A 17-year-old motorcyclist, Moses Wolopay, popularly known as PCK has been gruesomely murdered in Peter Town, Gibi District in Margibi County.
The incident occurred recently after the deceased was allegedly chattered by a friend and two unidentified men, who are said to currently be on the run.
According to some of his colleagues (motorcyclists) who protested recently seeking justice, PCK was hired by three guys, who claimed they were travelling to Yarnwullie, Borlorla Township around 5:00 PM on March 1, 2019. Since that fateful evening, he had never been seen until his dead body was discovered with parts abstracted near Peter Town.
The 17-year-old victim’s hands and mouth were tied, hair cut and his neck tied to a tree with other body parts, including eyes, lips and tongue tempered with.
According to friends, he was enticed by his unknown predators to have been paid 800 Liberian Dollars per passenger, twice the regular transport fare from German Camp Junction to Yarnwullie into making the journey that ended his life.
His remains have since been buried with a friend only identified as Darius, reportedly arrested and being interrogated by police.
The two purported passengers who chartered the late Wolopay are still at large with the motorcycle service name PCK 5.
Investigation by the New Dawn establishes that the day before his departure from Weala, the late ‘PCK’ was seen with three men, who reportedly purchased fish cartoons and other materials purporting to be passengers.
The trio told their prey to transport them to Yarnwullie and later return with one of their friends. One of his (Moses Wolopay’s) friends had earlier informed him his boss lady wanted to see him but he allegedly insisted that he was in enroute to Yarnwullie.
Following discovery of the body, his colleagues (motorcyclists) protested at German Camp Junction, preventing vehicles plying the Monrovia-Gbarnga and Gbarnga-Monrovia highways for several hours.
However, police and local authorities subsequently intervened and calmed the situation, pleading with the cyclists to leave main road.
The protesting cyclists claim similar incident had occurred in the area with little or nothing being done by government, something, they say prompted them to protest as a way of drawing government’s attention this time around.
