Gambia: Kanilai military camp re-opens


Kanilai Garrison Camp, now renamed Kanilai Batalion, has now been re-opened, the army spokesman, Lt Colonel Omar B. Bojang, has confirmed.


He said the closure of the camp after the political impasse, when the ex-president Yahya Jammeh left, led to security vacuum in the Kanilai area.

“We made security assessment and we felt there is need to fill the security vacuum because Kanilai has borders with Cassamance,” Bojang said.

The camp is now headed by Lt Colonel Sarjo Jarju.
