Over three hundred West African migrants were massacred on Friday, in Libya in cold blood by the terrorist group ISIS,The migrants were rounded up at a slum very close to the sea in Tripoli, where they were hosted by human traffickers destined to be trafficked to Italy. Armed ISIS terrorists raided the slum on Friday, New Year’s Day, and executed the migrants in grand style. Among the executed include: Gambians, Senegalese, Nigerians and other West African nationals.

Lamin Khan, a Gambian based in Germany, said he received a phone call from one of the escaped migrants, one Sarahule man, who goes with the first name Omaro. Mr. Khan said Omar explained to him, how the ISIS terrorists raided the slum and executed the migrants—numbering over three hundred of them. Omaro, he said, was able to secretly photograph the execution of the migrants by the ISIS terrorists. Khan also said the ISIS flag was displayed during the execution of the migrants.

“This is too stressful. They killed a lot of people, including Gambian migrants. The man speaking on the audio is Omaro. He is speaking in the Sarahule dialect,” Mr. Lamin Khan told the Freedom Newspaper.

“We are still trying to gather more information in regards to the ISIS execution of the migrants in Libya. I tried calling Omaro, but his cellular phone is off. Their phones are off at this hour. I will send you any information I receive from the survivors of the terrorist attack,” Mr. Khan said in a Viber message to this paper.

According to Mr. Khan, there is no exact figure about the number of Gambians killed during the ISIS New Year strike in Libya. He added that based on the information he gathered from one of the survivors Omaro, a good number of Gambian migrants were killed. Mr. Khan said Omaro’s brother is his roommate in Germany. He said he is devastated by the incident.

Over the years, thousands of Gambian youngsters—men and women, including members of the country’s security forces, have left the country in search of greener pastures in Europe, through the risky back way sojourn. The majority of those fleeing the country had to do with economic hardship, political persecution, and the never ending dictatorship under Yahya Jammeh’s watch.

The back way syndrome, has claimed many Gambian lives. Some of the migrants died in the Sahara desert, while others often die in sea. ISIS on Friday, raided the slum, where the migrants were awaiting to be trafficked to Europe and killed them in a mass execution mock.

The European Union has been working vigorously to clampdown on the illegal migration, but the problem still remains unresolved. Human traffickers are still using Libya as an outlet to traffic West African migrants. Libya has been rendered unstable since the fall of that country’s late Defacto dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

EDE N'ERHENA VBE EDO

"

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
