National Assembly for Banjul South Fatoumata Njai has been finally released following her arrest.

Fatoumata Njai was arrested on Sunday after attempting to bring her mother out of coronavirus quarantine.

Her release comes as police insisted Njai broke the law by going to Golden Beach “on three separate occasions where she subjected the health and security officials to verbal abuse”.

“Added to that, she used her vehicle to barricade the entrance to the hotel obstructing everyone from entering or leaving the premises,” police said.

They then blasted the lawmaker: “Hon. Njie’s actions are not only a breach of law but also one least expected of a lawmaker.”

Her release came after hours of negotiation led by her lawyer, PPP leader Papa Njie and fellow lawmakers.
