Foroyaa has been informed that Mr. Benjamin Wilson, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), has been removed from his position and replaced by Mr. Yankuba Sonko on Monday, 13 July, 2015 following his return from a trip.
According to the source, IGP Wilson was asked to do a handing over to Mr. Sonko, the new IGP, when he reported to his office upon arrival from a mission. The source could not advance any reason for the removal of the present IGP from his position.
Mr. Wilson is replaced by his predecessor who has now been reinstated.
Efforts to reach the police spokesperson to get his comment on the issue could not materialise as we go to press.
Mr. Wilson was a former captain in the Gambia Armed Forces (GAF) and had also served as a Security Liaison Officer at the US Embassy in Banjul.
