The Gambia Police Force has dismissed that their personnel were on patrol to enforce the ban on public gathering, but not closing down businesses.

Police spokesperson ASP Lamin Njie said in a press release forwarded to this paper, “On issues of businesses, I think there was wrong information that got spread out within the business community, people calling each other saying that the police are out closing businesses.”

“We are actually not out to close businesses,” he clarified.

He went on to say that their officers were on patrol to enforce the ban on public gathering, but not actually to close businesses.
