He served the secret society for over 36 years after his death on 12th December, 2014, members of his secret society chose heir to his position who was Abdulrahman.
Abdulrahman was needed to take over from where his father stopped before his death. As a religious man, Abdulrahman denied the proposal completely.
Upon denouncing, the position, the secret society as it is a compulsory rule within them for decades (tradition), decided to hunt him and his family down in the country.
Abdulrahman’s life, upon his refusal to take the position, was at stake and some family members were killed and his entire family was banned not to farm or do any business transaction with any one again in the district and country as a whole.
In spite of the suffering and punishment Abdulrahman Turay and family faced, those who were fortunate not to be killed, flew out of the country to Guinea and some other parts of the world.
According an eyewitness, Abdulrahman was in Guinea where he also faced several problems and some of these problems were believed have been orchestrated by members of the secret societies.
The issue of people being killed and hunted as a result of them refusing to join secret societies has become one big problem in the country to an extent that trying not to be a member would either be forced to be a member or being killed.
In such instances, leaving the country for another country will be the only advisable decision.
