Assistant Minister for Litigation at the Ministry of Justice, Cllr. Wesseh Alphonsus Wesseh came under huge public criticism and condemnation by several Liberians early Wednesday, when the Justice Ministry official appeared on a local radio station and asserted that he doesn’t know much about the murder case involving NSA Commander Sampson Pennue, accused of allegedly gunning down to death ex-deputy police commander Alexander Saye, in Grand Gedeh County.
In December of 2020, police in Grand Gedeh officially charged the Regional Commander of the National Security Agency (NSA) for Grand Gedeh County, Sampson Pennue, for allegedly killing the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Alexander Saye.
Saye’s lifeless body was discovered with bullet wounds during the morning hours of 27 November 2021, in Grand Gedeh.
The slain police commander was also the Regional Director of the Police Support Unit (PSU) of the Liberia National Police (LNP) assigned in Grand Gedeh.
Howbeit, contrary to the laws of the country regarding the charge of murder, suspect Sampson Pennue, who was incarcerated and awaiting trial, was in June 0f 2021, released on bail.
