EYEAFRICA TV: Sinchu Alagie, THE GAMBIA:- President Adama Barrow has payed a condolence visit to the family of late IGP Mamour Jobe on Monday at family residence in Sinchu Alagie.
In paying tribute, the Gambian leader said the late IGP was not only a colleague but also a family, who was always there for everybody.
“His death is a death of the whole nation, not just Jobe Kunda or Ballangar. Mamour was head of police but his role went beyond,” he said.
The head of state described IGP Jobe’s sudden death as a great loss to the nation.
“Mamour’s death can only be done in this way, you can’t do all these heavy work, do all the good things, then God end up paying something else, that won’t happen. His death is really sucking and we have lost greatly. But only God knows and whatever he does, he does for a reason.”
Calling on friends and colleagues of Mr. Jobe to remain firm as before, he said:”Because as a human, your presence is not the problem, until you left, that is the most difficult part. Our relationship with Mamour should not only stop at work, it should go beyond that.”
The late police chief Momour Jobe died last month at Medicare Clinic in Brusubi aged 61
The late IGP Jobe served in various units of the Police Force for about 40 years and spent the greater part of his career as the administrator of the Police Training School in Yundum.
In the same vein, President has also paid condolence visit to the family of late Grand Khalipha of Basori, Alhajie Yusupha Darboe.
The late Khalifa general is believed to have lived for over one hundred years until the sad event occurred last month at Africmed hospital.
The grand marabout, who had been a Khalifa for more than 43 years, was described by many as a great man in the history of The Gambia.
