Police Free Man Accused Of Water Poisoning In Gbarnga

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, August13 (LINA) – Police in Bong County have set free a man who was accused of poisoning wells in Gbarnga, Bong County, for lack of evidence.

The police set free Abendnego Karnga, who turned himself in Tuesday to the Criminal Services Department (CSD), after preliminary investigation showed a lack of evidence, CSD detachment Commander Alvin James disclosed.

Karnga, a cleaner at the C.B Dunbar Hospital in Gbarnga, was on Monday rumored to have been in the custody of police for allegedly poisoning wells in Gbarnga.

Karnga explained that he left Gbarnga on August 6for his farm in Shangbalai, Zota District and did not return to Gbarnga since then, saying he was shocked and confused when he received the news from his brother while on his way to Gbarnga Tuesday.

Ray, as he is commonly called, said the allegation that he took US$500 to kill others through the poisoning of their water is not true, adding “I want those spreading such lies to please stop this.”

He noted: “I have worked with C.B Dunbar for more than a decade without criminal record. Why will people decide to tarnish my hard-earned reputation?”

Meanwhile, Inspector James has lauded Karnga for turning himself in to the police, noting that this is what is expected of every good citizen.

He clarified that the police does not have any criminal record on the man, and vowed to apply Chapter 12.31, 12.33 of the Criminal Procedure Law which prohibits the spreading of falsehood against any citizen.

According to Inspector James, the spreading of falsehood of this kind endangers the lives of people and will not be tolerated.

He promised to launch further investigation into the rumor with the aim of ascertaining its source to deter would-be perpetrators.
