NIMBA COUNTY, LIBERIA-The people of Zao Township, in Nimba County, are asking authorities of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and the entire State Security to take seriously the alleged death treats issued against Chief Justice Francis Korkpor.
Mike Jabateh recently issued the treats in a Facebook podcast, claiming that he was acting on behalf of his ethnic Mandingo people in Ganta, Nimba County.
The people, under the banner, Zao Development Association, condemned the attack on the personality of the Chief Justice, describing it as diabolical and uncivilized.
The group said Chief Justice Korkpor has labored tremendously over the years to uphold the Rule of Law in a post-war conflict situation, and as such, does not deserve such personal attack.
The group said:” It is dismayed that days after the treats were issued against the Chief Justice; there have been no public updates, as to what security authorities have done so far.”
