-Wants Speedy Investigations and Conclusion As Victims Still In Mortuary For Over A Year
Nimba County electoral district seven Representative Roger Domah has lamented the mysterious deaths of his constituents and prolong conclusion of investigations.
It can be recalled early 2019 an 11-year-old girl was allegedly gang raped to death in Bweh Town, electoral district seven, Nimba County. According to report at that time, a suspect was arrested, but since them; the body of the girl still in the mortuary with no conclusion of the investigations as family members await the outcome in agony.
Addressing Legislative reporters in Monrovia Thursday December 5, 2019, Representative Roger Domah called on the Liberian Government through the Ministry of Justice to speedily investigate the matter and ensure a befitting burial of the girl whose body still languishing in the mortuary.
“We had conversations with the Ministry of Justice and they promised us that they were going to fast track the process so that the child can be buried, but it has been over five months. The families are going through the emotional hurts and I think there is a need for the government to act promptly so that the little girl can be laid to rest,” he lamented.
At the same time, Representative Domah wants speedy investigations and conclusion into the killing of two of his citizens in Gompa City, Nimba alleged to be ritualistic killers.
Meanwhile, on March 20, 2019, a large group of residents reportedly intercepted and ransacked a taxi cab that was transporting seven suspected murderers in Ganta, pulled the suspects and mobbed two of them to death.
According to information, the seven men were arrested in Bleevalay, Sea Gbeyi Administrative District for being allegedly connected to a skeleton that was discovered in a creek near the town. The police hired a commercial cab to transport the suspects. However, while en route to Sanniquellie, the taxi reportedly developed mechanical fault, thus making an abrupt stop before entering Ganta.
At that point, some residents, among them commercial motorcyclists, who heard of the story, reportedly mobbed two of the suspects to death.
Since the mob incident, police effected several arrests and later released those who they discovered were not involved, while those they investigated and established were directly connected to the mob violence sent to court for prosecution.
But Rep. Domah said through engagements, the Ministry of Justice agreed to take charge of the funeral home cost.
“I believe they did, but those bodies still at the funeral home. So, we just want to call on the government to ensure that those bodies are taken care of for the families to rest their minds. If you have your people killed in that brutal manner and their bodies are still there, all of us can imagine what the families are going through,” he said.
He is at the same time calling on the government to ensure that the case is brought to a close for the proper burial of those bodies.
