The Government of Liberia (GOL) through the National Security Council (NSC) has ordered the arrest of ten (10) persons in connection with “security threats” at the Liberian-Ivorian border. Those ordered arrested by the government are: Charles Ble Goude, Didier Gbagbo (no link to former Ivorian leader Laurent Gbagbo), Isaac Sayou Chegbo “alias” Bob Marley, Amos Cheyee, and Bobby Sharpee “alias” Julu.
The rest are: Ofore Diah, Tailey Gladier “alias” Igwe, Abenego Zleh, Nehzee Barway and “General” Congbe Norman “alias” Col. One Way. According to the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism (MICAT) boss, Mr. Lewis G. Brown, the men ordered arrested are to turn themselves over as soon as possible because security forces are after them.
He made the disclosure Thursday, June 14, 2012 at MICAT’s regular press briefing held at the Charles Gbenyon Press Hall in Monrovia. He said the ‘wanted men’ are persons of interest concerning the conflict in neighboring Ivory Coast.’ Minister Brown pointed out that the men identified pose security threats to the two Mano River Union (MRU) countries. He noted that the relationship between Liberia and La Cote D’Ivoire is not souring as being speculated in some quarters.
“The National Security Council (NSC) has endorsed specific addition measures to the border situation. One of these measures is to order security forces to identify and arrest persons of interest to both countries who maybe within the territory of the Republic of Liberia. Ten (10) individuals have been identified as persons of interest. Security forces are going out searching for them. We are asking these individuals to turn themselves over,” he maintained.
