Barrow arrests ex-president Jammeh’s supporters in Gambia

By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos with agency reports
Gambian police said they arrested 51 people in a former stronghold of ex-president Yahya Jammeh for harassing followers of new leader Adama Barrow.
The development is coming amid lingering tensions between the supporters of the two leaders following Jammeh’s flight into exile occasioned by the intervention of the regional body, ECOWAS.
So far, 51 people have been arrested on Sunday in the western town of Kafenda, a Jammeh stronghold, for insulting people returning from Mr. Barrow’s inauguration celebration at the national stadium on Saturday, said police spokesperson Foday Conta.
Some threw stones, Mr. Conta added.
Twenty-six of the arrested were juveniles and were released on bail, while 25 were being detained pending an investigation, Mr. Conta said.
A spokesman for the Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction (APRC), Mr. Jammeh’s party when he was in power, said those arrested were APRC supporters and were wearing t-shirts bearing an image of Jammeh’s face.
“They were provoked by the supporters of the coalition (Barrow’s party) who … were calling Jammeh all sorts of names and saying he was a killer. Then a quarrel ensued,” said spokesperson Seedy Njie.
Human rights groups accuse Mr. Jammeh of torturing and killing opponents during his time in power. Mr. Barrow has pledged to reverse many of Mr. Jammeh’s policies, including arbitrary detention.
Mr. Barrow vowed in his Saturday speech to enact sweeping reforms including bolstering a weakened economy.
