Gbap is a village in Bonthe District, in the Southern Province of Sierra Leone, and it is mainly made up of the Sherbro people. Gbap is the traditional home of the Sherbro Tuckers, descendants of an English slave trader and a Sherbro princess. It is also the birthplace of Patricia Kabbah (who is also one of the Sherbro Tuckers and the niece of Peter L. Tucker), former First Lady of Sierra Leone and wife of Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, Sierra Leone's 3rd President.
