The woman activist who had gone missing after her life was threatened for exposing Gambian police brutality reportedly broke the silence. Aminata Manneh, affectionately called Minah, posted a message on Facebook informing the world that she is out of harm’s way. Until she broke the silence, many people believed the third year Gambia University student activist might have been secretly kidnapped by state security agents.
It is not clear whether the National Intelligence Agents have hacked into her Facebook account and made postings there or forced Minah to do postings herself. This cannot be ruled out in a country where secret agents are in the habit of creating confusion around secret detentions or abductions.
