So Sad… Dog Bite Kills Gambia’s President-elect, Adama Barrow’s 8-year old Son



Adama Barrow

Eight-year-old Habibou Barrow, son of Gambia’s President-elect Adama Barrow, is reported to have died on the way to the hospital after being bitten by a dog in Manjai, near the Gambian capital, Banjul yesterday.

Gambian journalist, Fatu Camara confirmed the incident on Twitter saying “he was rushed to the hospital but couldn’t make it.”

Though, Adama Barrow won the election last year, the outgoing President has had a hard time vetting the result.

As a result of this, President-elect Barrow missed his son’s funeral because he was advised to remain in Senegal for his safety.

    All bellanaija readers should pray for the Gambia, Am a Gambian n cant go ten minutes without visiting this website or SDk which i knew thru BN. The child was taken to an auntys house who travelled to Uk, as the place the was living is no more safe n both parents are already in Dakar. The dogs were 3 in number and very aggressive.

      Sorry about your loss and its well with your country. Its quite unfortunate that the innocent boy was caught up in all these mess at such a time.

      I just don’t know what is the problem with some of these African leaders. People don’t want you, must you stay?
      They should learn to allow fresh minds with new ideas pilot the affairs of these countries.
      This is something that can never happen in Nigeria. We won’t take it.

      To the Gambians, don’t lose hope, sooner or later your total liberation will come.

      Are all BNers the same?
      That some think it doesn’t exist doesn’t mean others don’t.

    You can’t take vudu and African magic power from African politics. What has this innocent boy done to deserve this unholy murder? Did trumps child die after hilarry clinton lost the polls? No! I believe. R.i.p young lad.
