Popular Human Rights Activist/Rapper Killa Ace Plus Six Others Remain in President Barrow’s Detention Camps as Gambia’s Supreme Court Discharges 30 Youths.

After weeks of trials at the Serekunda Migistrate court, the case was later referred to the Supreme Court last week for further hearing.

Today, Prosecutors at the Attorney General’s chambers have dropped charges against 30 of the 37 youths remanded at Mile 2 over July 24 protest in Serekunda, which was staged following the suspicious death of one Ousman Darboe, a market vendor at the Serekunda Central Market.

Darboe was arrested and detained by the police anti-crime unit and he died 3 days after he was released. His colleagues then blamed his death on police brutality.
Demanding answers from the police and justice over his death, several youths protested in Serrekunda. During the protest, the head of the anti crime unit Gorgi Mboob’s house was allegedly set on fire and the Bakoteh Police station allegedly got ransacked.
The youth were remanded at Mile 2 by the Kanifing Magistrate Court last week. However, the Attorney General Chambers today filed a Nolle Prosequi against all the defendants except 7.
Those who remain in custody are Omar Jobe, Muhammed Fadia, Lansana Tamba, Ali Cham (Killa Ace), Ebrima Camara, Yerro Saidy and Omar Darboe.
Meanwhile, the High Court will hear the bail application of the remaining 7 on Thursday at 12 noon.
