Baboucarr Njie, a soldier with The Gambia Armed Forces from Medina Seringe Mass was caught with a pistol at King Fahad mosque where President Barrow was performing his Friday prayers. Baboucarr had the gun inside a bag which was discovered during screenings being performed by the ECOMIG forces.
When confronted, he (Baboucarr) told the ECOMIG forces sent in the country to enforce the West African body’s demands that former President Jammeh hand over power to the legitimate winner of the December election, that he brought it in to handover to Barrow’s military adviser, Massaneh Kinteh.
According to those present at the prayer, they noticed an unusually hasty session and the President leaving right after. Baboucarr was handcuffed and taken away by ECOMIG Forces and is currently helping in the investigation. The security sources who spoke to The Fatu Network, stressed that they cannot rule in or out any motives for Njie’s action and caution against any rush to conclusions. Adama’s life they emphasized is safe.
