The Monrovia City Court on Monday, June 4, 2018 acted on a writ from the Liberia National Police (LNP) by sending to jailed Abraham F. Fallah, age 34, over his alleged involvement in the death of John Albert in Kpelle Town community on the Air Field in Sinkor.
Fallah is currently at the Monrovia Central prison or south beach pending court trial as a result of a situation which took place on May 29, 2017 in the Kpelle Town community on the Air Field in Sinkor.

The act by defendant Fallah according to the LNP was deliberate, calculated to hinder delays or prevent the discovery and a complete indifference to the value of human life.
The LNP charge sheet noted that after suspect Papie Vinton stroke the head of deceased John Albert with the stick, he gave the murder weapon and the face cap to defendant Abraham Fallah and they absconded from the crime scene.
