Accused of being in possession of human skeleton, an angry mob beat two suspects to death, while a third is being treated at a medical facility in Ganta.In the recent mob violence in Ganta, Nimba County that resulted into the gruesome killing of two suspected “heartmen,” (ritual killers), the Liberia National Police (LNP) has charged 16 persons with multiple charges, and sent them to the Eighth Judicial Circuit Court in Sanniquellie for prosecution.According to the LNP Nimba County Crime Services Department (CSD), the 16 people were charged with murder, criminal conspiracy, and criminal mischief due to their connection with the recent mob violence in the county.A police source informed the Daily Observer that there were several persons arrested, but after thorough investigation and screening, 16 were held liable for being at the center of the violence saga, while some were placed on parole to report regularly to the police.On March 20, 2019, a large group of residents, among them some women, reportedly intercepted and ransacked a taxi cab that was transporting seven suspected murderers in Ganta, pulled the suspects and mobbed two of them to death.According to information, the seven men were arrested in Bleevalay, Sea Gbeyi Administrative District for being allegedly connected to a skeleton that was discovered in a creek near the town.No one has yet identified the person whose skeleton was discovered, but the entire issue flared up during confusion between two groups of people that resulted to a fistfight.In the quarrel, one of the men accused his friend of being a witchcraft, while the other one too accused his friend of being involved with the killing of an unknown man that was later buried in a nearby creek.Following a tipoff to police assigned in Saclepea, central Nimba County, concerning the startling revelation, the officers dropped the fighting case and mounted investigation into the alleged killing, thereby arresting all those linked to the act.Several persons were detained for interrogation and, because of the nature of the case, the Saclepea Police Detail decided to send the suspects to Sanniquellie for further investigation.Based on that, the police hired a commercial cab to transport the suspects. However, while en route to Sanniquellie, the taxi reportedly developed mechanical fault, thus making an abrupt stop before entering Ganta.At that point, some residents, among them commercial motorcyclists, who heard of the story, reportedly mobbed two of the suspects to death, while another one that was badly wounded in the attack, was transferred to a nearby health facility for treatment.Since the mob incident, police effected several arrests and later released those who they discovered were not involved, while those they investigated and established were directly connected to the mob violence sent to court for prosecution.Our investigation continues.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The Duke later joked he had felt a little underdressed compared to their traditional costumes, saying: “I was very impressed. Next time we should turn up in a bit more of a ceremonial costume.”The royal couple then spoke with local dignitaries, asking them about their roles in Victoria and praising the event and the “super clean” red carpet.The Duchess also shared her excitement at being there, saying: “Both of us love mountains and there seems to be a lot of them here. We can’t wait to explore. There is a lot to do in a short period of time.” The Duke of Cambridge and Prince George Credit:Chris Jackson/Getty Images Proclaiming their stay at Government House “perfect”, she answered questions about her children, disclosing they had been “super excited about the fact they were going to sleep on a plane”.Following speeches and a performance from the Victoria Children’s Choir, she accepted flowers from 13-year-old Victoria Foster, who had been chosen by charity Children’s Wish, asking her about her life and school.”She also talked a little bit about her children,” said Victoria. “She said she was hoping they were asleep right now.”Monique Girard, a 23-year-old full-time mother originally from South Africa, said the Duchess had offered her some advice for her six-month-old daughter, Scarlett, whom she was carrying in a sling. The Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Charlotte Credit:Chris Jackson/Getty Images The Duchess of Cambridge watches first nation dancersCredit:Dominic Lipinski/PA She told one first-time mother, who brought her six-month-old daughter along, that her job would “get better” as the little girl grew older.The family of four had arrived in Victoria just an hour earlier, before the Prince and Princess were tucked up safely in Government House so their parents could fulfil their official duties.The Duchess told one member of the public she wished she could have brought the children with her, saying Prince George in particular would have loved the bright lights all over the parliament buildings. “Let me caution you from my own experience: if they are anything like our kids, getting them back on the plane after a visit to the beautiful west coast will really be a challenge.”In his speech straight afterwards, the Duke said: “Catherine and I are delighted to be back in Canada. “When we were here last time, we had been married only three months. The warm welcome that you gave us at that important moment in our lives meant a lot to us, and we have never forgotten it. “That is why we are so pleased that George and Charlotte can be with us in Canada this time round, beginning their own lifetime of friendship with this wonderful country.” They may be royalty, but it appears even Prince George and Princess Charlotte are not immune to the prospect of a little mischief.The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have spoken of their excited children during the first day of their tour to Canada, joking they hoped the youngsters were not “tearing up Government House” in their absence.The Duchess said they had been “super excited” about their trip on an aeroplane together, as she shared parenting advice with other mothers who had turned out to see the event. Aurora Vandall, a 36-year-old mother of a nine-month-old from Victoria, said she had spoken to the Duke to welcome him to Canada.”He said, ‘I hope the children aren’t tearing up Government House right now’,” she disclosed. “She asked me about Scarlett and how old she was. When I said six months, she said that after this stage it will get easier. It will get better.”It was so nice.” Loreen Topping added: “She [the duchess] told me she wished she had brought Prince George down tonight because he would have loved all the lights.” She later said they had enjoyed a “very good tea” before dropping off to sleep.The first official event of the Canadian royal tour was something of a family affair altogether.Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister, used his speech to highlight the family feel of the trip, the first overseas tour for the family as a foursome.”As any parent who has travelled with children knows, it’s a whole different experience when you bring your children with you,” he said, to cheers.

The red carpet event saw the Duke and Duchess greet veterans, lay a wreath at the Cenotaph and enjoy a performance by the Lekwungen Traditional Dancers, from the Songhees Nation, and Esquimalt Singers and Dancers, from the Esquimalt Nation.
