Buba Drammeh, who escaped from the remand at the Mile 2 Prisons, has been rearrested by Interpol in Senegal. Drammeh is standing trial for the murder of one Buba Jammeh during the Berending-Gunjur land dispute.

According to deputy prisons boss  Luke Jatta, they have been officially notified of the rearrest of Drammeh.


“So, this is what we have gathered so, far and we are waiting on the Interpol for any possible repatriation of Drammeh. We understand he (Drammeh) was trying to make a phone call back to the country when he came in contact with the Interpol officials who arrested him,” Jatta told The Standard.

Drammeh, from Berending who was arraigned in October had denied the charges and was remanded pending the outcome of the trial.

A security source had told The Standard when he escaped that there are strong suggestions that Drammeh escaped with the help of an insider.
