"Gambia army chief of staff and police chief say they are no longer loyal to him”, Kristin Palitza, African Correspondent for German Press Agency based in Cape town said in a tweet.

Banjul has been turned into a ‘ghost town’ with tens of thousands of people fleeing the capital and at least 26,000 crossing the border into Senegal
