The United Democratic Party (UDP) leader has condemned a viral audio urging his party supporters to engage in violent protests against Adama Barrow’s election victory.

He also called for the police to investigate and arrest the persons heard in the audio making the rounds on social media (WhatsApp).

“I want everyone to ignore this man’s statement whether you are a Gambian, a UDP supporter or not. This man wants to cause harm in this country, a country where only peace is known. Saying people should make bombs and go out is the most irresponsible statement ever. Only a bad citizen would say such. But the police can investigate this, they can trace the person’s number and arrest him.

“The person he is talking to too, Sarjo Jarju, can also be traced with advanced technology. Anyone calling for what happened in Rwanda should be investigated. But I also want to believe, this is not a UDP supporter. Some people are using UDP as a cover to say they would set this country on fire,” Ousainu Darboe said in a WhatsApp audio on Wednesday.

In a viral WhatsApp audio, an unidentified man calls on people to go out and engage in violence to effect a change of government. He cited the 1994 Rwandan genocide for an example.
