Abduction of Former Gambian Ambassador to the AU (H.E. Momodou Sajo Jalllow
This is an Urgent Message informing you that Former Gambian Ambassador to the African Union (AU), H.E. Mr. Momodou Sajo Jallow has been abducted on Friday morning September 2nd by the Gambian National Intelligence Agency(NIA) following the directives of The President Yahya Jammeh and his Vice President Madame Isatou Njie Saidy. This abduction took place less than 24 hrs after Yahya Jammeh rescinded Mr. Jallow’s appointment as Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister.
Mr. Jallow was appointed on August 23rd. We believe his arrest has to do with the online Freedomnewspaper anchor’s political analysis questioning former Ambassador Jallow’s loyalty to the Jammeh government since Mr. Jallow’s wife (Jainaba Bah) is a staunch militant of the opposition United Democratic Party (UDP). No one knows where they have taken Mr. Jallow as all attempts to reach him on his fone by his family, relatives and concerned well-wishers have failed. We appeal for you to share this story with the hope that we can have some prompt support in soliciting for the immediate and unconditional release of Mr. Jallow to help save his life as we believe he is in great danger at the moment. Thanking you in advance for your help in this very difficult period for us, his family!
