Chief Justice Fagbenle stays put

 

The past couple of days have been rife with rumours and speculation that Justice Emmanuel O. Fagbenle, the Chief Justice of The Gambia, had left the jurisdiction of The Gambia.

Some have in the past few days been spreading information that the judiciary boss had suddenly disappeared from The Gambia.

On Tuesday evening at the Brusubi Turntable, this reporter was told by two men that the Chief Justice was seen in Basse in the Upper River Region leaving the country.

Yesterday morning, this reporter was again told at the Brikama car park that the Chief Justice left the country last Friday, 30 December 2016, and was seen in Guinea-Conakry going to Nigeria.

This prompted the reporter to immediately travel to Banjul to ascertain the veracity of the information and, upon arrival at the Judiciary complex in Banjul, according to our reporter; the Chief Justice’s vehicle was not at the parking lot.

However, when he arrived at the Chief Justice’s Chambers, this reporter was informed that the Chief Justice had stepped out.

He decided to wait and, after about 30 minutes, the Chief Justice’s car rolled in and he alighted from his vehicle and walked into his office, then they exchanged pleasantries, wishing him a happy New Year.

After waiting for a while, one of the secretaries beckoned this reporter to the Chief Justice’s Chambers, where Justice Fagbenle was informed that rumours are rife that he had fled the country.

The Chief Justice responded that he is in his office, where this reporter met him.

Chief Justice Fagbenle added that The Gambia is a peaceful country, and that he prays for peace in the country; and advised that Gambians should not compromise the peace that the country is known for and has been enjoying over the years.

He said the situation in the country presently is not a film or movie; rather he cautioned the people to beware of those who are bent on using social media to tear the country apart, citing those in the Diaspora.

    Fagbenle ITS GOOD THAT YOU KNOW THAT THE GAMBIA IS A PEACEFUL COUNTRY WE LIKE IT THAT WAY AND WANT IT TO REMAIN SUCH.
    PLEASE TELL YOUR COMPATRIOT JUDGES THAT ARE SAID TO BE HERE TO CHEAT US AND OVERTURN THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE TO PACK THEIR BAGS AND LEAVE.
    THE BACKLASH WILL SHOCK THE WHOLE WORLD BUT THE NIGERIANS IN THE GAMBIA WOULD BEAR THE BRUNT OF OUR WRATH.
    YOU CAN CAN TAKE A KILLO OF HIGH EXPLOSIVES AND ABUSE IT LIKE DROPPING AND HITTING IT AND NOTHING HAPPENS BUT BUT ADD A DETONATOR THE SIZE OF A PEN AND YOU GET A MASSIVE EXPLOSION

    AT THIS VERY MOMENT YOU AND YOUR PEOPLE ARE THE DETONATORS BEING INSERTED INTO HIGH EXPLOSIVE THAT RUNS THROUGH THE COUNTRY.

    WHATEVER BLOOD IS SPILT AFTER THIS IS PURELY ON YOU AND I FOR ONE WILL SEEK VENGENCE ALL THE WAY TO HELL :twisted: :twisted:

    hello fellow Gambians,

    Remember that God is watching over us in this crucial time of our lives. What is politics to destroy the lives of innocent people and their properties? If the contending parties cannot solve their problems peacefully then we the voters are ready to go back to the polls and vote transparently who we wish to work for us. message to Senegal and the ECOWAS, we do not wish to see anyone come in and destroy lives and properties in the name of intervention. We Gambian Voters are ready to sacrifice our hard earned incomes to go back to the polls rather to see the lives of our innocent people lost in the name of dirty politics. long live The Gambia long live the peaceful and tolerant and exceptional people of The Gambia. Gambians loves each other would not standby to see the politicians destroy lives and properties of our dear and peaceful motherland The Gambia.

    THEY WILL PUT AN END TO THIS NONSENSE BEFORE IT GETS TO EUROPEAN SHORES.

    :-| Fangbele and his colleagues will do themselves, the Gambian people and the world at large a great service by upholding the rule of law by rendering a fair decision to the recently contested election results held in our country. History and posterity will be there no matter to what decision they would have come up with. We can only hope for the affirmation of the declared results seemingly to the evitable peaceful conclusion of the whole fiasco.
