A young lady was allegedly murdered and dumped at a Manjie-kunda street corner, the Freedom Newspaper can reveal. Marks of wounds were visible on the lady’s face. The incident happened on Sunday evening—in a broad daylight. Her killer(s) are at large, as Manjie residents were taken aback by the gruesome murder meted out to this unidentified young lady.
The news of the lady’s murder came to the attention of this medium late Monday, following a whatsapp audio message shared by a Gambian lady, who claimed that the lady was found dead next to their Manjie home. She said a passing taxi driver found the lady’s body lying on the street corner—next to their family home. She also said the murdered girl was not a resident of Manjie.
The circumstances surrounding the incident is unknown. The Freedom Newspaper contacted ASP Foday Conta, the Assistant Spokesman of the Gambia police force for comment, but Mr. Conta asked to be given time until Tuesday, so that he can update us on what actually transpired. Conta confirmed the incident, but said he needed time to shed light on the story.
The position of Interior Minister is vacant in the Gambia. The Justice Minister Abubacarr Tambadou has been asked by the president Adama Barrow to oversee the portfolio until a substantive replacement for the sacked former Interior Minister Mai Fatty is hired. Reports have it that the president is on the verge of announcing a new appointment for the vacant post soon. He is likely to appoint a new Interior Minister before the end of the week, sources said.
