Ex-Presidential Candidate Killed

A Presidential candidate in the 1997 elections and a Legislator in the 2003 National Transitional Legislative Assembly (NTLA), Fayiah Gbollie was gruesomely murdered at his Congo Town residence early Friday, December 6, 2013.

According to the victim’s younger brother, Siafa Gbollie, the night before his brother’s murder he (Fayiah) and another man, only known as Tangbe, were arguing over Fayiah’s car, a Toyota 4-Runner that the man wanted him (Fayiah) to sell. The argument reportedly escalated when late Fayiah refused to sell the car.

The following morning on that fateful day, the identical man, Tangbe went to Fayiah’s house and entered into another round of argument over the car and minutes later the man (Tangbe) was seen driving off with the car, leaving behind the bloody body of the late Fayiah Gbollie.

Siafa Gbollie, the younger brother of Fayiah said that he himself was not on the scene at the time of the alleged murder but was told what transpired on that morning by two girls that were living with his late brother.

The alleged murderer, only known as Tangbe, is currently on the run with Fayiah Gbollie’s gray Toyota 4-Runner car bearing license plate PC-7183.

The Liberia National Police (LNP) said they are currently investigating the alleged murder of Fayiah Gbollie and could not release any information to the press now.
