The legal adviser of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), now renamed State Intelligence Services (SIS), has filed a complaint against personnel of the agency for allegedly attempting to murder him according to report published by The Point Newspaper.
Lawyer Bubacarr A.M.O Badjie filed the complaints earlier this week at the police headquarters in Banjul but he was referred to Kairaba Police Station where an investigation panel has been working to unearth the substance in the complaints earlier filed against him by his boss, Ousman Sowe for allegedly directing the destruction of the torture chamber at the SIS, thereby tampering with evidence that could be useful in the prosecution of SIS officials.
The attempted murder complaint came as a result of the events that took place at Badjie’s house last week Friday, when operatives Pa Ebrima Faye, Director of Special Operations, Alagie Ceesay, Officer Commanding Special Operations, Ebou Sanynag and one Mr. Kanyi all of the same unit, plus Kalilou Jammeh of Counter Intelligence Unit and Director General Ousman Sowe attempted to arrest him.
“On Friday around 7 pm, a team of four operatives came to my house to arrest me again; I refused to come down, advising them to seriously consider the crime of killing Solo Sandeng that hangs over their heads. They responded that this happened while they were doing their job and I was about to witness my own if I come down from my house,” Badjie said.
The lawyer said he took these threats seriously considering the records of these operatives so he decided to file official complaints in the interest of justice and his own safety.
