Police in Monrovia have charged with murder a 19-year-old man for allegedly stabbing to death, 22-year-old Fickee Suah.
Shortly after the police charged Bill George, commonly known as “Bill Clinton,” he was forwarded to the Monrovia City Court to stand trial.
At yesterday’s hearing, it was learnt that suspect Clinton was transferred to prison because the crime of murder disqualifies him for a bail.
Clinton is said to be a part of “Crack City Crew,” a notorious group that allegedly stabbed to death victim Suah on December 24, 2016 in the 13th Street Community in Sinkor.
Court documents allege that on the fateful December 24, Suah and one of his friends, identified as Calvin Langama went to 9th Street to witness a musical concert that was hosted on a basketball court by a community group.
At the concert, the document claims that a member of the so-called “Crack City Crew” snatched Langana’s cell phone which prompted a fist fight between the two.
During the brawl, four other suspected members of the crew began to flog Langama which annoyed Suah and prompted him to join the fight to defend his friend who was under attack.
In the melee, the record added that members of the crew stabbed Suah on his left shoulder close to his neck and immediately fled the scene.
Suah was rushed to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Center (JFKMC) where doctors pronounced him dead upon arrival.
Shortly after the incident occurred, LNP officers with support from community residents raided the 9th Street vicinity in search of suspected members of the ‘Crack City Crew’ that were believed to be involved in Suah’s death.
According to the document, following a few days of intensive search, the four suspects including Clinton were arrested.
At the investigation, Clinton explained that while he was watching the concert, he reportedly heard screaming coming from around a light pole opposite to where he was standing.
“Later, I went there and saw some of my friends standing a few feet from the group of people who had also gone to the scene of the noise,” suspect Clinton said.
The document further alleges that Clinton said he heard some of his friends arguing among themselves as to how “Alpha was telling Daddy you stabbed the man bad way. Daddy you killed the man.”
At that time, Clinton also quoted another friend, identified as Zamkalanka, telling Alpha and Daddy to go to hell, “because Clinton should have cut the man’s whole head off for acting rude on Daddy.”
The court records allege that Clinton denied any involvement, but said, “He was arrested while attempting to escape from Monrovia to Nimba County.”
According to the document, Clinton alleged that because he was afraid after hearing that some of his friends were reportedly caught and beaten by an angry crowd, he felt that Monrovia was not safe for him, “so I decided to escape, but I was arrested in Paynesville by the police.”
