Foroyaa received information that three Senegalese and one Camerounian were arrested by the Gambian security near Medina Yoro Foula on the Gambia-Senegal border recently and taken to Bansang police station for allegedly entering the country without authorisation.

Similar reports have emerged in the Senegalese press.

Foroyaa contacted a police source at Bansang for confirmation of the identities of the detainees but was referred to the police public relation officer (PRO) for further information on whether charges will be preferred against them.

When contacted on the issue, the Police PRO said he is not aware but promised to enquire and get back to this reporter.

Foroyaa will make a follow up on the story and to find out the identity of the detainees and what the future holds for them.
