The Gambia’s Vice President Badara Alieu Joof has died of illness in India, President Adama Barrow said on Wednesday.
Joof, 65, was appointed vice president of the West African country in 2022. He previously served as education minister from 2017 to 2022.
Barrow said on Twitter that Joof had died “after a short illness”, without providing further detail, including when he died.
Fellow #Gambians, it is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing away of my #VicePresident, His Excellency, Badara Alieu Joof. The sad event took place in India after a short illness. May Allah grant him Jannahtul Firdawsi.
