Banjul Focus Admin.
Following a story that is ravaging public opinion like wild fire facts are emerging to counter everything that was reported to that effect. Per contents of conflicting versions on social media with reference to the above subject matter, sources within the Senegalese intelligence services and or law enforcement agents are vehemently debunking what was reported therein. Facts have also revealed that what was reported on the arrest and detention of Amadou Samba in Dakar is definitely not accurate.
This evening Mr Aidara an investigative journalist reached out to the concerned parties therefore was able to get Samba on the phone. Amadou is far from being arrested let alone detained. Whoever reported his arrest must have premeditated the act with a hidden agenda out of Ill will. Officials of the Senegalese government or security personnel Aidara spoke to said neither is Zeinab Jammeh, wife of former Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh detained in Dakar.
Zeinab, was not in Dakar during recent days and has never been arrested nor detained.
Neither has Dakar facilitated it for Mrs Jammeh to invest in Senegal.
In separate development Banjul Focus Admin team has equally received information refuting the idea that photos showing Amadou Samba and President Barrow together were meant to show cordial relations between the duo. Amadou Samba invested in a hospital being built by Dr James Ndow. James contacted Samba when he began the project for the latter to invest in it. Therefore on the day the foundation stone was being laid Dr Ndow extended a special invitation to Samba like any other party who invested in the project. Samba at the time was in Dakar but traveled home to attend the laying of the foundation stone. During the ceremony investors were asked to take a picture with President Barrow. According to information Banjul Focus received from within, Samba was invited by State House’s own protocol to join the group picture. It is one Tony Banaa who suggested that Samba and him to flank Barrow in that picture. Which was in no way indicating closeness between Barrow and Samba.
Meanwhile officials in Dakar and some journalists are dumbfounded because none of them could have ever imagined that such a story could keep spreading when every thing in there was not the least close to facts.
Relations between Dakar and Banjul have recently improved but stories like these are not helping establish a lasting trust.
Before closing this chapter be informed that Amadou Samba has never been arrested neither did Zeinab come to Dakar Senegal to invest.
