MONROVIA — An ex-general of the defunct Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia (INPFL) of Sen. Prince Johnson has threatened to arrest and turn over the Nimba senator to the International Community over his refusal to cater to their well-being since the end of the civil war.
The INPFL was a rebel group that participated in the First Liberian Civil War under the leadership of Sen. Johnson. It was a breakaway faction of former president Charles Taylor’s National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL).
Young Gblorgbay claimed he and several former generals of INPFL in Nimba County began the “revolution” with Sen. Johnson but the Nimba senator has abandoned them despite winning two elections.
We have turned to armed robbers to survive while Senator Johnson is enjoying the dividends of the civil war, Gblorgbay said.
The ex-INPFL general, who is regarded to many in Nimba as a ‘son’ to Senator Johnson because of his involvement with INPFL during the country’s decade long civil war, said he would arrest Senator Johnson and turn him over to the International Community to face the War and Economic Crimes Court for acts committed during the war.
