Mob Action Leaves Man Seriously Wounded

first_imgAdam Dolo, believed to be in his late 20s, was seen with blood running down his face and surrounded by a group of men at the CellCom office hosting the community Radio Kergheamahn on the evening of July 10.This was in Ganta, Nimba County where Dolo was reportedly mobbed by a group of men in the LPMC Community and brought to the radio station to seek his relatives or parents.The action, according to the perpetrators, was carried out when they suspected Dolo of stealing a motorbike and other valuables.“This man has been stealing people’s things and had stolen my brother’s motorbike. Stealing is his habit and we will get it out of him tonight,” said one of the men who beat the accused.Adam was seen exhausted as a result of the beating from the LPMC Community to the GSM company office. Yet the men continued the mob action without sympathy or conscience that their action would lead to his death.Adam told the Daily Observer in a quivering voice that “I was in the video club when this other man came to call me, but I refused to respond to his call. After some time I walked out and decided to take the back route, and it was when the group got behind me and started to beat me, calling me rogue, rogue.”Regarding the motorbike issue, Adam said, “I borrowed a bike from one of my friends from Karnwee to ride to Kpala where my relative died. While going I took two passengers on it and on my return, I could not return the bike but used it to take passengers to Gbarnga. It is in Gbarnga I was arrested for not having a license for the bike and it is over five months now that the owner and I have not met.”He could locate where the bike was, but denied any involvement in stealing bikes or other valuable properties as alleged by the group that mobbed him.There was no police presence in the area where he was held. The only help to Adam Dolo was a woman who works with CellCom. She prevented the mob from beating so he would not die in the compound.Despite Ms Lorena Zarkpah’s intervention, the group persistently beat on him. Security guards guiding the company then came to his rescue and took him into the fence with the assurance that they would turn him over to police authorities.Up to press time last night, it was not clear what the fate of the accused was since those who rescued him from the mob were not on duty to account for him.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
