MONROVIA-The Women NGOs Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL) says it is deeply saddened and regrets the incident reported from the residence of former Chief Justice, Cllr. Gloria Musu Scott in Brewerville, District 17, Montserrado County on February 22, 2023 at around 9 – 10pm during the evening hours.

“We were informed firsthand by the survivor that an armed robber invaded her home on Wednesday, February 22, 2023, after two failed attempts on the 8th & 9th of February 2022 respectively, resulting to the killing of one of her nieces and the severe wounding of another who were stabbed multiple times by the robber. A promising young lady lost her live in such a gruesome manner.

“The Constitution of Liberia, the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights give all citizens the right to protection. It is so saddening that the Former Chief Justice, Cllr. Gloria Musu Scott wasn’t given protection after two attempts on her residence,” a WONGOSOL release said.

“We strongly condemn this barbaric act and therefore, call on the Liberia National Police to speedily investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice. We, under the umbrella of WONGOSOL in solidarity with all other women, condemn the repeated acts of violence perpetrated against women and children in Liberia. We are following this case with keen interest, while we closely watch the government of Liberia, through the Liberia National Police to act appropriately,” the release concluded.
