LIBERIA: In Bong County Lawmaker’s Advisor To Murder

By Emmanuel Mafelah

Since the mysterious death of Satta Banda age 15, a resident of Gbartala Yelequelleh District in Bong County, suspect Josephine Sulonteh has linked Bong County Electoral District #5 Representative Edward Karfiah advisor JD Kolleh to the killing of Satta Banda of Gbartala Yelequelleh District.

Others linked to the commission of the crime are Amos Molo and Amos Sulonteh the uncle to suspect Josephine.

Suspect Josephine Sulonteh, was charge by the Liberia National Police for criminal facilitation in the murder of the late Satta Banda in Gbartala, Bong County.

The victim boyfriend Clarence David along with others were late last year arrested charged with murder by the Bong County Crime Services Division of the Liberia National Police and put behind bars at the Gbarnga Central Prison for being allegedly linked to the gruesome murder of Satta.

During police preliminary investigation in the case it was established the late Satta Banda was rape by those unscrupulous individuals before being killed.

After spending barley four months in jail at the Gbarnga central prison awaiting court trial, prime suspect Josephine Sulonteh pointed accusing fingers to Amos Molo, Amos Sulonteh and J.D Kolleh for masterminding the death of her friend Satta.

Josephine said though Satta was killed in cold blood, but admitted that she was accompanied by the late Satta at a night ceremony in Gbartala in which instance, the act was committed.

She confessed that her uncle Amos Sulonteh and JD. Kolleh attempted giving her $3,000US Dollars to falsely testify of her innocence to the killing of the girl after she captured them in the middle of the night committing the crime an offer Josephine said she refused on grounds that she fears the power of God.

But all effort made by this paper to contract the alleged murderer, J. D Kolleh prove fruitless.
