Sources closed to the GNN during last week have hinted that some leading former rebel generals who actively took part in Liberia’s nearly fifteen years senseless bloody civil war that killed over 250,000 innocent Liberians and foreign residents backed with the destruction of the country’s major infrastructural have gathered in an undisclosed location in Monrovia for a ‘Called meeting’.

According to our informed sources, the meeting in question was scheduled to have been held on last Wednesday, December 7, 2022 with many fierce Liberian rebel commanders from nearly all of the armed factions that took part during the country’s bloody civil war reportedly formed part of this gathering which our sources said took place in the Paynesville suburb.

However, some residents of Paynesville who spoke to our reporters about this, said they are in total fear over the alleged grouping of former warlords in their community, questioning the actual motives behind their reported ‘Called Meeting ‘   in their community, and further called on the National Security Agency to launch an urgent investigation.

It is not however clear during GNN investigation into this reported gathering of former rebel generals as to whether one of the country’s main rebel leaders, and now Senator of Nimba County, Prince Y. Johnson is part of this gathering. Efforts by our staff to contact the Senator via mobile phone multiple times regrading said gathering did not materialize.

Last week, the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), Major General Prince C. Johnson revealed to the public on a local radio station that he received multiple calls and text messages from individuals he did not name abroad asking him to overthrow President Weah and his government.

The Liberian Army Chief of Staff’s revelations did not go down well with several Liberians who in return condemned for such disclosure.

Our investigation continues
