The former Junta Vice Chairman Sanna Bairo Sabally has arrived in The Gambia on Tuesday afternoon. Sabally entered The Gambia, through the Karang/Amdalai border, on the Northern region of The Gambia, unimpeachable sources have told the Freedom Newspaper. Multiple sources have confirmed seeing Sabally at the border.
“Pa, just a quick one—Sanna Sabally arrived at Amdalai/Karang border around 15:55 Gambian time. I believe he has been recalled by the TRRC,” said our source.
Sabally recently testified before Gambia’s TRRC, where he admitted to allegations of torture, and murder of some former army officers, who were linked to the November 11 abortive coup. Sabally says the execution of the accused officers was sanctioned by the military junta led by dictator Jammeh. Among the AFPRC council members at the time were: Yahya Jammeh, Sanna Bairo Sabally, Edward Singhateh, Yankuba Touray, and the late Saibu Hydara.
Touray was recently charged for the murder of Ousman Koro Ceesay, Gambia’s former Finance Minister. He was also slammed with ten additional murder charges by Justice Minister Baa Tambadou. Those charges stem out from the execution of the ten army officers back in November of 1994.
It is not clear if the Justice Ministry intends to use Sabally as a witness to testify against his former junta colleague Yankuba Touray. This paper can authoritatively report that Sabally is currently in The Gambia.
