SoloThe murder story of Gambian opposition activist continues to peel off in bits and pieces.

Solo Sandeng was beaten to death at the headquarters of the National Intelligence Agency on April 15th. The government has confirmed that the man who led over two dozens of protesters demanding for electoral reforms ahead of December general elections, died in state custody. The Jammeh regime quickly buried Solo like “a dog” without explaining how he had died, forcing journalists to embark on truth searching mission.

All our sources confirmed that Solo died of brutal and inhumane torture. “He was tortured until he had passed out,” one NIA operative said. “Solo was unresponsive and was then taken to Saihou Jeng’s office where a fan was blown on him for sometime because torturing agents thought he needed air to start breeding.”

After seeing no signs of breeding, the agents became so concerned that they called Lamin Sanyang, the agency’s doctor to examine Solo. Dr. Sanyang told the agents that he had died earlier on.

Under the command of Director Jeng, the man who coordinated the brutal torture sessions, Solo’s lifeless, naked body was thrown into a vehicle and ferried to Tanji for secret burial.

Like all other torture sessions, that of Solo was also video recorded, burnt on CDs and sent to President Yahya Jammeh to satisfy his bruised ego.
