The Liberia Motorcyclist Transport Union (LMTU) has strongly condemned the arrest of ex-police officer Yekeh Kolubah by the Liberia National Police for alleged armed robbery. The union said the act is a clear attempt to tarnish the reputation of Mr. Kolubah, a law abiding citizen.
Speaking to SKY news on Tuesday, the secretary general of the LMTU Robert Sammie said the idea of arresting any citizen should be based on violating the law. Mr. Sammie said under the law, one is presumed innocent until proven guilty, noting “I know Mr. Kolubah for a long time and he does not engage in such act as claimed by the Liberia National Police.”
He accused deputy police director for operation Abraham Kromah of masterminding Yekeh’s arrest. Mr. Yekeh Kolubah, who has spent two nights in prison, is expected to appear in court on Monday.
