JammehIn collaboration with human rights and civil society groups, in particular, Human Rights for All, Kairo News is publishing the list of civilians who have so far been arrested, detained and interrogated in the aftermath of the attack on State House in Banjul last week.

Based on the information we have gathered through our tangible sources, the spy agents are conducting the arrest while the deadly elements of the Gambian dictatorship – the feared military intelligence and military police – inflict brutal tortures on these vulnerable detainees purposely to get confessionary statements.

Our sources are convinced that the NIA agents are civil as compared to what they referred to as “Jammeh clan men” who dominate military intelligence and military police assault team. Among the brutal torturers are also the state guards, our sources alleged.

Kairo News calls on human rights organisations, foreign embassies in the Gambia to be aware that arrests are going on. We will try to come up with the list of security officers detained and may be going through hell.
