Gambia: NIA Rounded UDP Executive Members; Detainees Tortured Overnight!


As Yahya Jammeh is due to arrive in Banjul, his rogue security agents have started cracking down on the UDP’S Executive wing, the Freedom Newspaper can reveal.  Almost half of the UDP’S Executive have been rounded up for questioning. Arrest of opposition officials and their supporters are still ongoing. Close to six UDP Executive members have been arrested.

The UDP Secretariat is yet to make any formal statement on the development. The party is employing lip service on the matter for now. The lack of timely denunciation on the side of the UDP to censor the brutal conduct of the rogue activities of Jammeh’s trigger happy soldiers has been viewed as an abdication of duties on the party’s leadership.

According to competent NIA sources, the first batch of the UDP supporters and National Mobilizer Ebrima Sandeng were brutally tortured by the jungullars last night. The detainees were exposed to degrading treatment by their captives.
