Garplay, Nimba Liberia:- Reports received  from Nimba Police Commander Dickson P. Kermukar have it that two citizens are allegedly dead in Garplay Nimba County Electoral District Four after they were involved in fist fight. What led to the fist fight is yet to be confirmed as investigations continues.

According to him, the two citizens got in a fist fight and one of them allegedly used instrument that led to the death of one of them and angry crowd ran after the other and mobbed him. It is not clear if it is a political incident as the police said investigations are ongoing as they have dispatched men there and will update Nimba D-9 TV.

It is also alleged that incumbent Gonpue L. Kargon of CDC is claiming early victory while Ernest Manseah of MDR is equally doing same thus creating more electoral tension in Nimba County Electoral District Four.

It can be recalled that in Nimba District Four, ballot boxes were destroyed as mentioned by the two above candidates on a local radio station in Gompa early on Monday morning, but they are blaming each other supporters for said iincident.

During the 2023 campaign activities, one person lost his life in Nimba County Electoral District Four when citizens clashed over hate speech from Nimba County Senator Elect Prince Y. Johnson against incumbent Gonpue L. Kargon.  

All efforts at the moment to reach out to NEC Liberia upper Nimba team has been done but not getting hold of them as we will keep trying.

On the other hand,what we have been observing  in the Gompa area is the issue of mob violence.

In less than two weeks, two persons have been killed as they have been accused of stealing motorbikes.

We continue to encourage citizens to call ABIC WSR on 2023 for any electoral issues.
