PAYNESVILLE, LIBERIA - About 15,000 residents of the African Bible College (ABC) Community in District#6, Montserrado County, risk being evicted shortly.  

This followed the ruling of the Sixth Judicial Civil Law Court of Monrovia, in favor of the Executive Director of ABC Children’s Aid Liberia, Inc., Pastor Matthew Sakeuh.

Pastor Sakeuh is the lawful owner of the 52.76 acres of the land being occupied over six years and well developed by  the score of residents who are next door neighbors to President George Weah’s Properties along the Robertsfield Highway in Paynesville City.

The Chairman of the ABC Community, Solomon Wratee, said: “We the affected residents are pleading with Pastor Sakeuh, for reconsideration to rebuy the land from him, we are the victims of circumstances for which we apologize and asked to be forgiven”. 

They affected residents are also appealing to President George Weah, Liberia Council of Churches and other philanthropic organizations, to urgently intervene.

According to our reporter, the property in question was sold to the occupants by some Gbe-gbah Town residents on the Roberts field Highway.
