“Pa soldiers are beating opposition supporters only claiming that the campaign period is over, but not the ruling party supporters, who are roaming about the street with the Jammeh T-shirts. This is happening now around Westfield, Latrikunda and Tabokoto area,” said my source on the ground.

“Am just coming from town and saw this crackdown happening,” said my source.

The pre-election violence has started. Yahya Jammeh is using the security forces to intimidate opposition voters. This will no doubt undermine the outcome of the elections. The opposition were attacked by the soldiers unprovoked.

This is a developing story. We will keep you posted with developments. Stay tuned.
