‘Evangelist’ Couple Confess Killing Son

first_imgResidents of Bahn in central Nimba County yesterday converged at a burial site to witness the exhuming of the body of a 12 year-old boy whose parents allegedly killed him and buried his remains in a secret location under cover of darkness.The boy, Sonkalay Koezehdeai, was accused of involvement in witchcraft activities and was suspected of bewitching his sister, Manlay Koezehdeai, 16, who has been ill for a long time.Police meanwhile have detained Evangelists Matthew Koezehdeai (a Gio name that means ‘one who fights with a bow and arrow’) and his wife Annie.They were arrested following a tipoff that they reportedly locked the boy up, after severely flogging him, in a non-ventilated room where he may have suffocated to death. The incident took place over the weekend.The couple is reportedly assigned with the Bahn branch of the Assembly of God Mission (AGM) Church in Liberia.However, Leroy Wongonzuah, a deacon of the church, denied the accused being members of the denomination, although he confirmed the death of the boy.He said all investigations are being handled by the police.Bahn Police Commander Augustus Mator, who confirmed the incident, would not provide further clarification.Sources say that prior to the incident, Koezehdeai, the boy’s father, said he had suspected that he would eventually kill his son since the boy had earlier reportedly confessed to being involved in witchcraft activities.Meanwhile, the couple eventually revealed what happened to the boy and where he was buried during police investigations. Bahn City stood still as residents and police officers found the location of the burial site, as directed by his parents.Many of the people, particularly the women, burst into tears when it was confirmed that the corpse was buried at the place where the boy’s parents directed the authorities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bad Roads Cause Economic Decline in Southeast

first_imgA portion of the road that is among some of ‘hard-to-cross spots. By Ben T.C. Brooks-ZwedruDeplorable road conditions are a major challenge for travelers in Southeastern Grand Gedeh, River Gee, Maryland, Sinoe and Grand Kru counties.The situation continues to cause an inflation in the prices of basic commodities, including transportation fare, rice, petroleum products, etc.The situation is getting worse daily, due primarily to the rainy season that has made some portion of the roads impassable.In a Daily Observer interview, some commuters spoke of the deplorable  road condition of the routes along the Tappita-Zwedru highway and the Zwedru-Harper corridor, with many businesspeople saying that the situation has economically imposed hardship on them, causing a sharp decline of basic commodities on the market.In Zwedru, for example, a gallon of gasoline is now sold at L$1,000, which is the same with a gallon of diesel fuel, while a 25kg bag of rice is being sold at $5,000.Regarding travels, the transport fare from Zwedru to Ganta, in Nimba County, is mostly negotiated between L$7-8,000; Zwedru-Greenville, Sinoe County, would cost L$6,000 and Zwedru-Fish Town in River Gee County is L$4,700.In the midst of all this, motorbikes remain the most convenient means of transportation in the region, thus making life unbearable and to the extend that some businesspeople have suspended all business activities until the dry season.To cope with such a situation, Grand Gedeh County authorities have pleaded with travelers, most importantly businesspeople, to remain patient, “because the government will soon address the impasse.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Moguls-to-be get first-hand look

first_imgThe class’s instructor, Nick Bogardus, 28, of Orange, a music manager himself, brought the curriculum to Biola for the first time this year. But the school already had strong ties to the music industry, he said. “A lot of the artists and bands I work with went to Biola, so I saw this school as a good place for talent,” he said. The knowledge students garnered from Bogardus’ class took to the stage last week when his students put on their first live concert. Three bands managed by the students performed in Anaheim. “A music manager has their hands in everything that has to do with \ artist’s career,” said Lindsay Phelps, who took on the role of manager for piano rock artist Rhinestone Fargus. “You have to learn how to talk to people and get interviews and other things … ” Student C.J. Casciotta, 21, said that as part of the course he and his classmates met with executives at major record companies, including Capitol Records and BMI, to get first-hand pointers about the industry. LA MIRADA – Plenty of photographs and promotional pieces. Lots of interviews. And even more scheduling and organizing. Such is the life of a music mogul, and a group of Biola University students is learning that, when it comes to success in the music industry, it’s all in the details, baby. “It’s honestly about the importance of organization and hard work,” said junior Kevin Kilpatrick, 21, one of about 15 students enrolled in Biola’s new music management course. “When you’re organized, it’s easier to work harder, because you know what you need to work on,” he added. “I’m trying to give them a well-rounded view of the industry so they’re looking at it through a wide-angle lens,” said Bogardus. Bogardus, who founded his own record label, New Noise Management, said his goal is to teach students about the importance of creating a buzz around a band. “They have to be able to create a story, build a story and tell a story,” he said. “Basically, management and entertainment is branding. It’s recognizing special things about a band and being able to communicate that to fans and open more doors for them.” Phelps said Bogardus’ class has encouraged her to pursue her dream of a career in the music industry. “It’s been a little bit easier than I thought,” she said. “I don’t think it’s an easy job, but I guess I’ve gotten a lot more confident in myself.” araceli.esparza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
