The head of Kanilai International Group has completely escaped President Yahya Jammeh’s wrath. Pa Ousman Bojang who jumped bail in April this year finally landed in the United States on Sunday.
Prior to his US travel, Mr. Bojang had been living in Senegal where Gambian intelligence agents were tracking his movements. Pa Bojang is a cousin of President Jammeh whose mother is reportedly unhappy with his escape. “President’s mother Aja Asombi Bojang wanted Pa to come home and mend fences with Jammeh,” said a competent source. “This became futile exercise because Jammeh ordered security at the border to shoot and kill Pa Bojang if they set eyes on him. This was the reason why Pa had to leave Senegal fast.”
Pa Bojang landed in Washington, D.C. but his final destination is yet to be disclosed.
The escape of Pa Bojang was not taken lightly by the Office of the President that issued a statement offering half a million dalasis to anyone who provided information to security officials leading to his arrest. “Pa Bojang is wanted for stealing and other crimes for which the public is hereby warned not to give him any assistance; a warning is hereby issued that nobody is to hide him or facilitate his escape because drastic action would be taken against anyone helping him in this regard,” an extract of the government’s press release stated.
Pa Bojang had been under investigation by both the National Intelligence Agency and police prior to being granted and jumping bail. He came to prominence after the conviction of Aziz Tamba, replacing him as a liaison officer between the President and his mother.
