Liberia: Ezzat Eid Group Rubbishes ‘Malicious’ Facebook Post Linking Him to COP

(Monrovia, January 2, 2020): The Ezzat Eid Group has categorically rejected as false, untrue, and a complete imagination a Facebook post insinuating that the Chief Executive of the Conglomerate, Mr. Ezzat Eid, had hired and is sponsoring mercenaries in support of plans by the Council of Patriots (COP) to agitate against and subvert the Government of President George Weah. A press release issued by the Management of the group pointed out that “In the rather reckless post of December 30, a certain Kudeh Williams alleged that Mr. Ezzat Eid had met with the COP’s leader, Henry Costa, in Monrovia to give the COP instructions on how to frame their grievances and conduct the protest.” The press release indicates that such a claim is devilish and…

Supporters of the controversial leader of the Council of Patriots (COP), Henry Costa, blocked a major street in Monrovia Sunday, and threatened to attack and disarm presidential security officers (Executive Protection Service or EPS) on Sunday, December 29, 2019.
