The deceased, Omar Krubally,

The number of deaths in Wednesday’s accident involving the supporters of the National People’s People, NPP, has increased to six.

The sixth victim was identified as one Omar Krubally, who died Friday 5 November at the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital in Banjul.

Krubally was critically injured in the accident, and was being treated at the country’s main referral hospital.

The deceased who is a native of Basse was laid to rest on Saturday. Commonly known as Jordan, Krubally was a volleyball player.

He represented Basse many times in competitions in and outside the country, including the SAFRA.

It would be recalled that five NPP supporters earlier died in the reported accident at Kiang in the Lower River Region.

They were traveling from Basse to the Kombos to attend the nomination of President Adama Barrow.

Barrow on Thursday filed his papers with the Independent Electoral Commission, IEC.

He is seeking re-election for a second five-year term in the presidential election slated for December 4.
