Liberia: Hardcore Criminals Sentence Over False Alarm Plot to Assassinate Senator Weah

Monrovia — Three men who alleged that they were sent by stalwarts of the Unity Party to assassinate Coalition of Democratic Change George Weah are spending their first night behind bars at the Monrovia Central Prison.

On Tuesday the three were charged with criminal malevolence, false public alarm, false statement, false report to law enforcement and disorderly conduct.

The charge sheet revealed that, George Barry, alias Ivorian, Mustapha Sesay, Oldpa Weh claimed they were hired by businessman George Kailondo who was accordingly acting in concert with Defense Minister Brownie Samukai and Vice President Joe Boakai to create commotion during the CDC political rally that took place on August 19 which would have led to the taking down of Weah by hired Russian assassins.

Mr. Kailondo is the UP Montserrado County Campaign Chairman while Minister Samukai is a staunch supporter of Vice President Boakai's bid for the presidency.

Mr. Kailondo termed the allegation as rubbish that deserves not to be dignified.

'Ivorian', claimed to be the leader of the trio, said he was contacted by Kailondo who he has known for a very long time. According to him, when Kailondo called him he also contacted Moustapha and Long John to accompany him to see Kailondo at his residence.

'Ivorian' further explained while they were with Mr. Kailondo, when he received a call after which he came back to them asking, "The papay say y'all sure y'all can do it?"

This, he said, gave him the hint that the Vice President was involved in the conspiracy.

For Mustapha Sesay, he recounted that he was hired in 2014 to cause instability at the PHP between supporters of George Weah and Robert Sirleaf during the special senatorial elections.


"Since 2014, we have been incited and hired to do things that we were not to do. We did those things because of life conditions in our country, but we were not willing to do those things," he said.

"We were told that George Weah needed to be assassinated because we have done it before and they know we can do it again.

During the night of the CDC's launching, we passed at the headquarters, but people identified us because the pickup was not tainted," he said.

He said following the identification and coupled with their lifestyles, they became afraid and decided to take precaution.

"We continue to receive calls of encouragement that we should not be afraid," he said.

During the police investigation, it was revealed that witness Emmanuel Dahn, Monsterrado County District 7 representative candidate was the first contact of the trio in early August at the Monsterrado County branch.
