Notorious Criminal Found Dead In Kakata
Barely weeks after he was arrested and sent to Court, the lifeless body of the 27-year-old notorious and dangerous criminal Amartu Marvey has been found in Kakata City Margibi County.
Marvey was found dead on Tuesday November 6, 2018 at the intersection of the road that connects the Monrovia-Kakata main road to one of the residential areas of staffers of the Booker T. Washington Institute identified as Germany with several wounds on his body after he escaped jail.
It can be recalled that The Monrovia Times Newspaper in October reported that Marvey was arrested on Sunday, October 21, 2018 around the Zone Five Police Sub-station in Paynesville for terrorizing peaceful citizens.
Besides the last arrest made by Police, Police report indicates that Amartu was on several occasions arrested by Police Officers on allegations of burglary among others.
It revealed that on March 1, 2015 the Amartu was accused by one Mr. Momo D. Singbeh of New Kakata Community of burglary and he was arrested, investigated, charged, forwarded to Court and subsequently sent to prison.
The report further narrated that in 2009 the accused was involved in a burglary on the accommodation of his former Chinese in-law who resided New York-BWI where he stole Laptop.
It added that in the same year (2009) Amartu Marvey was again arrested for burglarizing one of the offices at the Kakata Rural Teacher Training Institute (KRTTI) and made away with several pieces of Laptops.
According to the document, on March 22, 2017 Amartu along with some of his criminal collaborators attacked one Mark Gono of Matiala Community using dangerous weapons and took away his cash (money) while en route to Monrovia to purchase goods.
The document said of recent Amartu was released from the Kakata Central Prison (Carter High) where he spent more than one year and barely a day after his release he burglarized the home of one Charles Bracewell in Bassa Community where he stole a generator and fuel, but said items were retrieved.
The Chief Superintendent of Police in Margibi County, Sylvester Hina is quoted in the document as saying Amartu Marvey is very dangerous to the extent that he raised deadly weapons against police officers who attempted arresting him.
In 2015, the document said Amartu attempted stabbing Officer Redeemer Toe in his stomach with a knife when the officer tried to arrest him.
It explained that Amartu on the same occasion attempted to chop Officer Abraham S. Korto with a cutlass after the officer has gone to have him arrested.
Additionally, the report averred that the accused stabbed chief inspector Vayanga Konneh who is the Chief of Operations in his palm with a knife when he went to arrest him. In 2015, Amartu reportedly stabbed officer Michael B. Rogers with a knife and escaped the scene.
Prior to sending him to Court, the Kakata Police detachment of the Liberia National Police charged Marvey with multiple crimes ranging from arm robbery, robbery, theft of property and burglary respectively.
The deceased was then sent to jail awaiting Court trail but he reportedly escaped jail and went to Red-light where he was attacked thereby leaving him with a deep cut in his shoulder.
It also appears that Marvey prior to meeting his demise attempted to carry on some criminal activities (steal) when he was chopped on the head thus resulting to his death.
Meanwhile, family members of Armatu went on the scene and took his lifeless body away for interment.
