The remains of the late opposition activist Solo Sandeng is in Dakar for forensic identification, The Fatu Network has learnt.

“His body has been moved from the hospital” a source told this medium. The source added that it is for identification purposes as his case is already in court.

Solo Sandeng’s body was discovered by the Police in March after he died in custody during former President Yahya Jammeh’s rule.

Sandeng led a peaceful opposition march for electoral reforms on April 14, 2016, but died in detention due to torture shortly after his arrest by security agents.

His body was said to be found near the settlement of Tanji, approximately 33Km from the city of Banjul.

The police discovered the burial site based on information gathered from the detained NIA officials, who worked under the then dictator, Yahya Jammeh.

Meanwhile, the bodies of the exhumed December 30 freedom fighters are still at the hospital in Banjul.
