The decomposed remains of an unidentified man believes to be in his early 30s have been discovered in a rubber farm in Zuluyee town, Electoral district #2 along the Ganta-Sanniquellie highway in Nimba County.
The body was found about five minutes away from the main road towards the rubber farm.The New Dawn Nimba County Correspondent, who visited the scene, says ropes were still on the remains, including personal effects of the victim’s.
Police in Ganta City, Nimba County have invited proprietor of the farm, Augustine Brewer for questioning.The Town Chief of Garr Zuluyee Sampson Wuo, narrates that prior to the discovery, his 35-year-old son Lanford Wuo, had gone missing about three weeks without trace.
Chief Wuo explains his son was buying rubber for farmer Augustine Brewer from a Guinean national of Naapa inside Guinea.He laments that since his son went missing some three weeks ago, it was one day to the discovery of the badly decomposed body before Brewer broke news about his disappearance, disclosing to the family that Lanford Wuo absconded with 35,000 Liberian Dollars that was given to him to buy rubber as usual.
According to Chief Wou, after Mr. Augustine Brewer informed them, the next day a body was discovered by some students who had gone in the rubber farm to fetch woods.A 15-man jury reports the decomposed body was found in the rubber farm with several ropes on skeleton of the victim’s, including clothes and other items.
A tapper on the farm Peter George told this paper the victim was never in the employ of the farm neither had he worked there before.Mr. George discloses that since he started working on the farm, only four tappers have been working there and none of them were missing.
However, Chief Wou alleges that businessman Augustine Brewer informs the family to give him few days to produce the living body of their son Lanford Wuo. Meanwhile, police in Yekepa, Nimba County have arrested a hunter, who allegedly killed a 15-year-old girl and wounded her mother.
Our Correspondent says the deceased along with her mother Panicle Dolo, and other family members were returning from the farm when hunter Paye Flomo fired at them with his single barrel gun, instantly killing the 15-year-old girl and wounding her mother, who is said to be receiving medication in Guinea.
Hunter Flomo explains that he mistakenly saw the family like animals and opened fire, killing one instantly.The body of the deceased, Ophelia Babygirl, has been turned over to the family for burial while hunter Paye Flomo is facing police investigation.
