first_imgTwo brothers identified as Stephen Gborzoe and Emmanuel Gborzoe of Camphor United Methodist Mission Junction, in Tubmansville Township in Keekren Statutory District #5, in Grand Bassa County, have been formally charged with multiple crimes and detained by the Buchanan City Court for 60 days.  Alternatively, they are to pay a fine of US$50 each into Government Revenues in Buchanan.The multiple crimes included Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Coercion and Menacing.According to records of the court, presided over by the Associate Magistrate, Richard Browne, plaintiff Stephen Gborzoe claimed that on October 4, 2014, his younger brother Emmanuel Gborzoe and his wife Chinnie unlawfully attacked him publicly with insults and threatened to mob him with a pestle.The court records also said the defendants accused him of practicing witchcraft and that he (Stephen) took his wife’s under clothes and his (Emmanuel’s) photo for juju purposes to kill them. During the hearing of the case on October 14-15, 2014, the state was represented by the Buchanan City Solicitor and Acting County Attorney Isaac Yorcee and Associate City Solicitor Johnson Tukeh, while defendant Emmanuel Gborzoe chose to represent himself after the court acquainted him with his Miranda and constitutional rights.Testifying separately the state witnesses, Mary Gborzoe and Dehyeatee Gborzoe, (sister and mother of the two brothers, respectively), said that Stephen was in the constant habit of urinating in front of the three kitchens that they all use. Whenever they told him to stop, Stephen would in reply insult all of them saying, “That all of you do not love me and your witchcraft cannot do anything to kill me.”The state witnesses denied having any knowledge of the defendant calling Stephen a witch and threatening to mob him to death with a cutlass or stick as claimed by Stephen.Defendant Emmanuel Gborzoe, who testified on his own behalf, disclosed that upon his return from a nearby village, where he had gone for a brief visit, he met his wife and his older brother, Stephen in an altercation (quarrel), accusing and abusing each other.Defendant Emmanuel stated that all efforts to diffuse the conflict amicably proved fruitless with Stephen attempting to engage him in a fist fight and insulting him and his wife. “We did not resist his attempt to fight and abuse us,” he added.In his ruling, magistrate Richard Browne said that under the practices and procedures, the crime of disorderly conduct was clearly established and that the defendant and plaintiff wholly  admitted to the crime as both of them were aggressive.Magistrate Browne subsequently fined the two brothers $50USD each to be paid into Government Revenues in Buchanan and committed them to prison upon their deliberate failure to pay the fines.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
