The leader of the opposition National Reconciliation Party (NRP) has call on The Gambia government to release the outspoken Imam of Kanifing South Mosque, Baba Leigh.

The Muslim cleric was reportedly arrested by the national intelligence agency on December 3, 2012 and has since gone missing.

Several local politicians and international organisations including the European Union have previously called for his release.

“Baba Leigh has fundamental human rights and liberty as any ordinary Gambian and his continued detention is unconstitutional. The government need to brought him to a court of law or release him,” Mr Bah said during a press briefing at his home in Sinchu Alhagie, West Coast Region.

Mr Bah spoke on a series of pressing issues including the recently concluded local government elections, the execution of 9 death row inmates, and the European Union article 9 political dialogues.
