Samuel Mondeh, 18, reportedly stabbed Prince Amos, 15, several places on his body with a kitchen knife resulting in his death because “he (Prince) appeared like a “gina” to him. According to Buchanan City Court records, the stabbing took place recently in Geebahn Administrative District ‘B,’ in Glakon Statutory District #2, Grand Bassa County.
Mondeh was arrested and charged with murder,” court records state.
“With criminal motive, Mondeh deliberately chased and attacked the victim with a kitchen knife. He proceeded to cut Amos all over his body, including his private parts and eyes, which led to his death in a pool of blood,” the record established.
The court said the act against Amos violates Section14.1 of the Penal Law of Liberia.
Mondeh was subsequently sent to the Upper Buchanan Central Prison pending trial.
Meanwhile, police preliminary investigations disclosed that Mondeh travelled from Garduah Town to Kpuekpah Town, where Amos lived, for a visit.
Mondeh told the officers that when he arrived near Kpuekpah Town, he saw something that appeared before him like a “gina and it began to scare me.”
He said he wasted no time and defended himself by quickly using his kitchen knife to stab the object “all over its body, which resulted to death.”
In view of the explanation, coupled with physical evidence and eyewitnesses’ accounts, police charged Mondeh with murder and he is awaiting trial.
According to online research engine, Wikipedia, jinn (gina), also Romanized as djinn or anglicized as genies, are supernatural creatures in early Arabian and later Islamic mythology and theology. An individual member of the jinn is known as a jinni, djinni, or genie.
They are mentioned frequently in the Quran (the 72nd sura is titled Sūrat al-Jinn) and other Islamic texts and inhabit an unseen world, another universe beyond the known universe.
The Quran says that the jinn are made of a smokeless and “scorching fire,” but are also physical in nature, being able to interact in a tactile manner with people and objects and likewise be acted upon. The jinn, humans, and angels make up the three known sapient creations of God.
Like human beings, the gina can be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent and are believed to have free will like humans. The shaytan jinn are akin to demons in Christian tradition, but the gina are not angels and the Quran draws a clear distinction between the two creations. The Quran states in Sūrat al-Kahf (The Cave), Ayah 50, that Iblis (Azazel) is one of the jinn.
Mondeh is currently awaiting trial for the murder of Amos.
