(JollofNews) – A businesswoman arrested by Gambian security officers for allegedly taking part in an ‘unauthorised’ protest against the regime of President Yahya Jammeh has given a harrowing account of torture she and members of the opposition United Democratic Party (UDP) went through at National Intelligence Agency’s head office in Banjul.

Nogoi Njie was arrested on  April 14th at Westfield Junction  by security officials  together  with Ebrima Solo Sandeng and others who were demanding a reform to the country’s electoral system and the resignation of President Jammeh.

At the time of her arrest, she said she was waiting for a taxi to Banjul and was never part of the protesters.

In an affidavit supporting the writ of habeas corpus filed by Mr Sandeng’s lawyers on Tuesday, Njie gave an insight into the treatment of detainees by security officials.

Below, we reproduced the affidavit in full.

  1. It make me sick when I read the ordeal of Nogoi Njie who was wrongfully tortured for simply belonging to a different party. Gambia is full of Cassamance rebels and they will do anything to appease Yahya Jammeh. Yahya is a bastard who has degraded our women. She is a brave woman, am so proud of her. Gambians should rise up and defeat this rogue regime. Yaya has misused States Fund, sleeping with our sisters. Prostitutions is on the rise, drug abuse and drug trafficking is also on the rise. YayA Jammeh’s mother will one day be arrested strip naked and go through the same tortures and degredations our sisters and mothers has gone through. We are a nation of Muslims and Christians, one cannot believe this is taking place in Gambia. Yahya Jammeh’s mother, sister’s and wife should all be arrested, strip naked and beaten in front of everyone. What kind of a mother and a wife would watch and allow her son, husband degrade women to such a low level. Isatou Njie will die and go to hell, may your soul red in hell. You are all bastards. What kind of mother gave birth to people like you Isatou Njie? Put yourself in the same situations as theses women, you are woman and I bet you have sisters, daughters and cousins, how would you feel if they are stripped and beaten in front of all those men?. Am sick of you greedy fuckers
