Troops of the Economic Council of West African States (ECOWAS) in The Gambia have reported a large cache of sophisticated arms and ammunition missing from State House in Banjul, the capital.
According to a Gambian newspaper The Point, troops also found that all the air conditioners were loaded with a toxic chemical, which was meant to poison the occupants of any of the rooms.
The deadly chemicals in air conditions and offices were allegedly planted by former President Yahya Jammeh to kill the incoming government led by President Adama Barrow.
The paper added that State Guards officers who were there until Sunday morning are currently being questioned by ECOWAS military officers.
