EYEAFRICA TV: Sinchu Alagie, THE GAMBIA:- Today marks 40 days since the former Inspector General of Police, Mamour Jobe passed away.
The last Islamic rites after death was offered by family members, friends and cross-section of the community who gathered at his residence in Sinchu Alagie. They also recited the holy Quran and prayed for the late police chief.
The death of late IGP Jobe according to many, left a void not only in the Jobe Kunda family but in the country at large.
Papa Alieu Nyang, a relative to the late Jobe, described him as an incredible person who was always doing good things to his fellow humans.
“That is why we never get tired talking about his deeds and wherever we are, we are always praying for him, May Allah have mercy on his soul and grant him the highest place in Jannah,” he added.
Imam Haiba Hydara, the imam of the Banjul International Airport, preached on the importance of doing good deeds as humans.
“The gathering we are seeing since he died to date, shows who Mamour Jobe was. This should be a lesson to everyone present here because as a human being, you don’t know anything that will be said in your absence. And for Mamour all we are saying in his absence is the goods he did,” he said.
The late police chief Mamour Jobe died last month at Medicare Clinic in Brusubi aged 61
