(LEFT) The family of murdered Ghanaian migrant, Peter Mensah, at their home in Kumasi, Ghana. In 2005 Peter was one of over 50 Ghanaian and West African migrants attempting to travel to Europe by sea when their boats got lost and came ashore in the Gambia. Former president Jammeh, fearing that they were coup plotters, had them systematically killed by his hit squad, the ‘Junglers’. A group of Jammeh’s ‘Junglers’, went into exile with him in Equatorial Guinea in 2017, but as of January 2022, most of them have returned to the Gambia. They have now been arrested, due to being adversely mentioned in the recently released Truth Reconciliation and Reparations Commission report, and are now being held at Mile 2 prison, the very prison where they, under the Jammeh regime carried out tortures and killings. Peter's body has never been found, and until it is, under Ghanaian tradition a funeral cannot take place to give the family closure.
(RIGHT) A wanted poster with members of Jammeh's hit squad, the 'Junglers' and other military personnel. As of January 2022, a number of them have been arrested and face prosecution
