Amadou Samba, Top Associate Of Yahya Jammeh Arrested In Senegal

A Gambian businessman with ties to the country’s former autocratic ruler has been arrested by the police in Dakar, the Senegalese media reports.
Amadou Samba and ex-Senegalese Minister of Energy, Samuel Sarr were arrested after a meeting with former President Yahya Jammeh’s wife, Zineb Jammeh.
The meeting had happened in the Beluga Restaurant in Dakar, and the men are now being questioned by Senegalese authorities.
Samba is thought to be managing Jammeh’s assets but was last month seen with President Adama Barrow during the launching of the construction of a new medical center.
Jammeh’s assets have been frozen by Gambian authorities following allegations of corruption and financial mismanagement.
At least 180 of his properties, 15 companies, and 95 bank accounts have been affected by the embargo.
Human rights defenders and pro-democracy campaigners have been asking for Samba’s arrest since Jammeh’s ouster.
Senegal played the leading role in the military offensive that forced Jammeh to leave power. Its soldiers make up the majority of the West African troops securing the Gambia.
Gambia’s security continues to be under threat and the army has arrested at least four people and investigating an unspecified number of people for mutiny.
Senegal is taking seriously reports of Jammeh’s loyalists in the army working with those that have deserted and his close associates plotting to destabilize the small West African state.
