Robbers have allegedly broken into a Brikama shop owned by a Gambia College lecturer and took his cartons of milk, green tea, bag of onion, bag of Irish potato, and D36,000 cash.
Amadou Jobarteh, who is also the Secretary General of Gambia Students’ Union told The Standard he is devasted by the robbery as he has to start afresh.
“They have taken everything. As we speak nothing tangible is left at the shop. Because of Covid, I was already struggling and now this happens but what can you do? They may have taken my money but not my spirit,” he added.
Jobarteh said he has since reported the matter to the Brikama Nymbai police station and CID officers have visited the shop and assessed the damage.
“This is a very shocking moment for me. I now have to start fresh. All what was in the shop was my hard-earned money. I started the business 7 months ago and I was looking forward to expanding it but all those hopes are dashed. I am calling on anybody who can assist me to do so to help regain my business,” he appealed.
