As Liberians still ponder over the mysterious deaths of some innocent people including the deaths of six auditors were murdered under the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) of President George Manneh Weah but declined to name the alleged murderers.
Speaking on the Spoon Live Wednesday, January 25, 2023, Fahngon publicly disclosed that the auditors were murdered for doing their professional jobs as auditors in the interest of the Liberian people but their works were thwarted by the alleged murderers.
He alleged that late Emmanuel Barten Nyeswua, director-general of the Liberia Internal Audit Agency, Gifty Lama, acting manager for tax services; Albert Peters, assistant commissioner for audit at the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) were murdered, while another auditor at the Revenue Authority, George Fanbutu, died reportedly in a car accident when driving home from a business meeting.
So far police have only said that Fanbutu lost control of his vehicle and died in a collision; but a local talk-show host in Monrovia broadcast that two assailants on motorbikes had been chasing Fanbutu, forced open his door while the vehicle was in motion.
Following the mysterious death of the auditors, in 2020 the Institute of Internal Auditors wrote the U.S. State Department to help authorities in Liberia investigate the suspicious deaths of four government auditors this month who were looking into possible misappropriation of funds in the African country.
In that letter to the than Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, IIA president and CEO Richard Chambers asked for support from the U.S. government for Liberian President George Weah’s request for help in investigating the deaths.
Mr. Fahngon’s revelations on the deaths of the auditors seems to reawakened the sorrows of relatives of those who died mysteriously during the performing their nationalistic duties.
However, speaking further on Spoon Live, Fahngon say he is ready to testify before any group that will be willing to launch an investigation in the alleged brutal murdered of those auditors.
