The death of the Inspector General of The Gambia Police Force, Alhagie Mamour Jobe has been announced this Saturday afternoon.
Mr Jobe was appointed IGP on the 9th July 2018, few days after the resignation of Landing Kinteh who saw the exit door after the police deadly crushing of a demonstration in Faraba Banta that ended with 4 people being killed.
The late IGP Jobe has served in various units of the Police Force for about 40 years and is said to have been wealthy of vast and rich policing experience.
His last public appearance was on the 3rd March at a hearing before the Truth Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC). IGP Jobe was invited by the Commission to shed light on missing and forged diaries of the police to cover up circumstantial evidence of the massacre of West African migrants in July 2005 by Yahya Jammeh’s regime.
May the soul of the late Alhagie Mamour Jobe rest in peace. The Chronicle’s management and staff extend our condolences to the family of the late IGP Jobe and to The Gambia Police Force.
