HUNDREDS of people have been kidnapped in Gambian witch hunts and taken to detention centres where they were forced to drink hallucinogenic concotions, Amnesty International said.

Eye-witneses and victims told the rights group that those involved in rounding up victims were “accompanied by police army and national intelligence agents.

“They are also accompanied by green boys – Gambian President Yahya Jammehs personal protection guard.

The group said up to 1000 people had been kidnapped and that the hallucinogenic drinks had caused many to suffer serious kidney problems.
