There are conflicting claims concerning the death of a 13-year old boy who was found hanging in a building yesterday in Iron Factory, Gardnersville. Initial report claimed that the boy identified as Mohammed Kamara, a fourth grade student of the Sekou Sheriff Elementary in the vicinity, was on Tuesday reportedly found hanging, and later removed by an unidentified person upon discovery of the body.
It is alleged that the boy hanged himself but some family members refuted that and said that they suspect foul play as they cannot believe that the child could kill himself.
According to one Mamie Kaba who was in the yard with Mohammed, she was behind the house doing some work but when she came in front of the house, she saw Mohammed already on the ground and motionless.
A relative of the deceased, Cllr. Joseph Fayiah, said after arriving at Mohammed father's house, he was told that Mohammed was taken to Iron Factory Community Clinic but was pronounced dead by doctors.
He said the family members went to Topoe Village Police Station to report the situation and when the police went on the scene, the C.I.D. Commander, Isaac Wright, said he could not do anything about it, so the police walked away while the family members were in tears. Cllr. Fayiah said he was not satisfied with the death of Mohammed
Meanwhile, the Liberia National Police is said to be investigating the matter.
