House Maid Saves Baby From Kidnap

By Onesimus S. Garway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, January 14 (LINA) - Barely a week after the alleged murder of 18-year-old Siah Princess Tamba in Buchanan, a one-year six-month-old child has escaped an attempted kidnap by unknown men.
The baby is the grandchild of the Scholarship Director at the Grand Bassa Community College (GBCC), Mr. Josiah Gayman.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency on recently in Buchanan, Mr. Gayman narrated that the child “survived by the mercy of God” after two unknown men requested the house maid to turn the baby over to them, claiming its mother “Love Gayman” had sent them to get the child.

Gayman, who is a resident of “God Bless You” Hill Community where the incident occurred, explained that the maid refused on grounds that the child’s mother had just left for central Buchanan and as such it was not possible for her to have sent for her son at home.

This happened in the absence of the grandfather and grandmother of the child.

According to Mr. Gayman, the maid told him that the child was saved through the help of their neighbors who heard her screaming for help.

The two men later fled the scene through the back door and escaped.

But unlike the case of Siah Tamba in which a suspect was arrested, the alleged perpetrators of the attempted kidnap are at large.

The grandfather added that two nights prior to the attempted kidnapping, some unknown individuals broke into their home and made away with several items, including over 20 bags of cement, a video set, and other building materials.

The GBCC scholarship director called for strong security measures to be put in place by the Police as the 2017 elections draw closer.
