“At 6pm the same men in uniform came back and stood at the gate,” he said,

He added: “The police later left the area. At 8 to 9pm, one commissioner Njie from Kairaba Police station came with the same men and asked us to leave the place.”

Njie further explained: “They told us that we have to apply for permit to hold the event because it is a requirement in the Public Order Act, or else we will not hold the event.”

According to him, there was a push and pull between them and the Police. He said when they realized that the situation was about to get tense, they decided to agree and leave.

Reacting to rumours that they were beaten by the Police, he concluded: “We left the place at 11:30. No one was arrested or beaten.”
