In a fact-finding mission, the National Security Council yesterday visited the Foni border villages, showing a renewed political will to address the challenges faced by the conflict-affected inhabitants. 

Government and security officials, including the Minister of Defense, IGP, CDS, Minister of Interior, Deputy Director of SIS, and National Security Adviser, met with local authorities in Gifanga, Gilanfari Gekess Karunott, Ballen, and Kantimba. 

Villagers shared their difficult experiences due to the Cassamance conflict. The visit comes after recent shelling and heavy gunfire, allegedly caused by Senegalese ECOMIG soldiers in Bwiam.

The Minister expressed deep concern for the challenges faced by the villagers in the Foni border villages. He assured them that the government is committed to finding solutions and bringing relief to their communities. 

The Minister emphasized the importance of addressing the conflict and ensuring the safety and well-being of the affected inhabitants.

Honorable Almameh Gibba, The National Assembly Member for Foni Kansala asserted that the recent shelling and heavy gunfire in Casamance emanated from the Senegalese ECOMIG soldiers stationed in Bwiam following their pursuit of a  timber truck years back.

Speaking to journalists in Kanilai, Honourable Gibba justified that they decided to retaliate with random bombardment as a result of the  humiliation they faced.

Modou Lamin Colley, the Alkalo of Karunorr  Village, Foni Kansala told the National Security Council delegation on the tour that the Senegalese military threatened to burn their village.

The military he revealed accused them of harboring an enemy who implants land mines in the Senegalese territory.
