Gambia police warns against music and dance during fasting period

The police has noted that anyone found breaking the new rule would be made to face the wrath of the law.

The police authority has instructed that there shall be no party during Ramadan period.

The Inspector General of Police, Yankuba J.N.Sonko, made this known in a statement, warning them that anyone found guilty of going against the instruction will be punished.

Sonko said, “In honor of the Holy Month of Ramadan, all ceremonies, festivities and programmes that involve drumming, music and dance during the day or at night are prohibited.

“All those engaged in the practice are therefore warned to desist from such acts, otherwise they will be eventually apprehended and face the full force of the law without compromise,”

To help enforce the new rule, Lamin Njie, the Public Relation Office for the police, has called on the citizens to report anyone who breaches the set down code.

Gambia was declared an Islamic state in December 2015 by President Yahya Jammeh, as it is mainly populated by Muslims.
