(JollofNews) – The Gambian community in the United Kingdom will Saturday hold the funeral prayers of four Gambian men and a Senegalese national who were killed on 7th July after a huge concrete wall collapsed on top of them at a Birmingham recycling plant.

The 15ft tall wall, made of heavy concrete blocks, came crashing down on Saibou Sillah, 42, a married father of seven children, including two-year-old twins, from Edgbaston, Almamo Jammeh, 42 and Bangaly Tunkara (Dukureh), and Ousman Jabbie, from Aston, and Mohammed Jagana, a married father-of-one from Winson Green, Birmingham, as they laboured at the Shredmet site in Aston Church Road, Nechells.

Their bodies were recovered the following day and taken to a mortuary in Coventry for  forensic post-mortem examination.

Funeral prayers (salatul janazah) of the men would be held at 5PM at the Summerfield Park, Dudley Road, Birmingham before their remains are flown back to their families in Gambia and Senegal for burial.
