An autopsy report conducted on the body of Edmond Thomas revealed that his death was not as a result of natural causes. “ My younger brother Edmond Thomas was assassinated yesterday according to an autopsy report,” Ex Army Captain Ebou Jallow said. Thomas’s killers are at large. He was killed at a mechanic shop in Brikama.
Jallow says he suspects that his brother was allegedly murdered by agents loyal to Yahya Jammeh and Edward Singhateh. He says his brother was killed because of his recent revelations on the death of Ousman Koro Ceesay, Gambia’s former Finance Minister.
“ I am still speaking to my uncle Mbye Njie at the hospital. The latest is Edu was doing work at a workshop in a company belonging to Muhammad Bazzi called GEC ( Gambia Electrical….). He was found dead under a truck he was working on. There were bruises on his hands and legs and blood oozing out of his mouth and nose. He was perfectly healthy all day yesterday but all indications appear to lead to a foul play,” Jallow said.
“The killers of my brother are trying to send a strong message. The Gambia is far from being safe. This might be just the beginning. They are not happy that I am speaking out,” he added.
