Police have launched an investigation into the “unexplained” death of two missing kids after their bodies were found in a derelict car at a deserted auto mechanic garage in Banjul. 

The bodies of Fatou Camara, 5, and Omar Konteh,6, who were declared missing 11 days ago were found yesterday after a frantic search by the police. 

Fatou was found lying naked on the car seat while Omar was under the car seat. 

Police spokesman ASP Lamin Njie told Gambiana that “The Police forensic experts have examined the scene and investigations are ongoing into the matter.”

He urged people with information to contact the police. 

Meanwhile the bodies have been moved to the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital for a postmortem examination. 

But Abdou Konteh, father to Omar Konteh one of the missing kids, said: “I feel that they were killed and put in the car that’s my feeling because if someone dies for 3 days should explode but these small kids died for 10 days and they didn’t explode that cannot be.

“Even in the water you would explode and in the grave and even on top of the soil that’s what God says and the kids less than 7 years died for 10 days and could not explode that cannot be,” he said.

Mr Konteh said there was no sign of attempt by the kids on the mirrors of the car of escaping saying “no mark was found done by the kids because Omar was put under the sit and Fatou was left lying naked on the seat.”
