Below are four articles published on the Ebrima Sanneh incident which began in the early hours of Friday 24th July 2020. The first article focuses on the allegations of Human Rights violations by Ebrima Sanneh who allegeded that Anti Crime Unit Commissioner Gorgi Mboob tortured him in the genitals.
The second story provided ACU Commissioner Gorgi Mboob with an opportunity to respond to allegations that he attacked Ebrima Sanneh in his genitals, allegedly hitting him a hoe. Commissioner Mboob vehemently denies that he tortured Ebrima, however, he did not deny forcing detainees under his custody to do hard labour in the ACU’s Bijilo Headquarters. A statement from the NHRC denouncing Police Brutality was also issued.
Eventually, Ebrima Sanneh was compelled to write a statement thanking Gambians for the support he had received and most importantly calling on the Police to retract their statement denying he was torture by Commissioner Gorgi Mboob.
An in-depth report was published featuring the Inspector General of Police, Ebrima Sanneh and Gorgi Mboob. The article discusses Ebrima Sanneh’s medical report which was seized by the Police who took possession of his personal document without his permission.
