MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Executive has distanced itself from alleged threatening comments attributed to Deputy Defense Minister for Operations designate, Tarplah Davies.

Prior to his appointment, Mr. Davies in a live Facebook video allegedly threatened to kill anyone who will destroy his properties, and vowed to resist those calling for the resignation of President George Weah.

Deputy Presidential Press Secretary, Smith Toby, said:” The comments made by Mr. Davies cannot be attributed to the Executive Mansion.”

However, Mr. Toby stressed that the nomination of the Deputy Defense Minister for Operations designate will not be withdrawn because he made the comments before his nomination.

He also urged aggrieved Liberians to channel their concerns through their Senate Committee on Defense during his confirmation hearing.
