A soldier implicated in several killings during Yaya Jammeh’s tenure is fighting court charges in the United States.
Believed to be a key member of Jammeh’s hit-squad, Michael Coorea debuted in court yesterday for the first time following his arrest last year.
His apprehension was initially for overstaying in Colorado after fleeing Gambia in 2016 when Jammeh lost the polls to property-seller Adama Barrow.
Current allegations hovering his head is linked to his alleged participation in the brutal torture of soldiers arrested for the 2006 failed coup plot staged by Ndure Cham.
A former army chief until his escape in 2006 after Lang Tombong Tamba leaked to Jammeh Ndure’s plans to leapfrog him from power, Cham, was later arrested in 2013 and got strangled to death by the jungulers – a feared group of the nations ex-leader.
Micheal Correa is also mired in the deaths of U.S citizens Ebou Jobe and Mamut Ceesay who were chopped to pieces and buried in Jammeh’s garden, according to self-confessed killer Omar Jallow, also member of the henchmen.
