Chief Supt. Muhammed Kanteh, head of the State Intelligence Unit (SIU) at The Office Of The President, State House in Banjul has confirmed to The Fatu Network that he has been deployed to the Police Headquarters as deputy Commissioner Prosecution.

According to security sources, Kanteh’s deployment letter from the Ministry of Interior was dated on April 30, but was never delivered to him.

"The IGP then (Landing Kinteh) didn’t act upon the letter, instead, he advised the president to keep Muhammed Kanteh for he was there when Barrow needed him the most," A source told The Fatu Network.

Kanteh is said to have sacrificed a lot to save President Barrow during the impasse. He was one of those responsible for the protection of the President-elect at that time. He was handed over his redeployment letter yesterday.
