Top Ex-Cop Arrested, Sent To Court On Multiple Crimes
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, August 15 (LINA) - Former Senior Police Officer Samuel T. Nimely has been arrested, charged with multiple crimes and forwarded to court for prosecution.

According to Lewis Norman, acting LNP Chief of Press and Public Affairs, former Chief Superintendent Nimely was charged with crimes ranging from criminal attempt to commit murder and aggravated assault.

Chief Superintend Norman told the Liberia News Agency Monday that Nimely, who recently moved to the Rehab Community in Paynesville on August 2, filed a complaint that thieves have on several occasions intruded his home and made away with several valuables, including a generator, battery cable, chairs and other items.

He explained that suspect Nimely on August 11 went to the Zone Eight Police Station and filed a complaint about an alleged burglary at his house by criminals and requested the assistance of uniformed Police officers to proceed with him to an area in Thinker’s Village which, he claimed, was a criminal hideout.

Chief Superintend Norman explained that upon the arrival of defendant Nimely and the uniformed Police officers at the alleged criminal hideout, some men began to flee from a dilapidated building believed to be a ghetto.

While the Police officers were in pursuit of them, defendant Nimely discharged a firearm, wounding an unarmed man identified as Emmanuel Kieh, who did not pose any threat and was trying to escape the scene.

According to the police spokesman, investigation further revealed that defendant Nimely used a Remington rifle that was registered at the offices of the Superintendent of Montserrado County for hunting purpose since 2013.

Chief Superintend Norman disclosed that Police probe further revealed that defendant Nimely did not wait after filing his complaint at the Police station but decided to effect his own arrest, and in the process discharged a firearm against an unarmed victim.

Meanwhile, according to Chief Superintend Norman, the victim is currently at the JKF Medical Hospital undergoing treatment.

The Police have described the act by defendant Nimely as a violation of the Penal Code and forwarded the defendant to the Paynesville Magisterial Court for prosecution.
