Mr. Ebou Jallow Would Need to Show Respect to the Soul of Koro Ceesay.
Written by Ebou Ngum in Columbus Ohio
Mr. Editor, I am reacting to your recently published article about the statement of Lead Counsel Faal infuriating Ebou Jallow. Of course, Ebou Jallow has every reason to continue to languish in his nightmare of giving conspiracy theories about the death of Koro Ceesay. Fair play to him but he should please respect the soul of Koro Ceesay.
Lead Counsel Faal was clear in his statement and as far as I can recall, he was calling for credible witnesses. Mr. Ebou Jallow to the prudent person lacks the credibility to give any sensible testimony on the death of Koro Ceesay. All we gather from him are conspiracy theories and hearsay. Ebou Jallow was not present when Koro Ceesay was murdered in the house of Yankuba Touray but he seems to be too informed about how everything was cooked and those that actually participated and those that played a bystander role. Yankuba Touray according to Ebou Jallow was just a bystander.
While I am not privy to his Facebook posting, one could categorically conclude that this Ebou Jallow is clearly showing disrespect and actually mocking the family of Koro Ceesay. According to his Facebook remark, Jallow was quoted “Hear him again. “TRRC who killed Koro Ceesay? How and why? We are waiting for you to “concoct” another story with your witnesses” #Gorrijiggens.” So clearly the death of Koro Ceesay meant nothing to this Ebou Jallow. Why does he think Lead Counsel Faal would concort stories with witnesses about the death of Koro Ceesay? So far of all the witnesses that testified before the TRRC on the death of Koro Ceesay, it was only Alagie Kanyi that gave a compelling testimony on how Koro Ceesay was killed in the house of Yankuba Touray.
The Gambia lost a great man and all we get from this Ebou Jallow of a person are unending stories about an alleged arms deal, the hatred of Edward Singhateh towards Koro Ceesay, the budget speech that never was, and the bystander role of Yankuba Touray in death of Koro etc. Mr. Ebou Jallow, the family of Koro Ceesay deserves some respect. The TRRC is not making up witness to come and say stories and how does calling credible witnesses to come to testify about the death of Koro Ceesay makes anyone a “Gorrijiggen”?. This man is clearly making the death of Koro Ceesay into a circus show because if he has any common sense and he would not have the audacity to make such irrational statements on Facebook.
The least one could expect from any right thinking person is to show some sympathy to the soul of Koro Ceesay. In any case, what can we expect from a Facebook resource person like Ebou Jallow on the death of Koro Ceesay? Only utter nonsense, lack of respect and outright disregard to the soul of the dead man.
