As Benedict Jammeh Gets Redeployed to Judiciary

Commissioner of Police Essa Badjie, alias Jesus, has been appointed as the new Inspector General of Police, this paper can reveal.

Our sources said Badjie was appointed yesterday in replacement of Mr. Benedict Jammeh, who has reportedly been redeployed to the judiciary.

New IGP Badjie was Commissioner of Police for Western Region, before he was appointed Crime Management Coordinator following the arrest last month of Commissioner Burama Dibba. 

This paper cannot however establish Mr. Jammeh's position at the Judiciary for now. Acclaimed by many as conscientious in all respects, Mr. Jammeh was appointed IGP early last year. He holds Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and LLB in Law.
