UP ‘Female General’ Remains At-large as Police Disrobe Several Officers

Police spokesman Moses Carter says several Police officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) have been dismissed in the aftermath of the escaping of Peaches Queen Johnson alias “Female General” of the Unity Party (UP) in the investigation of the death of Joshua Solomon, a partisan of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) on August 11, 2023.
Officer Ithamar Harding, code number unit 187, the Chief of Technical Services of the Public Safety Division at the LNP is alleged to have assisted the “Female General” to escape while at the grounds of the LNP headquarters following her arrest at an entertainment center (Red Lion) at the intersection of Center and Broad Streets.

Miss Johnson was arrested on the night of January 5, 2024, when the LNP got a tip-off that she was at “Red Lion”, where according to Police spokesman Moses Carter, there was a scene of high tension between the Police and friends and supporters of the UP’s Female General before she was finally taken away by Police Officers.
The Police spokesman in a press briefing on January 6, said Officer Harding absconded with Queen Johnson from the grounds of the LNP Headquarters. He said the Unit 187 has been dismissed for unethical behavior.
“Unfortunately, while en route to the headquarters of the Liberia National Police to face questioning, Queen Johnson was driven off the headquarters of the LNP in the vehicle operated by one of our officers,” Carter said. “She was driven by the officer and allegedly absconded the scene here at the LNP headquarters.”

According to him, all the responding officers who arrested Queen have been subjected to a professional standard investigation. “In addition to these officers that have been subjected, the officer who is alleged and identified by these officers to have been the one who aided and abetted allegedly the absconding of Queen from the scene, the officer identified as Ithamar Harding, code number Unit 187, the Chief of Technical Services of the Public Safety Division,” the LPN spokesman said.

He added, “Officer Harding has been dismissed with immediate effect and forwarded to the Professional Standard Division for questioning on how Queen Johnson escaped.”
The LNP spokesman stressed that there will be no rest until the UP’s ‘Female General’ and others that were seen in the August 11, 2023 video are brought to face Police investigation.
It can be recalled that Joshua Solomon, a 35-year-old flamboyant model and beauty pageant trainer, succumbed to injuries sustained during the 2023 electoral campaign when he was attacked on August 11, 2023, around the campaign office of the Unity Party in Sinkor after being spotted wearing a CDC T-shirt and cap.
The video, which circulated on social media across Liberia, shows Queen Johnson holding Joshua Solomon as she and several others badly beat him. Joshua Solomon suffered from internal bleeding after the incident and later died in hospital following treatment for the wounds. Since then, Moses Carter, the Police spokesman, pointed out that several people were identified in the video and were asked to turn themselves into the LNP for questioning. However, more than a month has passed, and no one has come forward.
