Monrovia — The search is on by authorities of the Liberia National Police (LNP) for killers of a former presidential candidate in the 1997 elections Fayiah Gbollie.

The late Gbollie is reported to have been killed by unknown men and was found dead in the pool of blood as early as 10:am Friday morning at his Congo Town residence.

A brother of the deceased Siafa Gbollie said that he was informed of his brother death through a call from a relative in the area around 10-11 a.m Friday morning.

He said that the incident had occurred when the two kids who lived with the deceased have gone to school leaving him alone at home.

According to Siafa the deceased was brutalized and hit in the mouth while the attackers tied rope around his neck and pretended as though he hung himself and fled with his vehicle.

However a source within the LNP who hinted the Frontpageafrica said that since Friday the police had made no arrest of any suspect but are continuing to hunt the attackers who are still- at large since Friday, December 6, 2013.
