Gambian Police Chief Says Government Agents Killed 44 Ghanaians and other West African Nationals!!â€¦..Police Detective Accuses Jammeh of â€œlying â€œ To The World
â€œThe other 36 death bodies were also buried at Siffoe near his farm and two escaped to casamance. In fact, if it were not that daybreak was coming all the bodies found at Brufut would have been taken to the Siffoe Farm for disposal. Jammeh must face the ICC and defend himself.â€ he posited.
A top Gambian Police Chief has rejected President Yahya Jammehâ€™s claims that the 44 Ghanaians were murdered and dumped into The Gambian by unknown individuals. The police official speaking on condition of strict anonymity accuses President Jammeh of â€œlying to the worldâ€ by shamelessly trying to cover atrocities committed by his hit men in Banjul. The police official who had been involved in the investigations of the Ghanaian massacre said the Ghanaians were indeed murdered in cold blood by agents of The Gambian Government. â€œI was shocked and dismayed reading in your online newspaper that Yahaya Jammeh is denying killing the 44 Ghanaians in 2005.His denial is ofcourse a confession because if he is claiming that those Ghanaians were killed and dumped in the Gambia, where are the remains of the other 36 bodies? Let him tell us, beacuse only eight bodies were found at the Brufut bushes on that faithful day.â€ said the official.
Whatâ€™s disturbing at this hour is that, President Jammehâ€™s own Crime Secret Police are disputing his claims. The police detective said he was involved in the investigations of the said murder case involving Ghanaians and other West African Nationals. The official says Jammehâ€™s denial was calculated to deceive the world as he insists that the Gambian state had hands in the murder of these West African National. The official tells the Freedom Newspaper that there was no iota of truth in Mr.Jammehâ€™s statement. He accuses President Jammeh of playing with the intelligence of Ghanaians and the Civilized world.
â€œHis denial came rather too late to be believed and above all, no diplomats were invited to identify the bodies at the Banjul mortuary. The bodies were kept for only seven days when they began decomposing and finally buried in a mass grave.The national radio/TV never carried any news about the incident. Jammeh is just fooling himself and justice must be seen to be done.â€ said a Police official at the Serious Crime Unit in Banjul.
The police chief says some of the murdered Ghanaians were buried near President Yahya Jammehâ€™s farm in Kanilai. He promises to release pictures of the murdered Ghanaians to the Freedom Newspaper in days to come. The official says once he laid his hands on the pictures taken by the Forceâ€™s Scientific and Support Unit, he would release the photographs to the Freedom Newspaper. He maintains that the Ghanaians were murdered and buried in The Gambia, by agents of The Gambian Government.
Â â€œThe other 36 death bodies were also buried at Siffoe near his farm and two escaped to casamance. In fact, if it were not that daybreak was coming all the bodies found at Brufut would have been taken to the Siffoe Farm for disposal. Jammeh must face the ICC and defend himself.â€ he posited.
The official whose identity remains as a mystery to the Government of The Gambia, informed the Freedom Newspaper that his colleagues were working very hard to trace the official supplying such state secrets to the Freedom Newspaper. The official says he would not rest until Yahya Jammeh is dragged to the International Criminal Court to face justice.
President Jammeh is currently on a five day official visit in Taiwan. These revelations would no doubt rattles his Government battered image. The Police Chief has vowed to supply more information to the Freedom Newspaper on condition that the paperâ€™s Editors were prepared to guarantee his safety and personal protection.
Freedom Editors had assured the police chief of his personal safety and security. The Editors said the Freedom Newspaper valued its sources and would do everything humanely possible to protect them.
Gambiaâ€™s President had earlier denied having hands in the murder of these West African Nationals. Jammeh says he had no reason to kill Ghanaians and that his Government was being accused wrongly. A claim, dismissed by the police chief. The police chief maintains that the killings were state sponsored. He accuses Jammeh of trying to cover Security officials linked to the murder of these Ghanaians.
