Police in Ganta, Nimba County have arrested three men for their alleged involvement in the death of a 25-year-old woman.
The deceased was married in Bain, Nengbehn Town, Electoral District One in Nimba County, but she left the town with her children.
Speaking to reporters, Amos Sahn, a care provider for the deceased, explained that the woman left the town with her children only to hear her death news.
He told reporters that the deceased was a mother of six children.
The NEW DAWN Nimba correspondent detailed that the late Yourg Cooper, 25, was preparing coal on her farm, about three hours’ walk from Nengbehn Town when she received a phone call from one of the suspects, who happened to be her boyfriend that wanted to see her on the main road.
“Following the call from one of the three suspects, the deceased left the two children on the farm near the coal and went to respond to the call when she was killed near the farm road after she covered thirty minutes walking distance to greet her boyfriend”, one resident narrates.
The 25-year-old neck was cut, resulting to her death.
However, suspects arrested are Lawrence Gono, 34; Sampson Dolo, 38, and Levin Yasiah, 45, who is the boyfriend of the late Yourg Cooper.
The suspects are currently undergoing police investigation in Sanniquellie.
The death of the young woman brings to four, the number of women that have reportedly been killed by their fiancés in what is likely domestic violence.
Few months ago, a woman believed to be in her early 40s, was killed by her boyfriend at F2 Guest House in Pearson community, Ganta City, Nimba.
Following that incident, there has been no arrest as to who committed the murder.
Report says the late Yourg Cooper’s throat was sliced and her blood drained out allegedly by the three suspects. Editing by Jonathan Browne
