26 March 2010

Several persons, amongst them a top government official, have been arrested in Harper, Maryland County, amidst reports that a 7-month old pregnant woman was killed, the child extracted from
her, with the blood poured in bottles for ritualistic purposes.

One of those arrested, Tatu Clark, head of the local
airline, Elisian, told this paper that no formal charges have been
brought against them.



A prominent official, Fulton Yancy, was reportedly found with the bottles of blood and the intestines of the dead child in his house. Mr. Yancy's family has a history of ritualistic killings spanning decades. His older brother, Allen Yancy, along with several others, was convicted of the crime in 1977 and hung in 1978 despite protests from members of the political establishment at the time, since the convicted Yancy served as Vice President and chair of the lone ruling party, the True Whig Party.

Another top official arrested in connection with the crime Dan Morias, listed in the Truth and Reconciliation report for abuses when he served as Minister of Internal Affairs in the Charles Taylor regime. He now served as Special Envoy for the current Government.

The accused individuals, currently detained at the Harper police station, are held for series of ritualistic killings in the County, including that of the a 7-month pregnant woman, identified as Tomo Allison, who county officials say was brutally killed along with her unborn fetus with both allegedly used for ritual purposes.
They are amongst 18 persons suspected of killings in the Country for ritualistic purposes.

Reports from Maryland County said traditional doctors also discovered several human parts were in the home of Cllr. Fulton Yancy following a search of his premises. He is a member of the government's current prosecution team in the County.

One youth leader in the area told the New Democrat in a telephone interview that bottles of blood were discovered in the home of Cllr. Yancy at the amazement of the public. He said the traditional doctors were accompanied by the Sheriff of the Harper Magisterial Court, backed by officers of the Liberia National Police.

The youth leader said a lady identified as Jestina was found dead recently in a swamp in Plebo, Maryland County, something he said was also reported to President Ellen Johnson during her recent visit in the county.

He said other in police custody include Tatu Clark, head of a local airline, Elisian, Amigo Nubga, Secretary General of the youths in Harper and Isaac More, head of the Rubber Brokers Association.

Tatu Clarke, head of a local airline, Elisian, told this paper in a telephone interview Thursday evening that police have stiil not told him why he was arrested nor has been formally charged.

"Since I was arrested at the airport at 10:45 this morning in the presence of the city mayor and the police commander. no body has told told me why I was arrested."

The youth leader told the New Democrat that Police are in hot pursuit of the former superintendent of Maryland County Lancelot Clarke, and the current Development Superintendent of the county Meletha Garner.

Police are also in pursuit of the regional head of Liberia Refugee Repatriation and Resettlement Commission (LRRRC) Wah Mle
Elliot in connection of the killing.


Alfred Thompson, Hodo Clark, Anthony Gle Elliot, Lucy Harmon, Robert Moore, J.C. Collins are also on police red alert forarrest.
