Contrary to recent reports claiming that President elect in The Gambia Presidential elections Adama Barrow has been assassinated, we later gathered that he is alive and well.
Earlier on Wednesday afternoon, a news website, Skytrendnews, reported that Mr Barrow 51, was killed by unknown assailants in the Gambian capital, Banjul.
According to the website, the assailant overpowered Mr Barrow’s private security guards, leaving two of the guards dead and other six injured from gunshots.
But some reliable papers in the Gambia later confirmed that Mr Barrow, who is scheduled to be sworn-in on January 19th as Gambia’s third president is not only alive, but living happily and healthily with his family and getting on with his plans to govern the small West African nation.
The former property developer, Wednesday held a series of engagements with coalition partners and other stakeholders at the luxurious Coco Ocean Hotel, where he is staying until he moves to the State House in Banjul.
