LIBERIA: MAN ARRESTED FOR IMPERSONATING AFL SOLDIER IN BUCHANAN

Date:

BUCHANAN – Police authority in Grand Bassa County on Saturday, April 22, 2023, arrested a man impersonating an arm-carrying officer of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).

According to a local television station in the county, suspect Thomas G. Wesley, a resident of Montserrado County, the arrest was triggered when officers of the AFL were doing normal inspections in Buchanan ahead of President George Weah’s visit to the County.

The truck on which Wesley was riding was en route from Grand Kru County to Montsereado County but reportedly decided to use the Pearchuzohn Community road where officers of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL)  captured the suspect.

Accordingly, the suspect’s appearance led the AFL Grand Bassa Commander Andrew Zoegbo to question the accused who did not give satisfactory answers and was unable to produce his army’s identification card as requested, thus creating more suspicions.

Upon a sustained interrogation, the accused man (Thomas Wesley) who had a substance that looked like a firearm with alleged drug substances in his possession confessed that he allegedly took the items from an unknown person while on his way to Grand Kru County.

The suspect reportedly confessed to AFL Zoagbo of not being an army officer and impersonating an army officer.

His admission led to the subsequent arrest by the AFL officers that forwarded him to the Liberia National Police headquarters in Buchanan for further probing.

The suspect, speaking in an exclusive Ablee-Jay Media interview, expressed that he was a messenger who took some lights allegedly belonging to President George Weah to Grand Kru County.

He accused the CDC Party Chairman of allegedly sending him to carry the lights but arrested what appeared to be armed bush while en route.

When contacted, the CDC Party Chairman Mulbah Morlu’s phone rang without response. Source: AbleejayTV
