Former Secretary General and Head of Civil Service under former President Yahya Jammeh, has said that any person who is ready to attack him is doing it at his own peril because he is ready to defend himself.

Now, a strong supporter of United Democratic Party Momodou Sabally said this in a statement he read at a press conference on Sunday while raising concerns on perceived threats he said to have received from unknown individuals allegedly threatening that he [Sabally] would be attacked, should he visit certain communities.

“I am ready to defend myself in any situation. And any person who is foolish enough to be endured to attack me should know that he is doing it at his own peril,” he warned.

Sabally called on the Inspector General of police to investigate the matter.

“I will go to the police headquarters tomorrow to report these threats. Since the police are silent about these obvious threats when they know about them. I am calling on the IGP to investigate these matters and act accordingly” Sabally said

Momodou Sabally was the Gambian Secretary General and Head of the Civil Service from 10 June 2013 till July 2014. He later became Director General of the Gambia Radio and Television Services (GRTS) until his arrest on November 8, 2016. Sabally is now a strong supporter of the Opposition United Democratic Party (UDP).
