Defense Counsel Sissoho yesterday told the High Court in Banjul before Justice Ebrima Jaiteh that Yankuba Tourya, who is facing a murder charge, has no case to answer.
Councilor Jibba said mobility constraint is seriously hampering the security operations of the police in the Kombo South coastal town, saying the only vehicle the police station has, got a break down and requires new engine that is worth ninety thousand dalasis.
According to him, the police station’s lack of mobility is making work difficult for them, noting that the station needs urgent support to ensure that the community of Gunjur and the environment are safe through the conduct of regular patrol.
‘‘The lack of mobility for Gunjur Police Station is causing a huge burden on the community particularly the victim,’’ he said.
Councilor Jibba challenged the Inspector General and Gambia government to provide vehicles for the police station to execute their duties effectively.
Dr. Ahmadou Lamin Samateh, Minister of Health has said that The Gambia right now has been one of the best performing countries when it comes to the containment of covid-19. He, however, admitted that even in the face of good performance, they struggled to contain the disease.
