The Point has learnt through reliable security sources that four senior officers of the Gambia Armed Forces have been discharged from the military, and redeployed to the foreign service.

The redeployment of Major General Saikou Seckan, chair of the Joint Operation Centre; Brig. Gen. Lamin Bojang, the chief of Army Staff; Brig. Gen. Ebrima Bah, Inspector General of GAF and Commodore Madani Senghore, the chief of Naval Staff, is the latest move that saw officers of the military being deployed to the foreign service.
