Singhatey has told the TRRC that they were very closed-friends before the 22nd July 1994 coup. He described Sabally as a very nice man. 

Sanna Sabally told the TRRC that he was arrested by Singhatey and detained in the cells at Mile II, adding that he was tortured severely by soldiers and other agents of the NIA. Sadibou Hydara, also a member of the AFPRC died under the custody of the State.

Singhatey has admitted that he arrested Sabally, but denied escorting him to Mile II. Singhatey said Yahya Jammeh feared Sanna Sabally and therefore accused him of plotting a coup to unseat him.
