The decision came this Thursday, June 17, 2021. Captain Oumar Touré, famous for having been at the heart of the investigation in the case between the deputy Ousmane Sonko and masseuse Adji Sarr, was deposed by the President of the Republic Macky Sall.After having served his sentence of 60 days at the Legion of the Gendarmerie d’intervention (LGI) of Mbao, the assistant to the commander of the Section of Research, is now disbarred from the executives of the National Gendarmerie.
The Head of State of Senegal, Macky Sall, signed this Thursday, June 17, 2021 in Matam the decree to remove Captain Oumar Touré from the Research Section. The judicial police officer, sanctioned for insubordination and disclosure of the secrecy of the investigation in the case of Ousmane Sonko/Adji Sarr, is no longer part of the Gendarmerie executives, he “is paid into the reserves as a soldier.” , the order in council states.
An investigator in the case of the complaint lodged by the masseuse of Sweet Beauté, Adji Sarr, who accused the opponent Ousmane Sonko of repeated rapes and death threats, Captain Touré had submitted his resignation on 8 March 2021, day Ousmane Sonko was indicted and placed under judicial supervision.For good reason, the Judicial Police Officer (OPJ) said he feared for his safety and that of his family. In his statement published on the whatsapp group of his classmates and then taken up in all social networks, he claimed to be subject to increased surveillance by men whose identity he did not know. Even his calls, he said, were bugged. Since the leak of the minutes concerning this investigation I have been followed by individuals whose real motivation I do not know until I was informed that they were elements of the National Directorate of Senegalese Intelligence. On a private matter, I was rather surprised by this measure,’ the captain said to justify his withdrawal from the file.
Recall that Captain Touré is accused of being in the pay of the opponent, Ousmane Sonko.Accusation that he totally denied arguing that he met the leader of Pastef only on the day of the delivery of his first summons. His resignation from the SR had surprised even his colleagues who presented him as a serious, hard-working and very discreet man.
