Police in Monrovia have arrested two “notorious armed robbers in connection to a recent armed robbery incident in Brewerville City, outside Monrovia in which an undisclosed amount of Liberian dollars were reportedly stolen.”
Otis Richard (aka Nut Shaking) and Koko Borbor (aka Night Bird) allegedly arm robbed a resident of Brewerville, making away with L$350,000 and an unspecified amount of United States dollars, as well as other valuables. The robbers reportedly held their victims at gun point before they committed the act, an LNP release said.
“Koko Borbor (the brother of detained armed robber Kollie Borbor) and Otis Richard have long been on the police wanted list in connection to a series of armed robberies in Monrovia and its environs,” the release said.
Both men were involved in the October 24, 2015 armed robbery of Madam Massa Kamara, a resident of Peace Island in Congo Town, according to the release. The men, on November 11, 2015, armed robbed Pastor John Sabah, inflicting wounds on his son and making away with huge sums of money and valuables.
The LNP has meanwhile declared wanted 21 notorious armed robbers who were recently freed from the Monrovia Center Prison (MCP) following an intervention by the Catholic Justice and Peace Commission on grounds that the suspected robbers were not tried for two consecutive terms of court.
The police said some of the men are behind the recent wave of armed robberies across the city and its environs.
The wanted men include Pirus Konneh, Peter Toe, Archie Zondo, George Pantoe, Victor Jones, Prince Payleh, Siakah Konneh, Richard Tokpa, Joe Morris, and Jerry Kamara. Others also wanted by the police are Joshua Ziah, Junior Joseph, Laye Kamara, Michael Harris, Otus Brown, Archie-boye Siaway, Musa Kamara, Augustine Roberts, Austine Tarr, Isaac Sale, and Zacchaus Tengbeh.
