Yankuba Touray Should Turn State Witness – For Lesser Sentence! 

“Yanks”, or “Ajaratu” as Jammeh nicknamed him, has reached the end of the road. There is no way out of his conviction for The Gambia’s most foul of murders.

But he can still be useful to The Gambia – and help himself too – by turning State Witness and telling the truth to the nation.


There is a man, who is said to have killed some 50 people, 19 murders accepted by him and confirmed by the FBI, who is today a free man in the USA and appears on a very popular utube channel called “Mob Movie Mondays”. His name is Sammy The Bull Gravano.

“Sammy The Bull” turned State Witness against Godfather John Gotti and the New York Mafia – for a certain young New York Prosecutor called Rudi Giuliani (later Mayor and Trump Lawyer). “Sammy The Bull” was sentenced to only about 15 years for 19 murders – and today lives peacefully in USA.

Yankuba Touray should be equally smart and give the full story of the killing of Koro Ceesay and everything else that he knows. I have no doubt that if he cooperates and tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, he too could get a reduced sentence from a grateful Gambia. And to be sure, that is all the TRRC was asking him to do.
