Gambia’s President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces Adama Barrow Saturday hosted his first meeting with Gambia’s security service chief.
Spotted at the meeting included the Chief of Defense Staff of the Gambia Armed Forces Ousman Bargie, Inspector General of Police Yankuba Sonko, NIA Director Yankuba Badjie and David Colley of the Gambia Prisons Department among others.
The meeting was also attended by top brass of the ECOWAS Military Intervention in Gambia (ECOMIG) led by the Commander, Major General François Ndiaye, who are currently in the country to sanitize and ensure security after the political impasse that engulfed the nation.
It is not exactly clear what has been discussed though but many believed that security chiefs briefed President Barrow of the state of security in the country and the progress in the collaboration between the Gambia Armed Forces and the ECOMIG troops to ensure absolute peace.
President Barrow is said to have assured them of his support while security chiefs have also renewed their loyalty and assured of maximum security for peace and tranquility in the country.
The regional forces dubbed ECOMIG where deployed by the sub regional bloc to remove former President Yahya Jammeh who refused to hand over power after his mandate ended. Fortunately, he finally accepted and went into exile. Despite, the troops advanced into the country with the welcome of Gambian troops to support each other in ensuring maximum security.
