Gambia’s right violation investigating body, The TRRC, is seeking to unearth greater depth into events leading to the death of 56 Ghanaians.
Up to the aforesaid amount of West Africans were murdered purportedly on the orders of erstwhile head of state Yaya Jammeh by his hit-men.
Perpetrators of the crime have come out confessing in serialised hearings over TV of the gross manner the West Africans were killed which included firing by gun at close range.
Hearings into how they were executed rendered majority of the population shocked prompting release of a statement by the government in Ghana urging for investigations.
However, the TRRC is out looking to get more insight and its chairman Lamin Sise, has urged for all those in the know of what happened to step forward.
“The Commission will find it immensely helpful to receive more information on the remaining themes in its work plan, including the enforced disappearances of people like Chief Ebrima Manneh, Saul Ndow, and Mahawa Cham among others. Also information regarding the massacre of an estimated 56 West African migrants in 2005. We therefore continue to urge all persons – especially victims of any human rights violations that occurred between July 1994 and January 2017 – to please come forward and share their information or experiences with the Commission,” part of the release read.
