Police in Sibanor Friday, June 9, arrested a man alleged to be in possession of firearms. The alleged Man name withheld is suspected of hoarding a stash of arms allegedly given to him for safe keeping by members of the Gambia Armed Forces during the impasse. The intent, according to security sources was to hide those guns for use later, for what security soured say they do not know.
However a search conducted at the man’s house failed to produce any evidence to confirm such. Meanwhile, he is transferred to the major crime unit of The Gambia Police Force for further investigation.
Concerns have been high since the departure of dictator Jammeh regarding the whereabouts of arms allegedly stored by him in Kanilai some or all of which have not been accounted for yet by the current army officials.
