The Gambia Police Force has confirmed the arrest of opposition United Democratic Party campaign manager Momodou Sabally on Wednesday, December 21, 2022.
The Police say Sabally’s arrest is connected to an alleged video circulating on media suggesting President Barrow will be unseated before the local government elections in 2023. As a result, he has been invited to the Police for questioning, said the Police.
This came barely less than 24 hours since the government confirmed an alleged attempted coup to overthrow President Adama Barrow, which several military officers foiled.
In an earlier reaction to his arrest, the opposition politician said: “I have been invited to Brusubi Police station by the usual suspects. Heading there right now.”
