“I can confirm that DLEAG operatives stationed at Banjul post office apprehended one Marie Sheriff Tambedou, an adult male, Gambian national and a resident of Kerr Serign with two bags containing cannabis. One of the bags contained five small sachets while the other contained a small sachet. Therefore, the charges will be possession of drugs since the quantity is below 2 kg,” he said.

PRO Saidybah said he was informed that the suspect was accordingly granted bail but other sources said he was still being held as we went to press.
