MONROVIA – In the midst of the rampaging insecurities engulfing Liberia; evidenced by the spate of unexplained deaths, and most recently occasioned by the armed attack on the home of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Gloria Musu-Scott that left her daughter dead and others seriously wounded, Nobel laureate and rights activist Leymah Gbowee has sent out supplications to God Almighty to see and hear the cries of the inflicted citizens of Liberia.
Expressing her lamentations in a social media post yesterday Monday, February 27, 2023 about the worsening security situation especially in Liberia and the globe in general, Madam Gbowee prayed for the spirit of the living God to fall fresh on Liberia and the world, crying: “These are turbulent times; many are in a state of anguish and fear. Violence, drugs and many other vices are destroying innocent lives. Like the days of the Prophet Habakkuk, we are pleading to you to see and hear our cry.
“Lord, your children lift their eyes to you because we trust and believe that our help comes from you. You are our keeper, our shade and shield.
“Thank you, great God, that you are for rescuing your children. May your truth, justice, and peace be established in Liberia and throughout the world. In Jesus’ Name–Amen!” the Nobel Laureate further prayed.
Madam Gbowee’s lamentation about the spiraling insecurities comes against the gruesome murder of the daughter of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Gloria Musu Scott on February 22, 2023. The attack left Madam Gloria Scott’s daughter Charloe Musu murdered and another female victim.
The Liberia National Police says it has launched an investigation into the armed attack on Cllr. Scott, and has already called in for questioning some individuals as “persons of interest” in the case.
