Police in Nimba County have arrested and charged four persons with murder, while others are wanted by the police. According to police charged sheet, the suspects allegedly mobbed to death two men in Payeglay and Beeplay Town, District #5 in Nimba County last week.
Those arrested by police are said to have gone to revenge the death of their brother, Emmanuel Monbiah, 39, who was allegedly mobbed to death and cut into pieces by suspect Chester Gonker, 29.
The death of the two men, who were mobbed to death, has created tension among residents of the two towns with other villagers leaving for fear of their lives.
Those arrested include, Jonathan Yormie, 28, Alex Gondoum, 38, Padmore Quee, 36; Edward Killah, 51; and Stephen Monwoan, 32. Others are: Othello Gonqlue, 36, Berh Nuah, 42, among others.
According to report, the late Emmanuel Monbiah of Beeplay was accused by the late Chester Gonker of Payeglay, who was the second man to be mobbed to death, of being involved in heart-man or ritualistic activities.
Meanwhile, the commander for the Liberia National Police in Nimba, has alarmed over an increase of mob violence in the county.
Col. Morris Tomah said, since he took office as county commander about eight months ago, there have been series of mobbed violence in Nimba, mainly involving young people.
He said the only way such violence can be halted or curtailed in Nimba is to have the young people involved or sensitized against mob violence.
