Two Gambian Soldiers fingers Yahya Jammeh for the execution of 44 Ghanaians.


Two Gambian soldiers and members of a hit squad once controlled by former President Yahya Jammeh on Tuesday fingered the former president for ordering execution of 56 West African migrants, including 44 Ghanaians.

According to reliable sources, the two were Lieutenant Malick Jatta and Corporal Omar A. Jallow. They made this revelation to Gambia’s Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC).

They confirmed that the migrants were executed by the “Junglers” squad, a paramilitary force that took orders from Jammeh, across the Gambian border in Senegalese territory.

Its campaign coordinator, William Nyarko, asked the Government of Ghana to take an active interest in the proceedings at the TRRC and seek justice for the Ghanaians, adding, other West African states, including Nigeria, Togo, and Ivory Coast whose nationals were also unlawfully killed should do same for their nationals.

The confessions by Jatta and Jallow corroborate findings in a May 2018 report by Human Rights Watch and TRIAL that the migrants were murdered by the “Junglers.”
