Banjul, Gambia: -Former members of a Gambian death squad known as the Junglers on Thursday accused ex-president Yahya Jammeh of ordering the murder of two US citizens in 2013, having already confessed to the killing of a well known journalist.

Since Monday, Gambians have been gripped by live coverage of three ex-Junglers — Malick Jatta, Omar Jallow and Amadou Badjie — before the West African country´s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

On the last day of hearings before the commission adjourns until August 5, Badjie, a member of Jammeh´s elite hit squad, said the head of state had ordered in June 2013 that two US-Gambian businenessmen, Alhaji Ceesay and Ebrima Jobe, who he suspected were planning a coup, should be “chopped into pieces”.

The two men were arrested and taken to the president´s residence in the village of Kanilai, Badjie said._
