A press release issued by the Gambia Police Force on Monday 29th March 2021 has alleged that Kemeseng Sanneh, commonly known as Kexx Sanneh is “under arrest for giving false information”. In an exclusive interview with Gainako yesterday, Kexx explained how he was abducted and tied up for approximately two days and dumped at Bakoteh Cemetery.
Kexx Sanneh is a young political activist working with the Peoples Democratic Organisation for Independence and Socialism (PDOIS) and a consistent social media broadcaster of National Assembly sittings.
After Kexx surfaced on Saturday he posted a message on social media saying “I’m overwhelmed with all the messages, calls, visits and texts. I appreciate all your supports. But since the matter is before the police and CID investigation division, I reserve my comment on [the] issue until the right authorities exhaust their investigation.”
“Y’all have [the] right to your opinions on [which] issue to believe or not which I have no issue with, but what’s important to me is my conscience and the outcome of the investigation. Let justice guide our action. Thank you. The struggle continues” he said.
Police Alleged Fraudulent Marabout Scam
In another twist of events, the Poliso presser highlighted that Kexx filed a report “at the LK German Police Station on Saturday 27th March 2021, alleging being kidnapped by unidentified individuals. He claimed to have been dumped at Erinjang Cemetery on the 24th March 2021, which information he knew to be false and misleading.”
In what can only be described as an ongoing investigation the presser detailed that the Police “investigations revealed that, Kemeseng Sanneh was never kidnapped or abducted by any individual. Sufficient evidence gathered showed that he was not kidnapped and placed in a car as alleged; but instead, he spent that very night in his house with a Marabout from Senegal who’s service he hired.”
More worrying is the Police claim that “further investigations revealed that Kemeseng Sanneh was involved in a fraudulent marabout scam, details of which are subject of further investigations.” The presser concluded by soliciting information from the public in connection with the case and warned the public “to be law-abiding” and to guard “against spreading false and misleading information on crime for any reason.”
