Student,19, Arrested  For ‘Murder’ In Kakata

By Richard Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, April 7 (LINA) - Police in Kakata, Margibi County have arrested a 19-year-old boy for allegedly stabbing his friend to death.

Isaac Dolo, a 9th Grader of the Lango Lippay High School, reportedly got into an argument with victim Moses Kolleh, 22, at a local entertainment center that resulted into a fist fight.

During the fight, which occurred at about 10 p.m. Sunday, April 6, victim Kolleh hurriedly tried to leave the scene when he was allegedly stabbed in the back by suspect Dolo.

The deceased was a graduating senior of the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) in Kakata.

Suspect Dolo reportedly told the Crime Services Department of the Liberia National Police during preliminary investigation that he did not know he had killed his friend Kolleh.

The body of Kolleh has been deposited at the Charles H. Rennie Memorial Hospital in Kakata.

In a related development, another student of the Booker Washington Institute, Kesselly Howard has reportedly gone missing.

Student Howard, who is also a senior student of the Automotive Department of BWI, has not been seen since April 3, 2014.

Angry students of BWI early Monday stormed the Kakata Police Station to demand the whereabouts of their fellow student.

They accused the police and the City Mayor of not applying efforts to find their missing schoolmate.

Police admitted receiving information about the student on April 3, but said they needed more time to investigate the whereabouts of student Howard.
