Police have extended their crackdown on two news outlets, urging their immediate shutdown as they broadcast the protest that was spearheaded by the Operation 3 Years Jotna – a pressure group demanding President Adama Barrow’s resignation.

The movement staged a peaceful protest which turned violent on Sunday resulting to the arrest of tens of protesters.

The two radios were King FM and Home Digital FM.
