Niansarang Jobe - Wounded During Deyda's Assassination

Dec 16, 2008, 5:39 AM

This day will remain the saddest day in my life; it is a wound in my heart that can never be cured. Witnessing Deyda's assassination by heartless human beings and also to be a victim of that inhuman act suffering from bullet wounds on my knee, which I am still curing, such a day has a great impact on my life. Deyda was a great man, who always fought for press freedom; he is a man who speaks for the voiceless people. He always shared what he had with the people.

I will never forget him and I will always pray for him. May his soul rest in peace. May Allah the almighty reward the good deeds he was doing for his family. I am also appealing to anyone who can help me to continue the treatment of the wounds that I sustained on my knee during that unfortunate day.
