Gambia Police Force have recently arrested and subsequently granted bail to Bubacarr Bah – a Police Chief Inspector over allegations of fraud in the issuing of diplomatic passports. 

According to the Police spokesperson, ASP Lamin Njie, Chief Inspector Bah’s name came up during the investigation into the diplomatic passport fraud case.  

He added that Bah was arrested and subsequently bailed after statements were obtained from him.

“Recently the investigation laid hands on new evidence connecting him further to the case against him which led to him being called in and his bail conditions reviewed,” Police PRO said.
