“Going by our zero tolerance for drugs abuse – all those found guilty of drug possession or abuse were dismissed and handed over to the drug law enforcement agency for prosecution,” he explained.

Ousman Saidybah the spokesperson of the Drug Law Enforcement Agency (DLEAG) said their staff and personnel of The Gambia Police Force stopped a commercial vehicle (BJL 1890 S) for a routine check at the Kalagi Check Point.

Upon arrival at the charge office, he added the said individual took out a pistol, fired a shot in the air to pave way for his escape. Later, he said a search was conducted but he could not be traced.
