Lt. Col. Musa Jammeh will be amongst a host of African football authorities on assignment at this month’s Total Energies Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Known by his sobriquet Falcons, Jammeh, an Executive member of The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) and a FIFA security liaison officer for the GFF, has been appointed by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) as one of the 25 security and safety officers for the biannual event. He will be posted to Baffousam in the western region of Cameroon.
As part of his assignment, the former Gambia national team midfielder will be working with Cameroon’s Local Organising Committee for the security management of matches during the tournament. It is the first for The Gambia to be privileged with such an assignment at CAF’S flagship national team competition.
Lt. Col. Jammeh has had series of trainings in Cairo, Egypt, conducted by CAF and has also attended a retreat in Cameroon held in 2020 to enhance his technical skills in the security and policing of international matches.
Jammeh was security officer in the high-profile decider between Guinea and Mali for the AFCON qualifiers held in Guinea Conakry as well as other CAF Confederations Cup matches played across the continent.
