Fleeing Gambians

 

 

As the crisis in Gambia gets set to escalate Gambians have been leaving the country via the Senegalese border massively.

Speaking during an Al Jazeera interview monitored by www.theoctopusnews.com, a cross section of Gambians reveal that all they want is peace.

This is coming as West African Head of States have threatened military action against President Yahya Jammeh who has refused to step down despite losing an election to Adama Barrow

 

Meanwhile, Gambia’s army chief, Ousman Badjie, has said he would not order his men to fight other African troops if they enter the Gambian territory.

According to him, “We are not going to involve ourselves militarily. This is a political dispute,” Badjie said, after eating dinner in a tourist district close to the capital, Banjul.

He continued: “I am not going to involve my soldiers in a stupid fight. I love my men, we are not going to involve ourselves militarily. This is a political dispute… I am not going to involve my soldiers in a stupid fight. I love my men.

“If they (Senegalese) come in, we are here like this,” Badjie said, making a hands up to surrender gesture.
