It could be recalled that Last Friday, I’d addressed a then developing story involving an Innocent young man, by the name ‘Alieu Kujabi’ and three Senegalese Soldiers (ECOMIG ) in Fajara. Though I was patiently waiting to see what the exact outcome will be hence the young Gambian they attacked was arrested, instead of his attackers or bullies.
After closely monitoring the entire episode from start to the ever end, I am now privileged to share with you (Our Global Audience) the full story here on Unifying Newspaper – ‘THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS’…Alieu Kujabi was out to chase his sheep’s back home but unfortunately for him, his sheep’s branched off into the Camp of the Senegalese-Ecomig-Forces, opposite the Fajara Barracks. When he approached the guards who saw his sheep’s entering their premises to seek for permission to enter their Camp and take his sheep’s home, he was denied access to the Camp and when he pleads with them to help and chase out his livestock’s so he can take them home, they flatly refused and became more and more aggressive towards him.
Three of the Senegalese Soldiers on duties at the gate repeatedly yelled at him and ordered him to vanish but he insisted on recovering his livestock’s before leaving, and rightly so. Upon realising that the brave young man wouldn’t take their NO for an answer, nor is he falling for their bullying tactics to scare him away, they decided to push their luck with him by physically launching at him with a clear intention of beating him up for refusing to leave as instructed.
However, knowing that he did nothing wrong to warrant such a negative reaction from (The Senegalese Soldiers) these Barbarians roaming our streets, he firmly stood his ground and patiently waited for the three Soldiers who were approaching him with rage, for NO reason at all.
The men (Three Soldiers) arrived and physically attacked him so instinctively reacted in self-defence and headbutted the first person to laid his filthy hands on him, causing grievously bodily harm to the officer in question. His headbutt landed right on the mouth and nose of the Senegalese Soldier and he started bleeding. Having the shock of their lives, they immediately halted and attended to their colleague and took him back to their Camp for medical attention.
The young man recovered his sheep’s and went home. But the very next day, the Senegalese Camp-Commander blatantly lied to our police and filed charges against this innocent young man. He was arrested and taken to Bakau police station. His statement was taken, processed and detained by the Gambian Police without any legal Justification in the first. But Gambians, you all won’t believe what then followed folks.
Ironically, as soon as the boy gave his side of his story in his police statement, even the station officer knew right away that he was on his right and if anything, the Senegalese Soldiers are in the wrong by law, but out of fear of saying or doing anything about it, he simply opted to completely vanish from sight. He was scared to grant bail to the boy in case it back fires on him hence it involves the so-called ECOMIG forces.
Shamelessly enough for these skinny and hungry looking men from Senegal, they stooped so low just to frame this young boy (Alieu Kujabi) by alleging they got a clear information that he is a well-trained soldier and that, he is a relative of our great visionary leader (President Jammeh) Babili-Mansa, which is far from the truth.
Suffice it to say, he is a brave young man but according to our investigations and findings, ‘Alieu Kujabi’ never joined the military. And when they were confronted with the irrefutable truth, they lie again, saying that, even if he was not enrolled in our Armed Forces, they got information that all the ‘Jollas, including all the relatives of President Jammeh’, are all well-trained Soldiers.
According to our impeccable sources at the Police station in Bakau, the Senegalese Camp-Commander, one ‘Major Camara’ and his men have proven to the entire world that, they are all pathological liars like ( Macky Sall) their Commander-In-Chief in Dakar. Can you all believe that they even went as far as trying to stitch-up this young boy by even claiming that he attacked (8) eight of his men, instead (3) three?That’s exactly what happened on Monday folks. They again shot themselves in the foot by contradicting themselves in their police statements – From initially reporting to the police that he attacked and fought with three of his soldiers, resulting in the injuries one of his men sustained, to attacking eight of his men.
But as soon as his lawyer arrived at the police station to enquire the reason why his client wasn’t granted bail since he was arrested and processed by the police? He was told that the Senegalese Commander is directly pursuing the case and he is now claiming that eight of his men were attacked by his client.He questioned the Commander as to whether it makes sense to him at all that a young boy like ‘Alieu Kujabi’ can attack eight of his armed men? He tried to insist on pressing ahead with their foolish threats based on nothing but lies and deception.
However, he soon realises that things wouldn’t go in their favour after being questioned as to why didn’t his men simply allowed the boy to go and get his sheep and what exactly was their intention for wanting to keep his livestock’s in the first place?
The lawyer also reminded the Senegalese Commander that, he and his men are in our motherland under the pretext of maintaining peace and security for all Citizens but their actions tantamounts to theft because they were insisting on keeping and taking something that doesn’t belong to them. He demanded his client to be granted bail by the police or vowed to do so at the high court forthwith because there is no legal justification for his prolonged detention.
He stressed and warned the Senegalese Commander that, he will go all out to ensure the ECOMIG forces will be reprimanded by the court or be ordered to leave the Gambia in its entirety because evidently, they are in breach of their international obligations (ECOWAS mandate) of protecting the livelihood’s of all citizens in our Sovereign-Independent Nation.
Suddenly, the Senegalese found themselves cornered and they quickly vanished from the police station and hours later, the police released the boy, confirming to his lawyer that, the Complaints have decided to drop all charges against his client.
EDITOR’S NOTE: This story is fascinating in so many ways but given the time constraints, we shall be revisiting this case again because it is one that deserves all our attention to the details and breaks things down to simplicity based on our own level of reasoning and understanding.
WE AT ‘UNIFYING NEWSPAPER’ WANT TO SEIZE THIS PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO THANK LAWYER MUSA BATCHILLY FOR COURAGEOUSLY TAKING THEM ON AND ENSURED THAT, ANOTHER GAMBIAN WILL NOT FALL VICTIM TO THESE BARBARIANS ROAMING OUR STREETS WITH A CLEAR INTENTION OF ABUSING OUR PEOPLE ON A DAILY BASIS.
NB: THE SAME SENEGALESE FORCES FIRED LIVE ROUNDS ON PEACEFUL PROTESTERS IN KANILIA, RESULTING TO THE HORRIFIC DEATH OF HARUNA JATTA AND SEVERAL OTHERS INJURED.
“REGARDLESS OF THE FACT THAT ADAMA BARROW AND HIS FAILED REGIME ARE STILL HELLBENT ON TRYING TO BURY THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND, THE ACTIONS OF THESE WICKED AND HEARTLESS CLOWNS WILL UNDOUBTEDLY HUNT THEM FOR THE REST OF THEIR PATHETIC LIVES, BY THE GRACE OF THE ALMIGHTY”.
May Allah SWT grant you his divine love and mercy – Your Killers and their accomplices will sooner or later be apprehended and be brought to book…In Shaa Allah.
GOOD SHALL ALWAYS AND FOREVER OVERCOME EVIL, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT MAY TAKE!!
