The Liberian government has announced a $15,000 total cash reward for any useful information for the arrest of recent high-profile murderers in the capital, Monrovia.
Mr Ledgerhood Rennie, Liberia’s Minister of Information and Culture disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, November 7.
According to Rennie, the Liberia National Police has named Christian Anderson and William Anderson (also known as “Baby Shad”) as initial persons of interest in the investigation.
Rennie said that the government would set aside $5,000 for actionable information on each of the persons of interest.
“Last week, the Ministry of Justice ordered post mortem examinations on the remains of John Tubman, Maude Elliot and William Tolbert, III – who were all discovered dead in their homes – as part of a full scale investigation.
“The Joint Security of Liberia, under the chairmanship of the Ministry of Justice, is scheduled to convene on Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2021, to review the general security situation in the country.
“The public is assured that the Joint Security is working around the clock to solve three recent murder cases in Monrovia and provide enhanced security to the public,” Rennie said.
Rennie said that the Government condemns the unwarranted politicisation of the death of these individuals.
The Minister said that the Government emphasised that it took seriously the death of any Liberian.
Rennie noted that the national Security Apparatus had been mandated by President George Weah to explore all necessary legal means within its authority to ensure the safety of all Liberians and foreign residents in the country.
