It has been 91 days since opposition political activist Ebrima Solo Sandeng was tortured to death by Gambian security agents, yet the government remains tight-lipped on how and why he died or who participated in the cold-blooded murder. The Jammeh regime that has innocent Gambian blood on its hands only provided scanty information on the murder of the Gambia’s Steve Biko who died less than two weeks after being elected the Organising Secretary of the United Democratic Party.
In a court affidavit, the government said Mr. Sandeng died of resuscitation. This leaves a lot of room for questions: why was he hurriedly buried which contradicts constitutional requirement a Coroner’s Inquest should determine the cause of the death of those in state custody? What happened to Solo before he needed resuscitation? Why was he mot taken to the hospital? So many unanswered questions have only flared tempers as well added petrol to a rising fire. Majority of Gambians agree that the government should have come clean on Solo Sandeng story, prosecute and punish those found culpable. Offering apology and compensation to the Sandeng family and release all those detained in connection to his death would be the beginning of healing and ultimately closure. But dictators are natural cowards who fear the consequences of admitting fault that’s why Yahya Jammeh chose not to go that route.
However, what the government cannot succeed is to remain sitting on such a public interest news, especially in this Smart phone Era. Besides, Solo Sandeng’s brutal murder and sentencing of opposition leadership and supporters have since changed the dynamic in the country. Even security agents cannot shut up. That’s why some spy agents have decided to leak the names of thugs who tortured Solo to death, beat and raped women protesters on April 15.
Contrary to widespread belief, not a single member of Junglers or Black Black (Yahya Jammeh’s killer machine squad) was involved in the fatal tortured. All of these work for the National Intelligence Agency. In fact, some of them are errand boys who only provide information to the agency. These murderers who have enjoyed official indemnity are walking on the streets with pride while Solo’s remains rest under a cashew tree at the NIA outpost at in Kombo North.
Below are the names of people who participated in April 15 torture, rape and murder:
Saihou Jeng (alias Sir Jeng), Director of Operations,
Bojang Director of Technical Affairs
Ebou Sanyang (alias Jet Li) orderly or informant to Louis Gomez, deputy DG
Malang Sonko, boy boy (errand boy) to DG Yankuba Badjie
Thank you very much Kairo News for living up to your integrity of facilitating enablement to topple dictatorship which isn’t faraway sooner than assumed; these good for nothing murderers exposed, their associates & cohorts, must all have to either disappear with their cold-blooded murderous masters on the demise of the MURDEROUS kanilai KILLER DEVIL or face the consequences for the rape & barbarities meted out to defenceless Gambians at ANY time under the MURDEROUS OPPRESSIVE kanilai FIEFDOM era; SURELY that day of reckoning is beckoning faster sooner; Insha Allah…
Long live in Gambia…
These killers must face the music sooner or later . Their wickedness and heartlessness has been exposed for the world to see. Thank you kaironews for exposing these killers .
Thanks Kaironews for a job well done.
Please share the names of these criminals with all online papers so we can get their pictures attached and exposed to the world and family members.
Great job!! Well done, please do your best and provide their pass port size photos- that will be a plus.
God bless your media
Well done Kaironews, for digging a bit deeper into State crimes, accessing and sharing information that could be vital in holding people to account, when the time comes.
The publication of this Information may also serve as a deterrence and warning to others within the state security apparatus, that they cannot hide their crimes from the ever watchful eyes of the Gambian People, even if these are committed in their deepest and darkest dungeons, and that they will be brought to justice when the ‘umbrella’ that is shielding them is no more..
However, there is a need to remind ourselves that Kaironews is not a court of law that can prosecute and convict, and that those mentioned on its pages are only alleged perpetrators who should be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Saint @Bax, those citizens who find themselves a job in that slaughter house cannot be innocent of premedidated crimes against their fellow citizens in any way. We can be schooled in the Gambia to be doing something else legal in the public space than filling an Nia vacancy form. Almost all of those thugs should have to testify voluntarily now if they don’t want doing it involuntarily in the future.
I am no saint and I do not see the need for any sacarsm here. My belief, which reflects the point I made here, is that due process (es) must be followed, not only to establish the facts about the roles and extent of participation of these individuals in the crimes alleged, but also to prosecute, convict and punish accordingly.
Obviously, you seem to hold a different view, which you are entitled to, but it is important to note that our current predicament is the result of a total disregard for due process…
And how anyone can contribute to positive changes in governance by advocating disregard for due process, is completely beyond me.. (excuse my ignorance)
Can’t you see that by finding every employee of the NIA ( A state agency) guilty of premeditated crimes against citizens, you have effectively arrogated to yourself the powers of ‘prosecutor’, ‘judge’ and ‘jury’ : all in one…and have delivered your guilty verdict without giving the accused any chance to be heard. That’s an improvement from Yaya Jammeh, isn’t it…?
Have you seen it a formidable duty to urge those citizens at such criminal installations in the Gambia to dissent at large and give testimonies to or confess to serious human rights abuses and killings they may have partaken? Or wait till the drive knocks you down to in order to complain?
One has to be with the saints even if you are not one of them or you be with the demons bro.
I really lîke the kairo news because they tell the truth and enlighten people. These killers are bastards, their children are bastards and their parents too are bastards for bringing the worst and bastards in this world. No wonder because wrong people bring wrong children in this world. They should be eleminated straight away.. They must pay for their crimes. Sentence them to Death.
Thank You but still the death penalty should be done.
