Assistant Justice Minister Wesseh A. WessehMonrovia – The much-publicized “witchcraft case” in Sinoe County involving nine defendants – all men – has been transferred from Greenville to Buchanan, Grand Bassa County for trial. The nine defendants are charged with murder, gang rape, aggravated assault, and criminal facilitation in connection with the humiliation of three ladies accused of witchcraft activities in that part of the country. The three ladies were arrested by some locals in the town of Numomopo on December 12, 2018, stripped naked, paraded on the streets and beaten. One of the women identified as Willette Nyenwlah later died. The defendants were indicted early this year by the Grand Jury of the 3rd Judicial Circuit Court sitting in the provincial capital, Greenville Sinoe County.
