UP “FEMALE GENERAL” QUEEN JOHNSON ‘ABSCONDS POLICE CUSTODY’

Date:

MONROVIA, LIBERIA – Police in Monrovia have announced that the incoming ruling Unity Party (UP) female member who was arrested over the weekend in connection to the death of a fallen staunch member of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), 34-year-old Joshua Solomon, Ms. Peaches Queen Johnson alias “Female General,” has absconded police custody.

Following her arrest downtown Monrovia on Friday evening, Queen Johnson, as the UP zealous female member is popularly called, surreptitiously escaped the premises of the Headquarters of the Liberia National Police (LNP), in a vehicle allegedly driven by a senior officer of LNP, Ithamar Harding, according to police spokesman Moses Carter.

Carter told a press conference Saturday that senior police officer Ahmad had earlier requested junior officers of the LNP that effectuated Queen Johnson’s arrest to turn her over for him to have conveyed her at the police central headquarters on Capitol Hill, Monrovia.

However, the police spokesman added that Ithamar failed to hand over the “Female General” at the police Charge of Quarters as was expected of him to have done, for her interrogation to have begun.

Instead, Carter narrated that senior officer Ithamar allegedly whisked Queen Johnson off the premises of the LNP Headquarters, and her whereabouts remain unknown.

The Liberia National Police is urging well-meaning Liberians, who are respecters of the law to assist the LNP in ensuring Queen Johnson faces police investigation, according to Carter, who stated that the LNP’s quest to ensure that the “Female General” faces interrogation remains unbending.

“This is not about witch-hunting; this is not about going after an individual on the basis of their alignments. It is about ensuring that when anyone comes into conflict with the rule of law, said person is made to account for their actions,” said Carter, who disclosed that LNP has already written the leadership of the Unity Party on the whereabouts of the party’s “Female General” but is yet to get any response from the incoming ruling party.

The LNP says it looks forward to the cooperation of all Liberians in ensuring the investigation regarding Joshua’s death reaches a logical conclusion, pointing out that Queen Johnson remains innocent until proven guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction.

“We are asking her to come to face police investigation and say what she knows or what she has to say on the fateful incident right in Sinkor that allegedly led to the death of Joshua Solomon – and so we urge her, for the sake of the respect for the rule of law, to avail herself to the Liberia National Police,” Carter emphasized.
