Former President Yahya Jammeh held the Gambia and West Africa hostage until the final minutes of his departure on the 21st of January 2017. Then Jammeh blackmailed the West African leaders to carry away some of his LOOT. As stated by Mai Fatty on Dr. Touray’s Facebook page, President Barrow REJECTED Jammeh’s blackmail and the so-called “DEAL”.

The goal of those who agreed “the DEAL” with Jammeh was simple: avoid war and bloodshed. And they got Jammeh to leave peacefully. That is very important – and the theft is NOTHING compared to the avoidance of shedding Gambian blood.

As for “the DEAL”, if it was never assented to and never signed by the lawful President of The Gambia, President Adama Barrow, it is NULL and VOID. As Mai Fatty says PRESIDENT BARROW REJECTED IT OUTRIGHT.


The Government of President Barrow will almost certainly send out an Internal Arrest Warrant and RED ALERT NOTICE for the arrest and return of Yahya Jammeh to The Gambia as a felon for the theft of the vehicles he looted on Saturday night in front of the world’s cameras. All those vehicles are properties of The Republic of The Gambia which were stolen and must be returned. I have no doubt that President Barrow’s team is working on that right now and it would be advisable to put this in the public domain as soon as possible. President Barrow should go on GRTS at once to assure Gambians that he rejected “the DEAL” and that an Interpol Jammeh Arrest Warrant has been issued for the theft of the vehicles.

In the meantime, shocking as the theft of the cars was, it is Jammeh showing his most disgraceful character to Gambians and the world for the final time – and we should not hold it against Barrow’s Government which is either out of the country, refused to agree to such deals, and also didn’t know much about it.
