This is the third time the duo has been arrested by police over a land dispute between the Gambia Government and Global HOMM.

There were first arrested alongside one Gilbert Manga at the property and charged in a court battle that saw the government changing its charge sheet on numerous occasions. The trio were later discharged after the government failed to put forward tangible evidence to try to convince the court. They later took the Government to the High Court which ruled that they were illegally detained.

Recently the high court awarded them D200, 000 damages after ruling that their arrest in November 2021 was unlawful and that their rights has been violated. Meanwhile journalist Yusuf Taylor of Gainako was also arrested and briefly detained.
