BARCLAY TRAINING CENTER, MONROVIA- 29 April 2021: The Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) High Command has relieved Lieutenant Colonel Nyankun E. Williams of his post as Commandant of the Armed Forces Training Command (AFTC) on allegation of rape.
The AFL High Command has forwarded Lieutenant Colonel Williams to the Military Police to face investigation. The Military Police will conclude said investigation on 10 May 2021, and submit its findings to the AFL High Command for further actions.
On April 26, 2021, a soldier, presently serving the United Nations Peacekeeping Missions in Mali, formally complained Lieutenant Colonel Nyankun E. Williams of having sexual intercourse with his 16 years old daughter.
Meanwhile, the soldier has been recalled from the peacekeeping mission to aid the Military Police in the investigation.
The AFL High Command assures the public that all recommendations emanating from the investigation will be fully executed.
At the same time, the AFL is assuring the public that it remains a “Force for Good,” and will not tolerate any act that has the propensity to undermine the integrity of the Armed Forces of Liberia.
