Grand Gedeh Lawmaker Accused of Gangsterism


Report emanating from the office of Grand Gedeh District #3 Representative, Hon. Alex Cheasia Grant, accuses the lawmaker of sponsoring gangsterism leading to injury of a staff member.  According Mr. Aaron David Togba, on 27 January 2018, Hon. Grant sponsored a group of gangsters to torture and beat him. Mr. Togba who claims to be the Chief of Office Staff in the Office of Representative Grant walked into the offices of the Frontier with a broken arm.

The victim claims that the gangsters were escorted by a police officer identified only as Mitchel who is said to be the Commander of Zone 3 CID Division of the Liberia National Police (LNP). Officer Mitchell and the gangsters reportedly broke into the home of Mr. Togba and beat him unmercifully on the instruction of Hon. Grant. The victim’s left hand got broken at his Carey street residence. Some sources who claimed to have been on the scene revealed that honorable Grant ordered the severe beating of Mr. Togba.

The victim informed Frontier that Representative Grant has accused him of having a loving affair with the Honorable’s wife. He further informed that the Representative has intentions to violently seize his laptop on which it is assumed are several secret information about Representative Grants extra-marital relationships.

In an exclusive interview with this paper over the weekend, Mr. Togba lamented that he was taken to a Zoe in Grand Cape Mount County by Representative Grant to prove whether his wife is in sexual relationship with the Chief of Office Staff.

Mr. Togba claims that he has worked in the office of Hon. Grant for over eight years. Frontier finds this information troubling because Hon. Grant has only served his first six years term, and was recently re-elected during the October 2017 elections; hence the staff could not have served the office for eight years. Quizzed whether he (the victim) has filed an officer complaint to the police or other relevant government agencies, Mr. Togba asserted that all efforts to get the LNP leadership investigate the matter have fallen on death ears. He is therefore calling on the government to assist him investigate this matter.

When Hon. Grant’s offices were contact to provide its side of the story, the Frontier was informed that this issue is in court, and that the Representative is in South Africa attending the Pan African Parliament meeting. We therefore hope to provide his response in our next edition provided he is available to react to these allegations.
