Sekou Conneh demands to be called a hero........

former Liberian warlord Sekou Conneh leader of the the Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy LURD, the rebel group that encircled Liberia's capital and heavily shelled it in the final months of Liberia's 14-year conflict in 2003 demended that he should be treated as a hero for having launched the attack that led to the defeat of President Charles Taylor, himself on trial for war crimes at The Hague, Netherlands. Conneh appeared before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Monrovia on Wednesday and refused to accept any wrongdoing during an appearance before a public commission.

Here is a video of his group during the war...





can you believe this criminal, have the audacity to ask the Liberian people to call him a hero? we know of his atrocities in Lofa and Bomi counties when his group burn churches and killed innocent people, infect his drugged fighters once appeared on camera holding up a human heart.
Besides shelling the capital, the Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy is tied to massacres of entire villages. The group's siege of Monrovia led to so many deaths that Liberians began piling up the bodies in front of the U.S. Embassy in a plea for help. if anything this asshole should be jailed and hang for his crimes against the Liberian people.

Sekou Conneh is a FIRST DEGREE LIAR. He needs to return to the TRC and say the truth. No Liberian should forgive someone who's not truthful in his/her testimony.
