Thousands of supporters of Gambia’s former leader, Yahya Jammeh, have demonstrated on the outskirts of the capital Banjul, demanding his return from self-exile.

The protest came days after Jammeh was heard in an audio recording insisting that his country guarantees his right to return.

Calls for his return from Equatorial Guinea have grown recently as tensions heighten over President Barrow’s decision to stay in office for five years, reversing a previous pledge to step down after three years.
