The villagers appealed to Government to do something about this; that the animals are their sole income.

‘‘Government should link with the Senegalese authorities, because all these animals stolen from The Gambia especially from this area, cross the broader to Senegal where they are sold at ‘Lumos’ or weekly markets. But our main problem is that these thieves can be seen roaming around after being captured by Police,’’ Alhagie Kemo told this reporter.

The villagers appealed to Government to look at the bail condition granted to criminals in our societies; that this has created much suspicion among villagers and Law enforcement officers and can create a serious problem between them.
