The Inspector General’s Office hereby notifies the public that it’s officers in Basse area have followed up on a video circulating on social media, in which a guy speaking in the fula dialect was tied with a rope on a tree and tortured for allegedly stealing cattle.
Such barbaric act has no place in any civilized society and of course not in the Gambia.
While the alleged offence is under investigation, the public is informed that all the perpetrators of the torture are currently under police custody being processed for prosecution.
Members of the public are strongly cautioned to desist from taking the law into their own hands and report all crime related matters to the police for appropriate actions.
The usual cooperation and understanding of the public is highly solicited.
