The Wuli Development Association (WDA) has threatened to file a petition to the high court in Banjul against one Amadou Gagigo, a livestock dealer.
The Association members said they are planning to file the petition in October 8th, alleging the man of stealing their village livestock.
Saibeh Nasso, a member of the association said they would go to the court to show concern about the way their livestock are being stolen. He said livestock stealing is a great concern of their people.
“We are calling on all our people to come out on that day to show concern,” Saibeh Nasso said.
Ms Mariama Singhateh, also a member of the association said stealing has scared them from rearing animals. She called on the people of Wuli to come together to put an end to this problem.
“It has seriously affected women who are engaged in animal husbandry,” said Ms Singhateh.
She said the police in the region are not doing enough to curb the cases reported to them several times but to no avail.
Honourable Suwaibou Touray, NAM for Wuli East said the Offices of the Interior Minister and the IGP were informed, saying that something positive would come out of it.
Meanwhile, the NAM for Wuli West, Honourable Sida Jatta, has advised them not to take the law into their own hands but to follow the due process of the law.
