Three victims of a fake Aids cure created by The Gambia’s ex-President Yahya Jammeh have sued him for financial damages.

It is the first case filed against Mr Jammeh in The Gambia’s courts since he fled into exile last year, ending his 22-year-rule in the tiny West African state.

Ousman Sowe, Lamin Ceesay and Fatou Jatta say they were among the first Gambians who were forced to give up anti-retroviral drugs, and drink home-made potions that made them vomit.

Ms Jatta was quoted by The Gambia’s Freedom newspaper as saying:

My experience in the presidential treatment programme was a horror. I could have lost my life.”
