SENATOR PRINCE JOHNSON PAYS TRIBUTE TO VICTIMS OF THE LIBERIAN CIVIL WAR FROM NIMBA

Date:

MONROVIA – Senator Prince Y. Johnson, a prominent Liberian politician and former rebel leader, today visited the Du-port Road grave site in Monrovia to pay his respects to the children from Nimba County who were killed during the 1990 war allegedly by government soldiers.

In a post on his Facebook page, Senator Johnson shared pictures of himself laying wreaths on the graves of the victims.

“We visited the Du-port Road grave site and paid our respects to the children from Nimba County who were forcefully taken from their mothers and killed during the 1990 war by government soldiers,” Senator Johnson wrote.

“We also stopped by the Lutheran Church to lay wreaths on the graves of those who lost their lives in the Lutheran Church Massacre.”

Senator Johnson, who himself killed scores of other Liberian people and President Samuel K. Doe stated that he and his team have been continuing this tradition since 2006 as a way to remember the victims of the war and to show solidarity with their families. He emphasized the importance of praying for a peaceful Liberia every day.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to the bereaved families as we continue to pray for peaceful Liberia every day,” Senator Johnson concluded.

The post sparked mixed reactions from social media users, with some praising Senator Johnson for his efforts to remember the victims of the war, while others questioned his motivations and past actions during the conflict.

Despite the controversies surrounding his political career, Senator Prince Y. Johnson remains a prominent figure in Liberian politics and continues to advocate for peace and reconciliation in the country.

He is a TRC convict for killing hundreds of people during the Liberian civil war as head of the rebel Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia (INPFL). Gen. Johnson kidnapped President Samuel Doe from the ECOWAS peacekeepers’ headquarters and mutilated him in front of cameras.
