At the time of going to press, reports have emerged from the Upper River Region indicating that three supporters of the APRC party who are currently on a nation-wide tour, were allegedly injured by natives of Mankamang kunda village, the home settlement of President Adama Barrow, as the convoy passes through the community. Foroyaa decided to contact Police Spokesperson David Kujabi, to confirm the report but he did not respond to the call.

Foroyaa contacted Seedy Njie, a member of the party’s leadership who confirmed that the allegation is a true story. Njie explained that the convoy was coming from Dembakunda in URR, heading to their next destination in the Central River Region-South, and where to pass through Mankamang Kunda village.

“This was when a boy came from inside one of the compounds on the right side of the road from the Basse end, and started throwing stones at some people sitting on top of one of the ‘gelegele’ in the convoy. They stopped and tried to ask him what the problem was. In the process people started coming from every direction in the village. One hit Rohey Janneh with a pestle on her right hip, just below the rib and one Oumie Gibba was hit with a hammer, also on her back,” he said.

According to Njie, the boy who was hit with a hammer on the head is injured and is admitted at Bansang Hospital; that the other two girls are also at the hospital but cannot confirm if they will be admitted as well. He said the incident happened around 5pm on Monday.

Mr. Njie said two police intervention officers were on the ground, one of whom actively controlled the situation.

Foroyaa will contact the PRO today during working hours, to get a full story of this incident.

Media Advisory

Amie Bojang-Sissoho
Director of Press & Public Relations
Office of The President,
State House, Banjul, The Gambia.
9 December 2017.

His Excellency, Adama Barrow and the government wish to express regret over the unfortunate incident at Mankamang Kunda, yesterday, January 8, 2018 in which some people were injured. President Barrow calls on all Gambians to maintain the peace and stability The Gambia is known for.

In the New Gambia, incidents of this nature in any part of the country, whether the birthplace of the President or any other place, is regrettable, as we are One People, One Nation.

In this spirit of One Gambia, people are encouraged and expected to go about their economic, social and political activities in a responsible and civil manner, as a sure way to jointly build a better and brighter Gambia for all.

As a responsible government, the natural cause of action to take, as is expected, is to investigate into the incident so as to get to the bottom of it.

The President has therefore instructed that the situation is urgently and diligently looked into by the competent institutions so as to avoid repetition of such unfortunate acts.

END

“Police Obtain Statement From Victim” In Alleged Attack on APRC Supporters

Foroyaa: January 10, 2018

The spokesperson of the Gambia Police Force David Kujabi, said the victim who was left wounded following an alleged attack on the APRC convoy in Mankamang kunda, has given a statement to the police on Tuesday, January 9th 2017.

According to PRO Kujabi, said the convoy was moving when there was stoning resulting to the wounding of the victim Muhammed Badjie. According to him, this incident took place at a distance from the village when the party supporters realized they were being stoned; that when the convoy stopped, the villagers also came out but the PIU were able to disperse everybody and reported the case to the police.

“There is no suspect still now. We cannot move if we don’t have a suspect. The police were able to obtain a statement from the victim of the attack. But unfortunately we are not able to effect any arrest at the moment because nobody knows who the assailant was. The victim doesn’t know the assailant and in that kind of situation, it is a little difficult,” he told Foroyaa on Tuesday evening.
