“Aside from two Ghanaian nationals who were discharged to a Ghanaian Government Delegation another Ghanaian got away from the authority of the Navy.

“The rest of the 55 workers were wrongfully executed on the requests of the “ruthless routine of Mr. Yayah Jameh, previous President of Gambia.

“In the examination led by our law office into the killings, it has been set up that the 9 Nigerians included were going with their travel papers. Be that as it may, the Nigerian Community in Senegal affirmed the character of one of the slaughtered Nigerian migrants. The subtleties are:-

“Name: Omozemoje Paul Enagameh
