Bajinka during his goodÂ Yorro saysÂ Â Â Â Â SOS Sonko named!!
days at the state house!Â Â Â Bajinka was
part of the operation
Few days ago, the Freedom Newspaper received an email from a Gambian who claimed to be privy ofÂ vital information about the Independent Newspaper arson attack. The writer who requested to be telephoned was later contactedÂ by our team of editors to explain his side of the story. He however dismissed recent media reports linking fugitive army Major Kalipha Banjinka to the incident. Due to the insecurity in the country, the concerned Gambian then asked to be given time to prepare a piece, which he promises to dispatch the next day. Today, we received the concerned Gambian mail, in which he named the current Chief of Staff Lang Tombong Tamba, Interior Minister Ousman Sonko and Major Ousman Badjie as one of those who dumped one of the injured arsonists Sanna Manjang to Bajinkaâ€™s Mile 2 residence. The writer says Major Bajinka was at his residence at a material time and had never participated into the Independent Newspaper arson attack. He then went on to explain that it was Major Bajinka who advised Sanna Manjang not to execute a killing operation given to them by President Jammeh to take the life of prominent politician Hamat Bah. The writer says when Corporal Manjang was asked by Jammeh why he failed to kill Hamat Bah, he respondedÂ by telling him that it was Major Bajinka who restrained him fromÂ carrying out the operation. Bajinka he said, was summoned to the Presidential palace the next morning and fired with immediate effect. He says President Jammeh was very mad upon discovering that Bajinka suppresses the said operation to murder Hamat Bah. In a bid to do justice to the story our editors contacted Alagi Yorro Jallow, former Independent Managing Editor and co proprietor. Mr.Jallow dismisses the writerâ€™s claims and insisted that Major Bajinka was part and parcel of the Independent Newspaper arson attack. Jallow says he gathered sufficient evidence which linked the former Army Major to the incident. Mr.JallowÂ who now resides in the US said Bajinka was interviewed by the Gambian police, but to his surprise no action was taken by the then Inspector General of Police Landing 13 Badjie to prosecute the accused persons. Below is the full mail we received from the concerned Gambian together with Mr. Jallowâ€™sÂ reaction. Please read onâ€¦
