The killings must stop!

-- Dr. Alan White asks U.S. for prosecution of those in ritualistic killings in Liberia

The U.N. former chief investigator for the special court of Sierra Leone, Dr. Alan White is requesting prosecution for ritualistic killings and despicable crimes against humanity in Liberia during war and in peace, saying “the killings must stop.”

Dr. Alan briefed U.S. lawmakers in Washington Tuesday, 19 September 2023, giving historical accounts of recent killings and those carried out during Liberia’s civil war for ritualistic purposes.

“Those involved need to be exposed and prosecuted for these heinous crimes. The killings must stop, and we hope that through legislature can effect change and stop this madness once and for all,” said Dr. White.

Dr. White indicated that former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s administration was plagued with ritualistic killings, and the same problem continues under incumbent President George Manneh Weah’s administration.

Unlike Sirleaf’s administration, Dr. White said, there was no insider reporting on her direct involvement on ritualistic killings.

However, he said he has received information that President Weah’s administration is being linked to the ritualistic killings of children.

He said sources have revealed that the police are only allowed to investigate these matters in a conspicuous but very superficial manner.

Dr. White explained that notable of these cases is the incident involving victims Robert Blamo, Jr., 29, Siafa Boimah, 33 and Blama, who went missing after being hired by St. Moses Funeral Parlor proprietor Mr. Moses Ahoussouhe to undertake a contract in Bong Mines.

Mr. Ahoussouhe was accused of hiring the three men on Saturday, 15 October 2020 to travel to Bong Mines to do technical work for him at his diamond creek when all three of them went missing. They were alleged to have drowned when a canoe they were riding in had capsized.

Dr. White said Ahoussouhe (St. Moses) retrieved the bodies of the three young men but they were never returned to their parents.

“He has close ties with the president and the Government of Liberia, and through the Ministry of Justice, he has contact as well. They failed to provide update or release the outcome of the investigation or report on the circumstances that led to the conclusion [that] they drowned,” said Dr. White.

Dr. White indicated that the aggrieved families believe that their children are being kept in a secret place to be used for ritualistic purposes.

He said the family members sought the assistance of the international community including the U.S. Embassy and the United Nations, leading the UN to call on the Liberian government to investigate killings which had been reported to link to ritual practice.

In 2021 alone, Dr. White said at least ten people were killed, reportedly linked to ritualistic killing or political motivation.

He added that they were either former officials or had links to former politicians. White noted that recent deaths involving some girls during President George Manneh Weah’s 2023 political campaign outraged the citizens.

He said the allegation is that the killings were done for ritualistic reasons. He also referenced citizens’ message to President Weah which was carried in the NewDawn newspaper’s headline that no amount of money or rituals can help President Weah and his Coalition for Democratic Change from leaving office after the 10 October 2023 elections.

Dr. White said his organization will continue to work on these issues in African countries, especially Liberia which experiences despicable crimes against humanity during war and in peace.

He recalled that during the 14 years civil war in Liberia, there were so many cases where gunmen, some of them child soldiers, ate victims’ body parts.

He stated that it was well documented that during Liberia’s civil war, ritualistic killing was a common place, naming Gen. Butt Naked, now Evangelist Milton Blayee as of the notorious culprits.

According to Dr. White, Mr. Blayee testified before Liberia’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) that he ate children’s hearts.

He said Blayee indicated that human sacrifices were intended to ensure victories in battles.

  1. Oh shut up!!! You wouldn’t be so mad if it wasn’t true. The blood of the innocent cries out for justice. The time for exposure has long passed. There are no justifications for the heinous crimes that were committed during the Liberian Civil War and continues to be committed, but your only take on it is something, something, something about white man….blah, blah, blah.
    All humans should be equally appalled with anything of this sort still going on in the world. And YOU know they are true and NOT lies!! Shame on you.

  2. It is disgusting that Alen White feels Liberia is an American colony over which he has the governorship!
    Liberia is a sovereign independent nation that doesn’t subscribe to the dictates of America neither to its agents!

    These accusations against our president Weah are out of order, false, rude, and are displays of “white skin” supremacy over black people!

    Geopolitical precedence of decency in contemporary time affirms responsible statesmanship and a defined culture diplomacy, something that is lacking in Allen White and the American audience towards other jurisdictions.

    Greater urgency of human rights violations, racism, racial inequality, and the killings of black people in America, are greater threats to America’s stability that Allen White should devote his time to as an American than to Liberia’s problems.

    The days of slavery of white rules are over!
    And we in Liberia do not need a white liberator for our problems!

    Liberia’s laws and governance are accountable to the people of Liberia not to a Alen White, a foreigner and a racist imperialist!

    Liverians have become aware of Allen White’s masquerades political manueverings in cohorts with Jerome Verdier, Stanton Witherspoon, that career fraudster, Eugene Fahngon, Alexander Cummings, Alaric Tokpah, Joseph Nyumah Boakai, and dissent Liberians in the Americas, who are plotting to subvert the democratic process either through a coup detat or by importing an interim government in the likely hood of their candidate, Joseph Nyumah Boakai, losing the elections (and he will lose the elections)


    Spew your nonsense accusations to Joe Biden,THAT MASS MURDERER IN THE WHITE HOUSE who is sending innocent Ukrainians to die for his corruptioncover up in Ukraine!

    How dare you falsely accuse our president!

    WHAT A SHAMLESS American multilateralism that has transformed into a global hegemonic overpass over weaker and smaller nations !

    An Alen White’s Liberian engagement is a ruthless financial benevolence!

    What’s a shameless blantant interference !
