I am a keen follower of your reputable newspaper and I have a sensitive information that I wish to share with you so that you can do further investigations. I appeal to you to protect my identity.
Pa, the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency is involved in massive cocaine trafficking. The agency’s Director General is not actually running the agency. Alagie Bakary Gassama (DG) is just a cosmetic Director. Lamin J Gassama aka Leffeh, the Director of Intelligence /Investigations &International Cooperation is presently the Supreme Director General of DLEAG because he dictates and commands the Director General on the daily affairs of the agency.
Under the office of Director of Intelligence /Investigation & International Cooperation are the following units; Treaty Implementation Unit, Intelligence & Investigation Unit, Sensitive Investigation Unit, Intelligence Analysis Unit, Money Laundering & Asset Recovery Unit, Seaport and Airport Command Unit, Amdalai Border Command Unit, Tourism Development Area Command Unit (Senegambia Area) and DLEAG staff under Financial Investigation Unit(FIU). All these units are under Lamin J Gassama aka Leffeh and they also report directly to him because these are the most sensitive units of the agency and also the entry points /gateway for cocaine into the Gambia. He(Leffeh) has a share in most of the cocaine deals in this country.
After the discovery of the 48 blocks of cocaine, another 10 containers were of the same consignment were further searched and some more blocks of Cocaine were recovered but such was never reported in the news. The reason why the first 48 blocks of cocaine were reported was because the labourers that discovered the drugs were initially offered bribes with a huge sum of money; but because of the number of people involved and the fact that most of the labourers refused to accept the money, they decided to give it publicity.
This publicity made by the deputy spokesperson of DLEAG, Yassin Ndimbalan, did not go down well with the Director of Intelligence Lamin J Gassama who was under pressure from his business counterparts so it resulted in the removal of the deputy spokesperson Yassin Ndimbalan from her position and now moved to the child welfare unit in Brusubi station.
What is more interesting Pa is that the Director of Intelligence /Investigations is recorded by one of his ring boys during the conversation he had with one of his business counterparts regarding the bail of the two culprits who were arrested (Mahdi Tajudinn & Osama Mahmoud). Imagine the two suspects were granted bail just two days after their arrest.
According to sources within the agency, the motive behind the removal of the deputy spokesperson Yassin Ndimbalan from her position and subsequent transfer is for the elevation of one of the boys from the same unit who would do his bidding and he happens to be a cousin to the Director General of DLEAG.
Pa I trust you can do further investigations because am confident that Freedom Newspaper can sniff out information wherever it wants in this country.
