Demfai is a remote border village in CRR North. Itís very close to the Senegalese border.

Letís hope that this is not going to be a trend.

Unfortunatly those living close to border areas in many countries have a similar problem,for the police to conduct an investigation to find the culprits is very difficult.

The Gambia Police should try a work closely with the Senegalese counterparts in these border areas in CRR North. Cross border stealing of animals is very common specially around Tobaski. As for the armed robbery, this is a new thing as far as I can remember. It must be traumatic for these poor villagers. I hope villagers could establish some kind of mobile WhatsApp groups so that they could send warnings to each other and the security forces in such cases.

Armed robbery is in the news. In our yesterdayís edition, we ran a story in which armed robbers attacked a shop in Demfai, a small community in Sami District, Central River Region on Friday.

Ten people including children were said to be injured, and the armed robbers made away with two million CFA and 7, 000 dalasis before the arrival of the security personnel at the scene.

It is fact that wherever there is good, evil will be lurking around the corner looking for an opportunity to strike.

Indeed, the recent armed robbery in this small community in Central River Region is not only appalling; it certainly paints a bad picture of the current security of the country.

Armed robbery is a terrible social phenomenon that no one would ever have imagined could rear its ugly head in the country. It was a serious problem in the rural Gambia for several years, but the increased deployment of security personnel has helped address the issue. But it seems like the ugly menace is again resurfacing in parts of Central and Upper River Regions.

Certainly, these gangs of notorious criminals have become braver and are behaving very much like the savages they are.

What happened in Demfai is quite sad. It is such a shameful thing to happen. We call on the Police to launch an immediate investigation into the matter and also increase their daily and night patrols in the area to stem the surge of violent robbery in the area.

Looking at the nature of materials these armed robbers were equipped with clearly demonstrate their brutal nature and that they could even kill to achieve their objectives.

Remember, in this current democratic dispensation there is much to enjoy rather than having to venture into evil and dangerous actions that is meant to inflict pain, harm and steal peopleís joy at a time when everyone should be working towards greater national development.

Letís join hands to make the Smiling Coast of Africa a shining example of peaceful coexistence, tolerance and compassion.
