The Gambia Police Force have released Momodou Sabally and Sheriffo Sonko on bail. 

The duo are members of the opposition United Democratic Party (UDP). They allegedly made commentaries that prompted the police to invite them for questioning, which resulted in their subsequent arrest and detention. 

The two have been charged with threatening police officers with violence. 

The two declined signing their statements. Momodou Sabally was granted bail with a bail bond of One Hundred Thousand Dalasi (D100,000) while Sheriffo Sonko was released on the same terms. 

They were asked to surrender their travel documents to the police. They are also required to report back to the Kanifing Police today at 9:30 am. Since the matter is under investigations, we cannot give details of the alleged comments.

Foroyaa is monitoring the developments regarding the case.
