Gambian Chief of Defense Staff Ousman Bargie is appealing to all citizens and non citizens who fled Gambia following the political uncertainty to return.

Embattled Yahaya Jammeh has agreed to step down and seek asylum in Guinea.

It is following this development that Chief of Defence Staff Ousman Bargie is calling on the citizenry to return.

He told DW Africa that the safety and security of the citizenry and non Gambians is guaranteed hence nobody should habour any fear in returning.

He added that they will welcome the ECOMOG troops deployed to the country with a cup of tea and not fight them.
