Banjul, Gambia, January 10 (Infosplusgabon) - Gambian President, Adama Barrow, Tuesday sued for peace, as he reacted to an incident which left opposition Alliance for Patriotic Reconciliation and Construction (APRC) members seriously injured.


A large opposition convoy, conveying largely supporters of the party that ruled tiny West African nation for 22 years, came under attack Monday as they drove past Mankamang Kunda, the hometown of Mr Barrow.


The party, founded by ousted President Yahya Jammeh, is on its first nationwide tour after its defeat by President Barrow.


According to a presidency statement, made available PANA on Tuesday, President Barrow and the government wished to express regret over the ‘unfortunate’ incident.


“In the New Gambia, incidents of this nature in any part of the country, whether the birthplace of the President or any other place, is regrettable, as we are One People, One Nation,” the statement said.


It added: “In this spirit of One Gambia, people are encouraged and expected to go about their economic, social and political activities in a responsible and civil manner, as a sure way to jointly build a better and brighter Gambia for all.


“As a responsible government, the natural cause [sic] of action to take, as is expected, is to investigate into the incident so as to get to the bottom of it.


“The President has therefore instructed that the situation is urgently and diligently looked into by the competent institutions so as to avoid repetition of such unfortunate acts.”
