Nimba County Senator Prince Y. Johnson Plans to Gather 500 Men, Including Ex-Combatants, Amidst Potential Threats to Church

To prepare for any potential threats to his church, the Christ Chapel of Faith, Nimba County Senator Prince Y. Johnson has declared that he will gather a group of around 500 men, including ex-combatants. This move comes in response to Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor and others’ recent comments regarding Senator Johnson’s potential presidency if anything goes wrong with former Vice President Joseph N. Boakai’s campaign.

Senator Johnson was expected to address these remarks from his pulpit on Sunday, May 21, 2023, but was interrupted by a group of National Patriotic Party supporters who stormed the church grounds. They accused the former warlord of being a murderer due to his involvement in the Liberian civil crisis and the public execution of former President Samuel Doe.

Despite this interruption, Senator Johnson briefly spoke with the media, stating his intention to communicate with the US Embassy and other international groups about the instigation of violence by President George Weah, Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor, Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson Koijee, and others as the political election approaches. He also warned against the abuse of power in southeastern Liberia, urging Mr. Weah not to put the country in trouble.

Since the endorsement of Unity Party Standard bearer Joseph Boakai and the nomination of Jeremiah Koung of the MDR by Senator Johnson, the ruling party and opposition members have been exchanging heated comments and criticisms.
