The Gambia’s President-elect, ADAMA BARROW has debunked the rumour making the rounds that he has been assassinated, saying he is alive, hale and hearty.
CBN Television, Banjul had earlier reported that he was murdered by unknown assailants who overpowered his security guards, leaving two dead and six others injured from gunshots.
However, a tweet from his official handle, @adama_barrow, said we would like to inform you that the President-elect is alive and well.
His rumored death is coming few days after he referred to the country’s constitution that a court action taken by supposed outgoing President YAHYA JAMMEH cannot prevent the winner of the poll from assuming office as mandated by the constitution.
Mr. JAMMEH who has been in office for 22 years suffered a surprise electoral defeat last month to ADAMA BARROW.
