spokesperson of the Armed Forces Provisional Ruling Council (AFPRC), military
junta, Captain Ebou Jallow, has said that Yankuba Touray narrated to him it was
Alagie Kanyi who killed the former Finance minister, Ousman Koro Ceesay.
According to Captain Jallow, Alagie Kanyi hit Koro Ceesay with a pestle first
before “eventually slaughtering him like a sheep.”
Captain Jallow made this disclosure during an interview with Freedom Radio, an online radio based in the U.S., while giving an explanation about the circumstance in which Edward Singhateh, Peter Singhateh and Alagie Kanyi all participated in the killing of Koro Ceesay.
The former junta spokesperson emphasised that this was narrated to him by Yankuba Touray.
Jallow said that, Yankuba Touray told him that: “there was blood all over my compound, and boy Alagie is a very wicked man.”
He said that Mr. Touray told him that he didn’t know anything prior to the operation, saying he thought they were going to have a meeting his house.
The former junta spokesperson said that he advised Yankuba that if he had not known anything about it, then he must do something to prosecute Edward Singhateh.
“I told Yankuba that he must do something about it because this is a serious crime and that we can all be accountable for it as a Ruling Council,” Captain Jallow said. “We have to prosecute Edward Singhateh or find whatever Yahya Jammeh should do about the situation.”
“I said this to Yankuba Touray in front of Lamin Kaba Bajo.”
He went on to say that Yankuba later promised to do something about the issue.
Meanwhile, a senior official of ECOWAS, in Abuja, has confirmed to The Point that Edward Singateh, who was the vice chairman of ECOWAS, is not working with the regional block as his term has ended on 28 February 2018 and was replaced with a Sierra Leonian.
