Montserrado Senator Darius Dillon has promised a complete breakdown of law and order in Monrovia if his campaign comes under attack; stoning, use of guns and other weapons to create chaos and bloodbath were not ruled out in his hours long podcast.
The lawmaker said he will stone the President’s car and if the President refuses to come out his home out of fear, his home will be stone.
The angry senator was speaking in a podcast Sunday following altercation at a political rally he attended. He linked the reported attack to the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), something the party has sharply reacted to in a statement.
District 16 Representative Dixon Seboe, lawmaker of where the altercation happened, has also rubbished the Senator’s outburst and said he had no invitation to be at the event and it was his men that started the altercation and they were arrested and currently in police custody.
‘I will give a marching order, all members of CPP, going forward we will carry rocks anywhere we’re going, we will carry the weapons that we have anywhere we going to protect ourselves,’ Dillon alarmed.
Senator Dillon continued, ‘Ehn they say they will shoot guns, when they shoot they won’t know where guns will come from to respond.’
In a rather disappointing posture in international groupings and others, the Montserrado Senator said ‘I’m waiting for international community and inter religious council to call me to meeting, I am waiting; I would have been killed today and they would have politicised it.’
The podcast has been taking rounds on social media with series of condemnation getting Dillon to apologize on a local talkshow later on Monday.
The lawmaker made similar statements of causing panic for the citizens which promoted religious leaders to intervene but the threats keep coming.
Liberia goes to a crucial December 8 midterm senatorial election and all eyes are on Montserrado where an incumbent is being heavily fought by Rep. Thomas Fallah of the CDC.
Fallah is a three terms Representative of electoral Dist 5, Montserrado and has been getting huge endorsements across the county lately.
Though attracting support as well, Dillon remains deeply rooted in the opposition community and won over a hundred and two thousand votes last time he contested.
