Alhassana Jammeh, Gambia’s Ambassdor to The Kingdom of Morroco is currently in Banjul for consultations after he was recalled for allegedly bitting off the finger of one Mr. Jarju’s, his protocol/welfare officer.
According to credible sources, Amabassdor Jammeh attacked Mr. Jarju with a stick after he said Jarju disobeyed his orders.
‘His order was for no staff to use any of the mission’s vehicles for personal use’. A source told The Fatu Network
According to the source, Jarju used one of the vehicles to go pay his children’s tuition. This, the source said didn’t go down well with Ambassdor Jammeh who angrily rushed into Jarju’s office upon his return with a stick hitting him.
‘As Jarju was trying to stop him, he bites off his finger’. A source told The Fatu Network on Saturday. The source added that Jarju was rushed to the hospital but doctors say the finger was cut off from the vein therefore they cannot do much.
When asked whether background checks are conducted for Ambassadors before appointments, an official close to the foreign office said he is not aware for many of the appointments are done in consultation with the Office of The President.
Ambassador Jammeh’s family is said to be very close to The First Family which many believe is the reason for his appointment.
The Fatu Network has tried reaching out to the foreign minister, Mr. Ousainou Darboe but he is said to be currently out of the country on an official mission. Mr. Darboe is ecpected back in Banjul Saturday evening.
Meanwhile, Moroccan Police are said to be investigating the issue and have spoken to numerous staff at the Embassy. Ambassador Jammeh’s fate hangs in the balance as sources say The Morrocan Government do not want him back as Ambassador.
