Gunjur Ward councilor, Momodou Charreh Jibba has written to the Inspector General of Police challenging him to address the mobility constraint that is currently slowing the effective execution of the work of the police at the Gunjur Police Station.

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.
