Yankuba Darboe has insisted no one can intimidate him following reports of a group of people plotting to murder him.
The UK-based Gambian lawyer is in the town and will be taking part in Operation Three Years Jotna’s protest on Monday.
On Friday, reports made the rounds of a plot to kill one of the group’s most distinguished members. The wild reports claim a meeting to kill Yankuba Darboe took place at State House, and that it involves hiring rebels from Casamance.
Mr Darboe told The Fatu Network Friday evening a friend apprised him of a plan to eliminate.
“I don’t think this is credible but it comes from someone very credible,” he said.
“But I think is just a trick to try and instil fear and that was what I was trying reproof saying that you can’t intimidate me.
“The way I go on my normal day is how I am going to continue.”
The Fatu Network contacted State House director of press and public relations Amie Bojang Sissoho but she said she would not be able to know anything on issues involving killing. She advised the security people be contacted.
