Liberia: Mulbah Morlu, Rep. Acarous Gray under Police Investigation in Connection to Beating of IGP for Operations


MONROVIA – Police Inspector General Patrick Sudue disclosed Thursday, August 22, that Representative Moses Acarous Gray (CDC- District #8 Montserrado County) and CDC Chairman Mulbah Morlu are undergoing investigation in connection with the alleged beating of Deputy Police Inspector General for Operations, 102, Marvin Sarkor.

According to Mr. Sudue, who appeared before Plenary of the Senate to answer to inquiry about increase in violence activities in the country with specific incidences in Districts #15, #10 and #13 in Montserrado County Morlu and Gray are link to one of the incident. 

IG Sudue and others were invited to the Senate following an invitation derived from a communication written by Senator Nyonblee Karnga Lawrence of Grand Bassa County.

In his explanation, the Police IG Sudue informed senators that investigations into incidences of violence are being delayed because people involved are not cooperating with the Police investigators.

“We wrote Representative Gray and he said he will come if the need be.”

Representative Gray and Chairman Morlu are linked to the beating and humiliation of Deputy Police Inspector General, who had gone to the headquarters of the CDC in Congotown to restore law and order as violence flared between partisans of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and the collaborating political parties, who had gathered at Liberty Party headquarters to celebrate pre-election victories.

The attack against Col. Sackor on that Wednesday, July 31st, is said to have occurred when he entered the CDC party premises following police’s response to the violent situation.

Col. Sackor suffered wounds in his chest while his bodyguard also got injured as a result of the attack at the CDC party headquarters. Since the incident was reported, the police have yet to arrest any persons of interests in the assault on Col. Sackor, even though it was confirmed that the Deputy Police Chief complained of being attacked in the ruling party’s compound.

Police Spokesman Moses Carter claimed that the Deputy Police Chief was not definite in naming the suspects that attacked him in the CDC party’s compound.
