“The police have arrested the accused persons. Over ten thousand people invaded the station—demanding that the accused persons be handed to them so that they can kill him. The station doors were smashed. It was completely vandalized.  As we speak, angry Brikama residents are still at the station vowing that they will kill the accused persons if they lay their hands on them. This is a nation of rule of law. The police cannot handover the accused persons to them,” our source added.

Meanwhile, the angry residents are threatening to burn down the Jah Oil Gas Station. The accused driver’s truck has been found parked at the petrol station. Hence, the residents are threatening to set the place on fire.

There is pandemonium in Brikama, as we file this story. The Brikama station houses service men and their families. The police employed restraint in handling the crisis, as they fear being blamed at the end of the day–given what happened to the accused PIU Faraba officers.

Bakary Jallow –>>  Since the culprits have been arrested and in Police custody, I call on the people of Brikama to give the Law it’s “full” regard. People should not take the law into their hands. This leads to chaos abd abuse of authority to name a few. The police have done “extremely well by arresting those found wanting. The next stage is to levy charges against the arrestees to face justice. Vandalizing the Brikama Police will not solve the problem and the police should not handover suspects arrested to the angry demonstrators there in Brikama. I call on all Gambians to desist from taking the law into their hands and maximum restraint during difficult times to allow the law takes its due process in line with the laws of the land.
