-Over The Brutalization of Travelers
By Esau J. Farr
Report from Nimba County says fourteen persons are currently undergoing Police investigation for allegedly brutalizing stranded travelers in their areas.
According to a local journalist in the county, the victims were traveling toward Grand Gedeh County through a town in Nimba when one of the tires of the car on which they were traveling got flattened forcing them to go in search of someone to repair their tire.
The ELBC correspondent in the area explained that it was at that point that the men on the car decided to go to a nearby house to inquire for a tire-repair center.
It is reported that upon hearing the men banking on a door, some men indoor reportedly mistook them for robbers and therefore came out and have them arrested and taken to the Poro Bush (Bush school) where they were reportedly brutalized by people believed to be followers of the Chief Zoe.
The journalist has however reported that the men were later released and taken to the Jackson F. Doe Memorial Hospital where they are seeking medical treatments.
Those being investigated have reportedly admitted to the allegations levied against them and pleaded for mercy blaming it on the works of the devil. TNR
