Jammeh’s surrender followed his discussion with the leaders of Guinea and Mauritania, President Alpha Conde and President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz respectively, who arrived Banjul on Thursday to persuade him to step down.

Report say on Thursday, Jammeh, started a fresh negotiations with ECOWAS, and has demanded an amnesty for any crimes that he may have committed during his 22 years in power, and permission to stay in Gambia, at his home village of Kanilai.

However, ECOWAS Commission president, Mr. Marcel Alain de Souza of Republic of Benin, who made known Jammeh’s demand said they were not acceptable, adding that the only option open to the 51-year-old is to leave The Gambia when Guinea’s president is leaving.

“Has the choice of going with President Alpha Conde… but if that fails we will bring him by force or by will,” de Souza.
