According to the police, the arrest of the suspects came after they were found armed with knives in public and disturbing the peace around the Brufut Health Center. The suspects were also found with suspected cannabis, the police said.

The police added that the case of the suspected cannabis has been transferred to the Drug Law Enforcement Agency The Gambia (DLEAG) for appropriate actions.

“The public, particularly young people are urged to direct their energy into productive ventures and desist from ‘knife crime’. Individuals found wanting of ‘knife crime’ of any form will be prosecuted accordingly,’’ the police warned.

Meanwhile, commenting on the drug matter, DLEAG said one alleged Child Offender (ACO) was handed over to them by the police with parcels and three wraps of suspected cannabis. The DLEAG official added that the suspect was later handed-over to the Gender, Human Rights and Child Welfare unit of DLEAG for further processing.
