According to a Gambian journalist and Human Rights activist, President Yahya Jammeh of Gambia has fueled and parked his plane in the middle of the tarmac ready for escape.

The escape comes as a second option should the ECOWAS troops swoop in on him.

According to the reporter, the president's pilot has also been instructed to be on standby amid the political tension in the country.

This just comes after the president declared a state of emergency, just two days before he is supposed to cede power after losing elections last month. In a national TV address, Jammeh said on Tuesday the measure was necessary because of "the unprecedented and extraordinary amount of foreign interference" in a December 1 presidential vote, which he lost to opposition leader Adama Barrow.

Meanwhile,reports have it that Nigeria soldiers will, on Wednesday (today), arrive at a base of the Economic Community of West African States troops in Senegal to ensure that President Yahya Jammeh of the Gambia steps down on Thursday, January 19.

Nigerian warship, NNS UNITY, is also heading for the coast of The Gambia to join the operation.
