The University of The Gambia Students’ Union has said they will consider staging a protest in October against the killing of Kebba Secka.

Kebba, 25, was a business and public administration student of the UTG who died in July after a police constable plunged a knife into his belly following a scuffle.

The government condemned the murder with his killer currently on trial but the students’ union said it will stage a protest nevertheless, to ensure such police brutality never occurs again.

“When we received the information about the murder of Kebba Secka, we ensured that we exhausted all forms of protocol in making sure we address the issue accordingly,” Ebrima L Dampha, the president of the Union said at a presser Wednesday.

He said the protest is planned for October on the very first day that Secka’s killer is expected to appear in court.

“On that day, we will demand for justice and seek assurance that such act never happens again,” he said.
