In a press statement issued yesterday, the regional director of ARTICLE 19 West Africa, Fatou Jagne Senghor said: “We are disturbed by the disappearance of Alagie Abdoulie Ceesay, who has now been missing for ten days without any contact with his family or colleagues.”
From other local sources close to the family, and relatives who spoke to ARTICLE 19, Ceesay is believed to be in NIA custody; there are fears for his safety.
“Ceesay’ disappearance came at a time when the case of Ebrima Manneh, another journalist who disappeared nine years ago is still not elucidated. We call on the authorities to provide information about his whereabouts and ensure his safety and security” Jagne added.
