281

Monrovia-The Secretary General of the Unity Party and member of the Coalition  of Political Parties, Mohammed Ali  has been declared wanted by the  Liberia National Police for comments he made on  his  a face book page early this month on delay to certificate Brownie Samukai, of Lofa county.

Part of his Ali’s post said:  “Dear National Elections Commission, we understand the ploy. But try it and you will see what is gonna be the end result.”

But Police Spokesman, Moses Carter told a local radio talk show on Friday that Ali was wanted and any place he is seen, he would be arrested.

“All I can say is that Mo Ali is a wanted man. He was invited to the station but last minute to time, his lawyer told us  that he was not well,” he said.

In recent times, there has been  series of legal cases against former  Defense Minister under madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s regime, Brownie  Samukai of illegally taking over one Million United States  dollars from the account  of the Armed Forces of Liberia.

The Supreme court ordered  him to restitute  the amount or risk imprisonment. He agreed to the ruling of the court.

As the NEC was about to certificate him, there was a prohibition filed against him by the leader  of the opposition politician, the Movement for Progressive Change, Simeon Freeman. After few days,  the home of the Associate Justice, Joseph Nangbe was attacked by unknown people. Later, the Headquarter of the NEC was attacked  with petrol bomb by unknown persons.

Carter said  Ali had refused twice to avail himself  to the police, hence his declaration as a wanted person.    That he has been  invited to answer questions in his post. However,  a statement issued by the CPP over the weekend  said Ali will be taken to the police station on Monday, March 22, 2021 with is lawyer and supporters.
