In a statement shared by Poliso Magazine, the Office of the IGP described the allegation as not only misleading but malicious.

‘’The attention of The Office of the Inspector General of Police has been drawn to a publication on a Facebook page with the profile name ‘ I Paid A Bribe’. However, the writer claimed that there was a huge scandal at the Police Headquarters, alleging The Inspector General of Police, Abdoulie Sanyang of being involved in a D100 million fraud further claiming that the IGP is planning to leave the country’’

‘’This allegation is not only misleading but malicious in all forms and those behind this blatant and unimaginable fabrications are hell-bent on tarnishing the image of our great IGP whose reputable character and loyalty to the Gambian people is unquestionable’’

While details about the alleged corruption are yet to be known, the office of the Inspector General of Police says IGP Sanyang since his appointment in 2021 has transformed The Gambia Police into one of the best within the subregion, thus describing the allegations as ‘calculated with smear intentions to hurt the reputable image of the IGP.
