The Gambia Armed Forces on Tuesday confirmed that three detained soldiers are yet to be freed.

Malick Jatta, Omar Jallow and Amadou Badjie are set to regain their freedom following a decision by Justice Abubacarr Tambadou that the three soldiers be released. The killers have been in detention for two and a half years but rumours abounded Tuesday that they have been released.

The Gambian army’s spokesperson Major Lamin K Sanyang told The Fatu Network on Tuesday the men are yet to be released.

“They are still not released. This thing is a process and takes some time. They can only be released once everything is finalised,” Sanyang added.
