Information reaching this medium indicates that at least four members of the Gambia Armed Forces (GAF) were arrested and detained at Fajara Barracks three days ago.

Speaking to the military spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Omar B. Bojang, yesterday, he confirmed the recent arrest of soldiers.  He said that two officers are detained in connection to a WhatsApp chat group that has audio recordings which are apparently related to alleged mutinous acts, defamatory,  scandalous and unethical while other two were picked up for complicity in helping the third suspect to escape.

Following this, the PRO said that the military has  re-launched a panel of investigators to look into circumstances surrounding the whole episode.

“They will investigate and determine who are the members of the group and also to find out the content of the messages whether they have any implications to jeopardize national security and to come up with recommendations, ” he said.

He said some of the suspects are already helping the panel of investigators.
