A man recently accused of stealing two babies and was subjected to mob justice beating together with his co accused person, was never involved in any baby stealing, families members told Freedom Radio Gambia. Modou Gaye, the son of Ms. Jarrai Ndow, according to his family, was allegedly taken into custody by the police for stealing someone’s sheep, but was falsely accused by a mob and nearly beaten to death. The taxi that Gaye and his co accused person hired was also smashed into pieces by his captives.

A family member, who contacted this medium said Gaye’s case is with the New Yundum police station. He said they learnt about Gaye’s apprehension and beaten through our Facebook page. The taxi driver travelling with Gaye, was also tortured.

” Modou Gaye is the son of Jarrai Ndow. He was never involved in any baby stealing. He was falsely accused of stealing two babies. That is a lie. He has been processed by the police for allegedly stealing a sheep,” he said.

Jarrai Ndow is a supporter of the opposition Gambia Democratic Congress Party (GDP). A GDC official, who watched the torture video said, the tortured chap is the son of one of their party supporters in the person of Jarrai Ndow.
