David Colley, former director of the Gambia Prison Services has been arrested. His arrest is in conncetion to the death of Baba Jobe, former National Assembly Member and close ally of former president Jammeh.
Sources said Colley was picked-up on Tuesday evening and was detained at the Kairaba Police Station, where he was undergoing interrogation.
According to sources, Colley was transferred to the Serious Crime Unit in Banjul on Friday.
The late Baba Jobe was charged with economic crime and jailed for 9 years during dictator Jammeh's era. Upon completion of his prison term, ex-president Jammeh refused to release him.

David Colley was sacked by the new government in February last year and was briefly detained before being released without charge.
