LIBERIA: JULI ENDEE’S LEGAL FIGHT AGAINST PROPHET KEY COULD END IN BREEZE

Date:

MONROVIA – It seems Liberia’s Cultural Ambassador Juli Endee’s legal fight against popular Facebook podcaster Nayapougma Oldpa Yeazeahn aka ‘Prophet Key’ could end up in breeze as a brief note from the office of the City Solicitor of Montserrado is expected to be filed to Monrovia City Court today asking for discontinuity into the legal matter filed by Madam Julie Endee against Prophet Key.

City Solicitor Alfred Bandiyo, according to information gathered Smart News Liberia is filing a note of noli prose- quote of the charges filed against ‘Prophet Key’ on grounds that the matter lacks sufficient evidence to proceed.

It can be recalled Prophet Key, renowned for insulting females and using derogatory remarks on his targets was taken into custody on the court’s orders on Thursday, Feb. 15. The arrest warrant was authorized by Magistrate Ben Banco in Monrovia on Monday, February 5, 2024. The warrant orders the immediate apprehension of Nayapougma Oldpa Yeazeahn, also known as Prophet Key.

The writ states, “You are hereby ordered to arrest Nayapougma Oldpa Yeazeahn, aka Prophet Key, and promptly bring him before the Monrovia City Court, located at the Temple of Justice Building in Montserrado County. He is to answer to the charges of Criminal Coercion, Menacing, and Disorderly Conduct, as alleged in the complaint and under oath.”

According to the official complaint lodged by Ambassador Endee, Prophet Key had deliberately and with malicious intent, made statements in a video podcast posted on social media in December 2023. In the video, Prophet Key alleged that Ambassador Endee had engaged in prostitution and had sexual relations with former President Charles Taylor.

However, his legal team successfully argued that his status as a public figure, combined with his voluntary appearance before the court, demonstrated his commitment to honoring any future court mandates.

During the hearing, Prophet Key’s lawyers presented evidence of his widespread popularity and influence. This, they argued, made him a recognizable and respected figure within the community.

The court, acknowledging the unique circumstances surrounding Prophet Key’s case, agreed that his reputation and standing within society made him a low flight risk. Consequently, the court decided to release him without requiring a bond, a decision that surprised many observers.

Earlier this year, Julie Endee, acting in her capacity as Liberia’s Cultural Ambassador, filed a US$ 5 million lawsuit against Nayapougma Oldpa Yeazeahn, accusing him of criminal coercion, menacing, and disorderly conduct.
