Senator Johnson is recorded in history as the killer of President Samuel Doe during the brutal Liberian civil war. But the Nimba County lawmaker has repeatedly said he killed Doe because he hunted and assassinated several Nimbaians and as such; he came in their defense.
“Nimbaians we know, we were under seize, our county was under seize by the Samuel Doe regime. We have audio report, we have video report where you see Nimbaians were killed in their county. We have those reports,” Senator Prince Yormie Johnson.
He continues to brag as the hero of Nimba county and continues to make inflammatory statements regarding the establishment of war and economic crimes court in the country.
Recently he named several Nimbaians including Nimba County electoral district eight Representative Larry Younquoi, Cllr. Tiawan Gongloe and Nimba electoral district five Representative Samuel Kogar as those behind the establishment of war and economic crimes court in the country.
Senator Johnson said those individuals’ homes will be visited first when there is chaos in the country. The former warlord of the defunct Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia (INPFL) however warned that if the Amnesty law which grants all participants in the Liberian civil war between 1990 and 2003 is ignored and other impose their will on the Liberian people, there will be crisis and everyone will regret.
“If you want to disregard the amnesty law and impose your will on us, then you will have a crisis and you will regret. Go grab Alhaji Kromah, all the mandingo people will rise up, George Boley, all the Krahn people will rise up. You wouldn’t even catch me because the resistance you will find from the young guys will be maximum, uncontrollable and ungovernable.”
“People who talking, it’s good you talking so we can know you so the day trouble comes here, which we don’t pray for, your homes will be visited first,” he said.
But appearing on Okay FM Wednesday November 14, 2018, Representative Larry Younquoi said Senator Johnson should stop bragging as the liberator of the county and its citizens saying “he is leaving from hero to zero”
Representative Younquoi described as ‘reckless’ statements from Senator Johnson that he Younquoi and others homes will be visited when there is chaos for the establishment of war and economic crimes court in Liberia.
“This is reckless and irresponsible statements coming from a senator. He doesn’t position himself as somebody that could be called a senator. For you to look at your fellow elected officials and say you know their homes and they will be the first people to visit. It’s reckless.
“He wants all of us to be licking his boots in the county. You have been paid for whatever you did for the people of Nimba,” he said.
He warned Senator Johnson that he shouldn’t be thinking that Nimbaians will rise up when he (Senator Johnson) is called for war and economic crimes in the country.
“I think Adolphus Dolo should be appreciated instead of Senator Johnson. Senator Johnson left this country as a zero and not as a hero. He left here as a refugee, ECOMOG has to literally evict him to go and it was Adolphus Dolo that came from the war front with wounds on his side and put on a defense in Ganta and this is the gentleman that fought until the last arm was taken.
“He has nothing to take credit for. He was sitting here in Caldwell arresting Nimba intelligentsias. He almost killed Cllr. Tiawan Gongloe, Johnson Gwaikolo. He arrested them and put them in containers,” he added.
He added “I think Senator Johnson is on his way of becoming a zero instead of hero.”
Representative Younquoi wants state security to arrest Senator Johnson for making inflammatory statements regarding the establishment of war and economic crimes court in the country.
He has vowed to sign the documents for the establishment of war and economic crimes court in the country.
“I blame the senate and the executive branch of government for allowing Senator Johnson to be reckless in statements that he makes around. If that was a country that’s interested in life of people, this is treasonable. He should be called for questioning,” he recommended.
Representative Younquoi said “it is an unfortunate situation that the county finds itself in for a senior senator that children and even government officials will be running to hide under his wing in case of trouble to be the one responding like this is worrisome.”
“The call that Senator Johnson is a hero because he fought on behalf of the county, that particular thing has outlaid its usefulness because it’s taking us one step in front and taking us ten steps behind. The war that Senator Johnson executed for which he’s being glorified caused Nimba people a lot,” he said.
According to the Nimba district eight lawmaker, for Senator Johnson to open a new page subjecting the county to collective guilt where everybody will start believing that Nimbaians have nothing to do but to fight even if it means fighting unjustly, it behues upon Nimbaians to clarify that the Senator is talking for himself and not on behalf of the citizens of Nimba County.
