The Gambia Police Force reported the detention of 19 individuals for their alleged involvement in the vandalization of Ngain Sanjal Police Station and the subsequent attack on law enforcement personnel on Friday, June 21, 2024.

“The conflict escalated when a group of villagers demanded the release of a suspect accused of the unusual crime of ‘snatching manhood.’ Upholding their duty to enforce the law, the police refused to release the suspect. In retaliation, the enraged crowd attacked the station, damaging property including a television set, its receiver, the station’s diary, and other valuable items. The altercation resulted in serious injuries to the officers, who required immediate medical attention at Farafenni General Hospital,” the police said.

The Gambia Police Force has expressed strong disapproval of the assault, characterizing it as disorderly and aggressive conduct. They have also called on citizens to seek justice through appropriate legal channels.

“An investigation into the incident is ongoing, and the police are committed to charging and prosecuting those involved in the attack on the station,” the police said.
