I will be killed or I will kill –Gambian Torture Enforcer Found in Scotland

A Gambian warlord’s enforcer accused of a catalogue of torture is living freely in Scotland.

Speaking at his flat in the east end of Glasgow, Morr said: “It’s not safe for me to go home. I will be killed or I will kill somebody.”

Human rights groups and ­politicians have demanded urgent action after the Sunday Mail traced former intelligence agency operative Alagie Morr to a flat in Glasgow.

Also known as Edrissa Jobe, he was a senior figure in the ­government of brutal Gambian president Yahya Jammeh, whose 22-year reign was characterised by extreme violence, arbitrary arrests, political ­disappearances and murder.

Government investigations have linked Morr to the beatings, sexual assaults and electrocution of detainees under his control.

Calls are now being made to make him face justice which could involve a return to Gambia, now a democratic republic.

Morr has been living in Scotland for several years in the Barlanark area of Glasgow while an asylum application is considered.

He was charged under the Abusive ­Behaviour and Sexual Harm Act in ­connection with an incident in which he was accused of pursuing his partner or ex-partner into a lane close to his home and kicking her in March last year.

The charges were later deserted by the Procurator Fiscal and no further action was taken.

Police Scotland and the Crown Office are understood to be ­considering information about Morr’s alleged crimes in Gambia to decide whether to take action here which could invole an extradition.

Gambia’s Truth Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) named Morr was a high-ranking agent in the president’s National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and Drug Law Enforcement Agency (DLEAG).

Morr said his children are elsewhere and wife died four years ago.

He added: “I don’t know where my wife is buried or why she died. I will not live with my family feeling threatened as I was doing the right thing.

“As long as the government ­officials and cartel are conspiring, my life is not safe.

“Why are they after only me? There were 70 names but people who are still in my country have not been arrested.”

Morr lives in a flat filled with gym equipment. Neighbours had no idea who he was, with one saying they thought he was a night worker.
