"Please step down, life is short": Jammeh's lawyer quits, begs president to leave power




President Yahya Jammeh's personal lawyer, Edward Gomez, has fled to neighbouring country Senegal and wrote a letter to the Gambian president to step aside in the interest of peace and love of his compatriots, adding that "life is short and everything comes to an end."

In a letter written to Jammeh, Gomez admitted he was working under tremendous pressure and coercion.

He said: "Remember, your Excellency, that life is short and we take nothing with us at the end of it. Our reward lies in our faithful worship and good deeds."

This is coming one hour to the end of his tenure.
