The eight-year-old son of Gambian President-elect Adama Barrow has died after being bitten by a dog on Sunday, January 15th.



Habibou Barrow, born in 2009, reportedly died on the way to the hospital in Manjai near Banjul. He was buried this afternoon. Mr Barrow is in the Senegalese capital Dakar ahead of his planned inauguration on Thursday. It is not clear if he returned for the funeral.



The President-elect's media team confirmed the news to local Gambia news on Monday.
"Yes, Habitou Barrow passed away last night after being bitten by a dog. He was the 8 years old son of Adama Barrow's second wife. He will be laid to rest today at 2 pm,"

Mr. Barrow won the presidential election last year but outgoing President Yahya Jammeh has refused to accept the result after initially conceding defeat and congratulating Mr. Barrow. Mr. Barrow was advised to remain in neighbouring Senegal for his own safety.
