The Liberian government has announced a $15,000 cash reward for any information leading to the arrest of perpetrators in recent high-profile murders that occurred in Monrovia.

Ledgerhood Rennie, Liberia’s Minister of Information and Culture, said in a statement on Sunday that the Liberian National Police had identified Christian Anderson and William Anderson (also known as “Baby Shad”) as initial persons of interest in the investigation.

He said that it would set aside $5,000 for actionable information on each of the persons of interest.

“Last week, the Ministry of Justice ordered post mortem examinations on the remains of John Tubman, Maude Elliot and William Tolbert, III – who were all discovered dead in their homes – as part of a full-scale investigation.

“The Government is asking the public to assist the process by calling the following numbers to provide information +231-70800410, +231-770800423, +231-770800102, +231770800103, +231-770800111, +231-770800122, +231-770800109, +231-777900023.

“Members of the public are also encouraged to come to the Police headquarters, as their identities and rewards will be kept confidential.

“The Joint Security of Liberia, under the chairmanship of the Ministry of Justice, is scheduled to convene on Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2021, to review the general security situation in the country.

“The public is assured that the Joint Security is working around the clock to solve three recent murder cases in Monrovia and provide enhanced security to the public,” Rennie said.

Rennie says that the Government strongly condemns the unwarranted politicization of the deaths of these individuals, calling it insensitive to the families.

According to the Minister, the Government takes seriously the death of a Liberian and is therefore working tirelessly to get to the bottom of the situation.

Rennie said the National Security Apparatus had been mandated by President George Weah to utilise all legal means within its authority to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all Liberians and foreigners in the country.
