Impersonation-Charm-Officials - Man Nabbed for ‘Chopping’ Woman's US$1,200 For Govt Job


By Justice R. Clarke

MONROVIA, April 22 (LINA) - Police in Monrovia are interrogating a man they named as Hit Campbell on allegation of impersonating as a confidant of State Minister Nathaniel McGill.

Campbell, a resident of Nagbe Town, ELWA Community, is accused of blindfolding a woman in Sinkor from whom he received US1,200 for appointment in government, telling her that he was sent by Mininster McGill.

Police spokesman Moses Carter has disclosed that Campbell was arrested on April 18, and he will be sent to court for trial following the investigation.

Upon his arrest, Campbell allegedly informed the police that he was sent by a man he only named as “Hilton” or “Zohee”, who, according to him, has been acting in the name of the Minister of State.

Campbell's arrest comes at the time when persons believed to be opposition figures took to social media saying President George Weah had suspended Min. McGill.

However, the connectors did not say what prompted the “suspension”.

Over the weekend, the Minister of State, Minister of Justice, the President's legal advisor, and the Managing Director of National Housing Authority left for Accra, Ghana, to attend an official business.

In a related development, the Monrovia City Corporation recently alerted the Police that a man identified as Perry Johnson was carrying himself as Mayor Jefferson Koijee, and dubiously taking money from his subjects.

The Liberia News Agency understands that Perry Johnson has a long-standing history of engaging in such act, sometimes with female accomplices. In the past, he impersonated as staff of then-UNMIL Radio, charming mainly senior government officials into giving him money or scratch cards.

He was one time arrested and detained by police for attempting to trick ex-Finance Ministry official Dixon Seboe, now Montserrado lawmaker.

Perry is yet to be arrested in relation to the last alleged impersonation as another Koijee.

Liberia: Dr. Togba-Nah Tipoteh New Year's Message

  On New Year's day, Dr. Togba-Nah Tipoteh wrote a powerful message to the people of Liberia. Check it out below:  Some people are saying that there is nothing good about the New Year 2022 because nearly all of the people of Liberia are suffering in the misery of the poverty pandemic coupled with the corona pandemic. But let it be said to these people that Ngala (Our Creator in the Kpelle language) does not give us a burden that we can not bear. This New Year Message is directed at raising awareness to motivate people to bear the burden of the suffering by doing the right thing. So, we are grateful to Ngala for giving us yet another chance to do the right thing.
