Two Senegalese suspected of attempting to attack Jahanka, a village in CRR have been arrested with locally made pistol.

Momodou Barry and Manka Camara are currently detained at the Major Crime Unit of The Gambia Police Force (GPF) at the Police Headquarters in Banjul pending investigation.

The said pistol was found with Momodou Barry believed to be loaded with bullets. A source revealed that Manka Camara was the one riding the motorbike they hired to the Jahanka village with more bullets in their bag.

“The two Senegalese were arrested on Wednesday by Gambian securities as they attempted to launch another attack on Jahanka village,” our source in CRR said.

Last week, Ansumana Drammeh, an officer of The Gambia Fire and Rescue Services (GFRS), posted in Bansang in the Central River Region (CRR) was shot in his two legs by neighbouring villagers of Senegal around Jahanka village in the Upper Fulladou District in which a fight erupted between the border villages of Kerr-Yerro and Jahanka. One Senegalese was arrested during the course as he attempted to flee. He was detained at the Bansang Police Station whereas investigation continued.
