– Following his successful return, the Gambia new president, Adama Barrow, has been advised by security operatives to stay away from government house until his security can be guaranteed
– There has been earlier indication that former president, Yahya Jammeh may have set alleged trap in the state house for new president
New Gambia President, Adama Barrow has been advised by security operatives to run the affair of the state from his private home.
According to Al -Jazeera, the reason for this is for security operatives to ascertain that the state house which accommodated former Gambia dictator, Yahya Jammeh, has no potential danger for the new president.
Adama returned to Gambia from Senegal to take over the ruling the state by 4p.m. on Thursday, January 26, after his predecessor Yahaya Jammeh stepped down.
Troops of the Economic Council of West African States (ECOWAS) in The Gambia have earlier reported a large cache of sophisticated arms and ammunition missing from State House in Banjul, the capital.
According to a Gambian newspaper The Point, troops also found that all the air conditioners were loaded with a toxic chemical, which was meant to poison the occupants of any of the rooms.
The deadly chemicals in air conditions and offices were allegedly planted by former President Yahya Jammeh to kill the incoming government led by President Adama Barrow.
The paper added that state guards officers who were there until Sunday morning are currently being questioned by ECOWAS military officers.
Meanwhile, Tibou Kamara, a former government minister from Guinea, and one of the first negotiators sent in to convince former Gambia president, Yahya Jammeh to give up power has come out to say how the former dictator was convinced to leave Gambia for new President, Adama Barrow.
Kamara said in an interview said: “It was not easy, because against the determination of the international community, there was a fierce resolve to defend what he (Jammeh) saw as law, truth and justice, but especially the independence and sovereignty of his country.”
