The staff and passengers of a Dakar Dem Dik bus were taken hostage this morning in a secret place in Dakar. Fortunately, the gendarmerie intervened in time … The intervention group of the National Gendarmerie (GIGN) contributed to unleash hostages.
First of all, an armored vehicle blocked the way to the Dem Dem Dikk bus before a group arrived at public transport … after some shooting exchanges keeping the lives of hostages, the hijackers are unfortunately, the hostages were released … but the operation was not finished.
The GIGN wants to make sure that all threats have been annihilated. A sniffer dog moves to the bus to help identify a suspicious object that has turned out to be a bomb. The demining unit is working and continues with the help of a robot, far from the threat that it will be destroyed.
The operation ends thus without a single loss in the human life and like advantage the arrest of all the hostages of hostages.
It was … an exercise in the national gendarmerie to face the threats that hit the doors of Senegal.
