Captain Malick Boye, one of those of alleged former President Yahya Jammeh’s hit squad, the Junglers, has been arrested.
Boye has been accused of among other things killing a female soldier allegedly impregnated by former President Yahya Jammeh and he is currently held in custody.
The suspect, who was arrested on Friday, will be investigated for the many allegations of murder and torture carried out by Jammeh’s junglers. Among the questions Boye will likely face is an allegation that he had killed one Mariama Camara and her husband at Hamza barracks, when Mariama’s husband started “making noise”, about her pregnancy which Jammeh reportedly wanted her to keep in secret.
When contacted, the spokesperson of the Gambia Armed Forces, Major Lamin Sanyang confirmed the story.
