The Gambia Police Force has reported that a man was shot in Fass Njagga Choi during a routine patrol after allegedly refusing a search.

“In recent times, the Fass Njagga Choi area has experienced an uptick in cross-border criminal activities, leading to multiple attacks on police officers (PIU Personnel). In response, PIU deployment has increased patrols to curb these incidents and maintain security. During one of these intensified patrols in the early hours of Saturday, June 15, 2024, between 0300 and 0400 hrs, police encountered Momodou Jallow suspiciously loitering around a Mauritanian shop. When officers requested him to submit to a search, he refused and fled, carrying a bag. In the ensuing engagement, he was shot in the buttocks,” the police announced.

The police reported that after surrendering, Jallow was arrested, and a search revealed three bundles of suspected cannabis in his possession.

“He was taken to the Amdalai Police Station for processing and subsequently transported to Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital (EFSTH) in Banjul for medical treatment. He is reported to be in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the buttock. This incident underscores the ongoing challenges faced by police in managing security threats in the region, particularly those involving drug trafficking and cross-border crime,” the police said.
