A former staffer of the Central Bank of The Gambia, who still had solid and reliable contacts at the bank today forwarded confidential banking documents to the Freedom Newspaper, which linked the exiled Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh, his former Chief Protocol Officer Sanna Jarju, and Alhagie Ousman Ceesay, also a onetime Jammeh Protocol Officer to alleged economic crimes and abuse of office by allegedly siphoning millions of dollars of government funds from the CBG. The funds were allegedly stolen from a government bank account at the Central Bank dubbed as “THE SPECIAL PROJECT FUND VISION 2016” bank account. The documents were accompanied by the passports belonging to Yahya Jammeh, Sanna Jawara, and Alhagie Ousman Ceesay. The trio have been identified as those behind this alleged grant theft at the Central Bank, which is a subject of investigations by the Janneh Commission.    

In a span of three months, Mr. Jammeh and his former enablers, one of whom Mr. Sanna Jarju, who is said to be in hiding in the United States, allegedly swindled millions of dollars from the Special Project Fund (Vision 2016) bank account from the Central Bank. Mr. Jarju used to live in Iowa, before abruptly moving to Atlanta, Georgia. This followed, reports that personnel of the US Homeland security came to his Iowa home, while he was away, and the person left a business card for Jarju to call him. But Jarju never bothered to call; he instead moved to Atlanta. He has picked up a job in Georgia, since his arrival there.

Alhagie Ousman Ceesay is president Adama Barrow’s Chief Protocol Officer. He is still under the employment of the Gambian government despite his alleged complicity in Jammeh’s financial crimes against the Gambia and her impoverished people. He travels with President Barrrow in and outside the country.

The main man behind what many in Banjul called “the Central Bank robbery” former Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh, is living in exile in Equatorial Guinea.  Mr. Jammeh’s passport number has been listed as: D 0001606. The passport was issued to him on July 12th, 2012. It expired on July 12th, 2017. Mr. Jammeh doesn’t have a valid passport at this hour.

Writing to the Freedom Newspaper, our competent and dependable source said: “Please see how much was taken from the poor Gambian people in 3 months from one account only. More will follow. These are the real criminals. The dictator and his cronies use the dollar as a toilet paper. The new government will be judged on how much they recover from these bandits. Cheers! In confidence brother; and more will follow.”

The documents featured the signatures bearing Yahya Jammeh, Sanna Jarju, and Alhagie Ousman Ceesay’s handwriting. Millions of United States dollars were withdrawn from the so-called government Special Project Fund Vision 2016 account on different occasions. Sanna Jarju and Alhagie Ousman Ceesay have been identified as Jammeh’s emissaries or financial foot soldiers at the Central Bank at the time. The duo had collected millions of dollars from bank officials on behalf of Yahya Jammeh.
