The following press release reads:

The Gambia Police Force Press Release

It has come to the notice of the Office of the Inspector General of Police that some people are fond of erecting tires, pecks and placing big stones on public roads to avoid vehicles from coming close to their fences.

This behavior is causing misunderstanding between the drivers, pedestrians and compound owners. Therefore the office of the IGP in collaboration with the National Roads Authority warns the general public especially the affected individuals to desist from such behaviour because it is causing obstruction and is not in line with the traffic and NRA acts.

The understanding and cooperation of the General Public particularly those directly affected is highly solicited.
