Yankuba Touray has been slapped with a charge of murder, sources at the Ministry of Justice have confirmed to The Fatu Network.
The former AFPRC top-shot was arrested last week following his controversial appearance before the TRRC.
On Monday, the former minister of local government and lands appeared before the high court, where there was no specific mention of the charge Touray would face but a ministry of justice official confirmed to The Fatu Network shortly after Touray’s court appearance a charge of murder is what has been pressed against him.
The Fatu Network could not immediately ascertain whose murder it is that Mr Touray has been charged on but a source said it is in connection with the brutal murder of former Gambian finance minister Ousman Koro Ceesay. He has been remanded at Mile 2 and will appear in court again on Monday, July 8.
