Dakar, June 14 (APS) – A "peaceful" gathering that the platform "Aar li nu bokk" planned to organize Place de la Nation on Friday, because, as she said, she was bitterly accused of corruption in connection with the signing of a oil contract and gas in Senegal, was killed in a torrent by an impressive security device deployed after Dakar Prefecture's decision to ban this event, APS said.
Police deposited early on the scene of the meeting scheduled for 14 hours and also blocked all access roads to Place de la Nation, as well as those leading to Boulevard du Centenaire.
Occasionally, some clashes between demonstrators and the police were recorded, and the police managed to disperse demonstrators with tear gas.
The Dakar Prefecture, referring to "real threats to riots on the public order", banned a gathering that was originally planned this Friday after prayer in the middle of the day.
The governing body, also for its decision, raised fears about "inciting violence through unfair complaints about public institutions, the risks of infiltration by malicious individuals."
The "Aar li nu Bokk" platform was founded following allegations of alleged corruption in the BBC's report on Aliou Salla, brother of state head Macky Salla, according to oil and gas exploration contracts discovered in recent years in Senegal.
Following the spread of this research, she urged citizens to demand greater transparency in the management of the country's natural resources.
During a press conference held in the morning, the leaders of this platform confirmed their desire to "hold a peaceful gathering", despite the fact that the prefectural decree forbade their gathering.
On this occasion, they condemned "this tendency of the authorities to restrict public freedoms".
