Police spokesperson, ASP Lamin Njie said: “Five individuals have been arrested and are currently helping the police in their investigations. They have been granted bail.’’

According to police spokesperson ASP Lamin Njie, the suspects were arrested on 30th April 2020 after state security agents received a tip-off about a vehicle heading to Fatoto carrying some contrabands.
