Police in Margibi Investigate Commercial Driver’s Mysterious Death

KAKATA, Margibi – Police in Kakata are investigating circumstances that led to the mysterious death of a commercial bus driver who was stabbed to death by an unknown person on Wednesday, February 21 at about 2:00 a.m.

According to reports, Abu Sesay, 32, was stabbed around Sapoe, a local entertainment center in Kakata.

Eric Myten, a watchman working for the Federation of Road Transport Union at the bus and taxi terminal, said Sesay had gone to the terminal at around 1:40 a.m. Myten said he, Sesay, and another commercial driver were chatting for a moment before Myten briefly ran across the road, only to return to see Sesay with blood pouring from his neck.

Myten told the police crime investigators that Sesay was helpless and could not utter a word. Two other commercial drivers then rushed Sesay to the C. H. Rennie Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

No arrest has been made in connection with the crime, but the Liberia National Police detachment in Kakata has launched a probe into the circumstances that led to Sesay’s mysterious death.

His death now means that there are three deaths in Margibi within a two-month period that remain unsolved. On January 4, the body of 29-year-old man was discovered in the Salala Rubber Corporation plantation where the police said there had been no foul play, although a 15-man coroner’s jury detected foul play.

On January 8, the decomposed body of a 62-year-old man identified as William Siafa who was contracted as a watchman for the Salala Rubber Corporation was discovered two weeks after he went missing. He had gunshot wounds as well body parts extracted.

The police are yet to bring a single suspect to book in those cases.
