Liberia: Vai Governor Complains of Threat On His Life

The Vai Governor of Fanima otherwise known as Clara Town on the Bushrod Island has complained of an alleged threat on his life by some Nigerians. In a communication to Justice Minister Christina Tah, Governor Varflee Sirleaf alleged that some Nigerian citizens residing on the Somalia drive went to his residence at Clara Town in the presence of people within the community damaging chairs and other personal belongings.

Governor Sirleaf alleged that the Nigerians threatened to kill him, because their house was marked by the ministry of public works as a trend to recondition the road of which he has no knowledge of.

The Vai Governor then appealed to the Ministry of justice to have the men including their head, Mr. Eugben Chuks identified to make clarifications about the alleged threat on his life.

In the communication he noted, "What I am talking about Madam Minister is that my life is at stake and I am not pleased until I take legal steps against them in court. They said that they will not relent until they see that their plans have been implemented to their satisfaction."
