The newly appointed national security adviser of The Gambia provided fresh information about last week’s coup attempt during a press briefing in Banjul on Thursday (Dec. 29).

The government’s response to the thwarted scheme was also presented by him.

Furthermore, civilian collaborators both inside and outside the country are suspected of serving as sponsors for the coup plot, according to reports. This angle is being seriously considered by the investigations.

In addition, Abubakarr Suleiman Jeng disclosed that suspected coup plotters desired to imprison ministers and senior officials in order to thwart outside interventions.

Seven soldiers have been detained, and at least two more suspects who are allegedly involved in the coup attempt are still at large.

As a result, Jeng continued, the Gambian government has established a joint investigation team to look into the alleged coup plot in accordance with national law and best practices around the world.

The panel will have 30 days to submit a report on the attempted coup against President Adama Barrow’s administration.

The inquiry group’s 11 members come from the military and the justice ministry.
