Contrary to viral reports, Gambia’s president-elect Adama Barrow is alive, sources from Gambia confirmed.


CBN Television reported that the assailants overpowered the security guards of Mr. Barrow, leaving two of the guards dead and other six injured from gunshots.

Reacting to the report, popular Gambian journalist Fatu Camara wrote: "BREAKING: We are getting reports that due to threats on the lives of coalition members, many of them are currently evacuated to safe houses..

Meanwhile, contrary to controversial news going around that President Elect Barrow and two security guards were assassinated, we can confirm to you that Barrow is fine as we speak. Stay tuned!," she posted on Facebook.
Gambian leader Yahya Jammeh had accused West African regional body, ECOWAS, of declaring war against his country, when he was asked to step down for a democratically elected president.

Jammeh, who accused ECOWAS of putting forces on alert in case he refused to step down, has vowed to stay in power despite losing a Dec. 1, 2016 election to rival Adama Barrow.
