The President Pro-tempore of the Liberian Senate and Chairman of the Gbarpolu Legislative caucus, Armah Zolu Jallah has condemned recent wave of ritualistic killings in Henry town, Korninga Chiefdom, Gbarpolu County.
Senator Jallah said the news of citizens been killed in the most gruesome manner or chased by some unknown individuals is barbaric and unacceptable.
A release from the Office of the Senate Pro-tempore quoted the Gbarpolu County lawmaker as stressing that the continuous practice of ritualistic killings beat his imagination and has created serious fear among citizens.
“What worries me the most is that the Liberia National Police is yet to arrest perpetrators. It will also interest you to note that people who are committing this unwholesome act live with us in some of our communities and some of our citizens know them and harbors them as well,” Senator Jallah.
He said the act of shedding someone or individuals who have committed a crime is also equivalent to guilt.
“It is our hope that those citizens who are being mutilated could have helped in the building of our community. It is very unfortunate that even in 2017; we have to still talk about ritual killings when other people in Africa are busy developing their countries and making future plans for future generations,” Senator Jallah indicated.
