Gambia’s intelligence chief Harry Sambou has been fired. Sambou’s sacking has to do with recent revelations relating to the execution of Gambian dissidents recently extradited from Guinea Bissau, sources hinted. Mr.Sambou was also briefly held for questioning following his unceremonious sacking. Sources reaching the Freedom Newspaper say the President was unhappy with Harry’s inefficiency. Our recent lead story on the Gambian dissidents in Guinea Bissau was also not taken lightly by the head of state, sources hinted. This paper also gathered that the President was increasingly worried about the ongoing torture revelations made at the Court Marshall in Yundum. Many believe that the President is trying to disown boy Harry at this hour. Mr.Sambou is being investigated on security related issues, sources added. A former diplomat and also a social worker, Harry Sambou was alleged to have been at the centre of the recent torture of army officers implicated in an alleged coup plot against the government of the day. Sources hinted that Harry and some junglers coordinated the torture sessions which left some detainees paralyzed. President Jammeh’s own uncle Abdoulie Kujabi, Captain Bunja Darboe, Razia Diab and other detainees still had traces of torture marks on their bodies, state house sources claimed. Harry is at this hour being used as a sacrificial lamb by the Presidency. The Guinean government recently handed three men believed to be acting under the command of fugitive Kukoi Samba Sanyang, the mastermind of the Gambia’s 1981 abortive rebellion. The men identified as one Sheriffba Jobe, Yankuba Badjie, a former army commander at the President’s home villa Kanilai and one Mr.Sowe. They were arrested at a Bissau Hotel following a tip off that they were allegedly planning to proceed to the Gambia to wage an armed resurrection against the Jammeh government. While reports have it that the men were executed, sources reaching this paper at this hour say the government was alarmed by the news leakage. Unconfirmed reports have it that both Kukoi and officer Badjie have escaped. But the remaining detainees were reportedly killed by their captives. Mr.Sambou was appointed shortly after the alleged arrest and subsequent execution of his predecessor Daba Marena by the government. Mr.Marena was reportedly killed alongside with four other security detainees. The government according to sources believe that the five murdered captives were among the ring leaders of the alleged foiled coup. Meanwhile, a source emailed the Freedom Newspaper recently regarding the killing of the Gambian dissidents who were handed by the Guinean authorities said he met the former army chief of staff Ndure Cham at a neighboring country. The source said Ndure was alive and was going on his normal life. The source said he had important state matters to share with the Gambian public and therefore promises to get back to us. He is yet to send us his surprising breaking news story. We hope the said source is reading us at this hour. We are eagerly waiting for the story.
