Liberia: Cash for tips to solve murders

The Liberian Government has announced a total of $15, 000 cash reward for any useful and factual information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators of recent high profile murders in Monrovia, the capital.

$5, 000 is set aside 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 R. Tolbert, III – who were all discovered dead in their homes – as part of a full scale investigation.

The Liberia National Police has named Christian Byron Anderson and William V.S, Anderson ( also known as “Baby Shad”) as initial persons of interest to the investigation.

The public is also encouraged to come to the police headquarters, as their identities and rewards will be kept confidential.

The Joint Security of Liberia, under the chairmanship of the Ministry of Justice, is scheduled to convene on Tuesday 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. 

Meanwhile, the government deplores the unwarranted politicization of the death of these individuals, describing it as insensitive to the families of the deceased.

The government emphasizes that it takes seriously the death of any Liberian and is therefore leaving no stone unturned in getting to the bottom of the matter.

The national security apparatus has been mandated by President George M. Weah to implore all necessary legal means within its authority to ensure the safety and well-being of all Liberians and foreigners resident in the country.
