devil. The whereabouts of the top traditionalist involved in the case is yet to be known, but the country devil has returned to the bush. Despite the country devil’s return to the bush, Court workers are said to still be afraid to go back to work.
