Almamy Taal has said that the Inspector General of Police Mamour Jobe has abused his power by ordering his men to bar him from accessing OIC secretariat office.

Armed police officers were on Friday garrisoned at the Organisation of Islamic Conference national secretariat office at Petroleum House, Brusubi. The men who are said to be acting on orders from the Inspector General of Police were asked not to allow Mr Taal to enter the OIC premises.

Mr Taal was lask week sacked by the President through the Secretary General as legal officer at OIC. No reason was given for his sacking.

“I spoke with the IGP. I told him that it was abuse of power by him by deploying the officers. He should have known better. He is a student of mine at the University and the law is here for all. So for them to deploy officers for personal political agenda is unfortunate,” Mr Taal told The Fatu Network on the phone on Friday.

“I have been advised by my lawyers not to engage in any push and pull. That is why didn’t go to work today.”

Meanwhile The Fatu Network on Friday contacted the spokesman of the Gambia Police Force Lamin Njie for comment but he did not pick a call neither did he reply to a text message.
