Liberia’s Health Minister Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah

Relatives of the two detained Ministry of Health (MoH) employees say their family members (Samuel G. Tiah and Ben Pable) who were detained allegedly upon orders of the Minister of Health, Dr. Wilhemina S. Jallah whereabouts are unknown since they were taken from the Kambia detention center to Freetown.

When Samuel G. Tiah, one of the detainees spoke told the GNN via whasApp early this morning, August 29, 2021 that they had been taken from the Kambia detention center for Freetown, Sierra Leone for further interrogation, they are not been heard from since the last spoke to our staff.

The two employees who are detained in Sierra Leone

However, relatives of the detained Health Ministry employees who spoke to the GNN said, the two bikes which reportedly led to the detention of the two Health Ministry employees in Sierra Leone have been retrieved in Monrovia, and hoping to take them to the Ministry.

When GNN contacted the Minister of Health, Dr. Jallah via mobile phone as to whether she is in the know for the detention of her two employees in Sierra Leone, she softly responded to our staff ‘No’ meaning that she is not aware of such information relating to the imprisonment of  two of her employees in Sierra Leone.

But according to additional information gathered by this outlet revealed that the Minister did purchase a Toyota Pickup for her Chief Driver for services rendered over the years, but to the dismay of many, documents in the possession of GNN carries the name of two persons (The Chief Driver and the Chief Security), a situation that reportedly gave rise for their arrest and subsequent detention.
