A Liberia National Police (LNP) probe has revealed that the two children whose bodies were discovered in a vehicle in the VOA Community on the Robertsfield highway died as a result of suffocation and not ritualistic killing.
LNP Inspector General Chris Massaquoi clarified that contrary to some media reports and other speculations, examination has found that all the body parts of the two children are intact, adding, “And the bodies have so far shown no signs of being brutally murdered.”
Addressing the Ministry of Information press briefing Thursday, Massaquoi pointed out that the vehicle in which the children were found has an inside lock, noting, “t is possible that it was locked by the children while trying to get out.”
According to Massaquoi, the death of the two children is accidental and the police do not have evidence to link Mr. Henry O. Nnadi, who was suspected of killing them.
Mr. Victor Moses, guardian of the two children, had filed a complaint at the Zone 8 Police depot located in the ELWA Community on December 1 regarding the two boys who had gone missing.
The following morning, December 2, the bodies of Ruben Paye, aged seven years, and Alvin Moses, aged four years, were discovered in a vehicle belonging to Nigerian national Nnadi, a next door neighbor of the children.
