Video and pictures as Jammeh Flees Gambia, goes into exile
President Adama Barrow will return to Gambia shortly as Jammeh leaves the country for Equatorial Guinea.
Gambia’s ex-leader Yahya Jammeh ruled for 22 years and has gone into exile, bringing an end to a protracted political crisis following presidential elections last month.
Jammeh boarded a small, unmarked plane at an airport in the capital, Banjul, late on Saturday, alongside Guinea’s President Alpha Conde after two days of negotiations over a departure deal.
He landed in Conakry, Guinea’s capital, but set off again for Equatorial Guinea, where he will remain in exile, the president of the Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS), Marcel Alain de Souza, said.
