The Inspector General of Police, Essa Badjie, has called on the youth of The Gambia to desist from drug use and trafficking noting that drugs are dangerous. He made his remarks in Bansang while engaged in a tour of the provinces.

According to him, drugs are illegal and no good for the human body causing only destruction when used. He called on the community in the area to help the police to combat drug trafficking. IGP Badgie advised the Alkalo to be careful in how he issues documents to cattle dealers saying that some might be rustlers.

For his part, the Governor of CRR, Alh. Ganyie Touray cautioned the local authorities to be mindful of the way they issue papers to cattle dealers to facilitate their movement because without papers they cannot escape security.

Other speakers included Chief Biran Baldeh and the Alkalo of Bansang Alh. Kebba Kora. All expressed their gratitude and appreciation to the entourage.
