The office of the Inspector General of Police has noted with concern; the information making rounds on social media platforms about missing persons including adults and minors.

Although most of these reports on social media platforms were never formally filed with the police, exhaustive investigations have, however, been conducted in many of the reported cases.

The report about a 14 year old girl (name withheld) at Kanifing, allegedly kidnapped and held in an empty cargo container with other children proved to be untrue. She confessed visiting her boyfriend in Lamin village where she spent the night returning home at 4 p.m. the following day. The boyfriend, 18 years old adult has been arrested and he is helping with investigations.

Similarly, another report about 19-year-old Fatoumatta Manneh at Kotu, allegedly abducted and held in a dark unidentified room at an unknown location with other girls is equally unfounded. She confessed picking up a job as house maid at Kotu South where she stayed without her parentís knowledge. She further admitted sending text messages to her family about her false abduction.

The case of a 15-year-old boy (name withheld) gone missing in Banjul was as well investigated. It was found that he left home to Senegal where he intended to enroll in a Quíranic school without knowledge of his parents. He has been found and reunited with his family.

The Inspector Generalís Office wishes to assure the public that it will not relent in its efforts to protect life and properties of individuals as enshrined in Section 178 (1) and (2) of the Constitution of The Gambia.

In this regard, the general public is urged to report all cases and cooperate with the police in the fight against all forms of crimes. Press release
