Superintendent Mamading Dibba has informed this medium that the drivers of the two mini-truck that they say were loaded with basic commodities and intercepted in Foni, are yet to be charged.

Superintendent Dibba disclosed this yesterday Wednesday Aril 15th.

“The two Drivers are not yet charged. At our level, we are done with investigations and we will now hand them over to the Police who will look at the matter and charged them if necessary,” he said. PRO Dibba said when the drives were intercepted in Foni, they were not detained; that they were granted bail as investigations into their illegal activity continues.

If readers can recall, two mini-trucks loaded with basic commodities were intercepted in Foni in the West Coast Region allegedly trying to smuggle the contents of their vehicles out of the country.
