President-elect, Adama Barrow, has been reported dead.

Barrow was murdered by unknown assailants who overpowered his security guards, leaving two dead and six others injured from gunshots, CBN Television, Banjul is reporting.

His 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.

“It should be crystal clear that filing an election petition is the private matter of a loser in an election. It does not prevent mandatory constitutional processes from taking place.

“ECOWAS, the African Union and the United Nations could only intervene if the two presidents fail to do, with impeccable thoroughness, what the constitution of the republic demands,” Barrow, who vowed to take office on January 19 despite the refusal of Jammeh to give up power, had stated.

Meanwhile, Gambian Press Union says Jammeh, the ‘prime suspect’ has denied any involvement in the incident.

"Aje ke lana, omo ku loni...," as the Yorubas will say.
I think Yaya Jahmeh should be questioned.
The international community should wade in.
Gambian youths should rise and fight for democracy.
I smell "African Spring!"  Sad
