President Yahya Jammeh has lashed out at the UN and Amnesty International for requesting an independent investigation into Sandeng’s death.
Jammeh, 50, who is seeking a fifth mandate in December says death in custody is not unusual, refusing to heed to calls by the UN and Amnesty international to investigate reported deaths of three protesters, one of which is confirmed to be Mr Sandeng.
“I do not see the point. People die in custody or during interrogations. It is really common,” Jammeh said.
