Pressure on Mr Jammeh to step down is increasing

Gambian President Yahya Jammeh will be "strongly sanctioned" if he tries to stay in power, the UN's regional envoy, Mohammed Ibn Chambas, has said.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, along with the US, also urged the Gambian security forces to leave the country's electoral commission office, which they seized on Tuesday.

The army could compromise "sensitive electoral material", Mr Ban said.

Mr Jammeh initially conceded defeat to Adama Barrow before changing his mind.

A visit by the leaders of Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone on Tuesday failed to convince him to hand over power.

A number of African leaders including President John Mahama are in Gambia as ECOWAS initiates efforts to get that country’s President Yahya Jammeh to step down after losing the elections.

Jammeh at 29  took over the reins of power in 1994 in a bloodless coup d'etat which removed Dawda Jawara from office.

Seen as a dictator, Jammeh has been in office for 22 years after winning three separate elections.

His fourth attempt at the presidency was foiled by Adama Barrow who defeated him in the 2016 election.
