Forces loyal to President Yahya Jammeh claimed to be 100% certainty in full control of the situation in Banjul where a reported coup was purported to have been repelled.
Senior military officials also confirmed that former Col. Lamin S. Sanneh and three attackers are feared dead. One of the attackers was captured but is at the moment being treated at the RVH in Banjul. Soldiers are still looking for three or more alleged attackers, our sources alleged.
Our sources also said that General Saul Badjie is not dead as reported earlier.
Jammeh’s forces also said that there was no causality on the side of The Gambia government. This adds to the already growing suspicion filling the air that the attackers were lured into the trap.
Our sources alleged that the attackers came with no heavy arms, and that the heavy firing was a revenge attack to makeup the situation that the country was under attack.
“If there was a real attack on State House, how come no single Gambian soldier died in the reported shootout?” our sources alleged.
Our sources also revealed that President Yahya Jammeh is in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, instead of in France.
More details on the purported coup attempt will follow.
