Senegal Deporting Gambians On Transit

Senegalese authorities have refused some Gambians the opportunity to enter through their airport, Kairo News is reliably informed.

Many Gambians travelling from the United States and certain European countries use Senegal as their port of entry. However, in the wake of the recent events, some Gambians have been refused to enter the West African country. “These Gambians have been deported back to Europe,” our source said, advising Gambians to use their Gambia passports to avoid waste of time or possible deportation. “Senegalese are currently suspicious of Gambians travelling with American or European passports,” our source added.

In a same vein, the leader of the Gambia National Transition Council, Monsieur Le President Sidia Bayo, is reported to be on the verge of being deported. This followed his arrest and detention in Senegal where he travelled for the burial of his 77-year-old father in the holy city of Touba, the seat of Mouride brotherhood.

The reasons for the deportation of French born citizen saidmbian descent remain unclear. But his lawyer believed they might have been connected to his recent public statements calling on Gambians, particularly the military to flush out President Yahya Jammeh.

Bayo’s statement was issued following a failed attempted coup in the Gambia last week.

Gunmen attacked the presidential palace in the capital Banjul while Mr. Jammeh was holidaying outside the country.

In a video posted on the Internet and in a later interview on Senegalese television, Sheikh Sidia Bayo, head of the Dakar-based NTCG, called upon Gambians to support the putsch, which was successfully repelled by Mr. Jammeh’s State Guards.

“We received an official notification from the Senegalese authorities that my client Bayo will be expelled in the coming hours from Senegal,” The Point quoted Mr. Bayo’s lawyer, Assane Dioma Ndiaye as saying.

One Senegalese official is quoted as saying that Bayo, who holds both Gambian and French citizenship, is expected to be sent to France.

President Jammeh blamed the State House attack on political dissidents backed by unnamed foreign powers.

Two Americans with Gambian descent, Cherno Njie and Papa Faal, have been arrested and charged in the United States for conspiring to carry out the violent overthrow of a friendly foreign government.



  1. The effects & obstacles will be numerical to us but the struggle will succeed eventually, we must switch our survival instincts on permanently, in dealing to oust the murderous kanilai devil….. Our collective ad hoc evaluations & rigorous situational changing, to adapt to see the struggle thorough, should be our survival strategic approaches to issues, until successful….. Another comrade being sent back to us to strengthen the struggle again, from temporary confinement which is all that foreign countries can do, after protocol arrests to appease the kanilai devilish tyrant…. It’s the norm with diplomatic expectations, Senegal got economic interests e.g. the bamba-yelli tenda bridge which is now under threat as kanilai IBLISA promised….. But Senegal, US & international community must know & shown that their siding with greater Gambia is realistically beneficial to them & the Gambian community, & not the tyrannical kanilai devil & servants….. No amount of protocol arrest & temporary detentions & confinement will DETER Gambians from reclaiming our country. It’s is our collective promise & naturally given responsibility as a birthright…. Only Gambians can avert strife to burn our only home…. This is incumbent on all Gambians & friends, owed to ourselves, The Gambian community, & generations unborn….. NOTHING can or will stop us until successful. God help Gambia; Ameen.

  2. Now that Bayoo will be more determined..We would like Senegal yo know that this will not change anything.We will not blame because they exercising their law.Look Senegal don’t wanna fall apart with the rest of the world because of the Gambia. They are imitating, and this is very typical of a Frenchman.This struggle will not die and we can’t never be discouraged.. Pretty soon we will have a UNITED FRONT, right now the various factions are not ready yet to form a UNITED FRONT, but that will not be long because WE ALL WILL SEE THE RIVER THAT IS FLOWING EVERYDAY WE PASSES BY WHEN WE WERE BLIND…

  3. Senegal??? They wish we are spending in cfa right now.Just see how their airport security agents will flare their eyes on you with a leer an their usual verbal salute,’Gambien’.The truth is,socially and culturally we have ties but, politically as nation Senegal hates Gambia and Gambians due to a disease called FRANCOPHONITIS.Thank GOD ANGLOPHONITIS has a cure in the Gambia and many British colonies now that many Gambians are aware of the colonial master’s treachery.Monsieur Le educated fools,french are hypocrite assassins across our continent.
