As dictator Yahya Jammeh’s government is about to be declared history, more and more close Jammeh aides, including some personnel of his assassin team are on the run, Freedom Radio Gambia can reveal. The army command in Banjul is reporting that the following soldiers have embarked on an AWOL— (absent from work without leave).
- Dawda Mbye of the State Guard
- Jungullar Sheriff Sanyang
- Papa Sey Jatta, soldier, a close aide of dictator Jammeh
- Cherno Bah, soldier
- Alasan Bojang, soldier
- Sulayman Jarju, soldier
It’s imperative to note that the aforementioned soldiers used to be Jammeh’s most trusted security aides. They were aided by General Saul Badjie, Yankuba Badjie, and CDS Ousman Badjie to escape. This followed, an order issued by Jammeh for the above mentioned soldiers to be arrested. The persons listed in this report were alerted by the Badjies to escape from arrest.
Lt. Dawda Mbye, works with the plain clothe division of the State Guard. He receives joint military training in Mauritania and locally. He was the first to get out of the country. He was alerted by Gen. Badjie and co to leave or risked being arrested. Mbye left the State House and picked up his belongings at the Fajara barracks before leaving the country. He passes through a checkpoint around Darsilami, where he spent some time with the guards posted there.
Solider Papa Sey Jatta, was playing “draft” at the State House, when he received a phone call from Gen. Badjie’s team that he should leave the country as soon as possible. Papa, then suddenly left the palace. He used to be Jammeh’s close buddy.
The remaining soldiers were also aided to leave the country. Something is going on within the State House. Gen. Badjie wants to be the nice guy among the command and yet he occasionally teamed up with Jammeh to sacrifice his boys. Saul Sambou’s arrest was a ploy to distract the command from the recent mass exodus of soldiers from the military.
The NIA is reporting that the absconded soldiers have been wanted in connection with the APRC bureau arson attack and the other spate of firebombings of Jammeh’s assets in the country. The same NIA, headed by Yankuba Badjie, conspired with General Badjie and CDS Badjie to aid the soldiers to escape. The three Badjies have promised the fugitive soldiers that they will soon return to the country, even though one of their colleague Saul Sambou is still under custody at the Fajara barracks. Saul Sambou, has been speaking to Gen. Badjie and co privately. What’s going on Gambia??? Time will tell.
