One Pa Bubu Musa Njie recently continued his testimony in the trial involving one Ansu Jarju, who was accused of receiving stolen property, at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court before principal magistrate Isatou Janneh.
In his testimony, Njie told the court that the first time he saw the accused was at the Banjulinding Police Station.
He said the accused told him at the station that he would compensate him, the witness, with another bull, but he insisted that he only needed his bull which was missing.
According to him, a few days later, he received a telephone call from S.O. Lamin Touray, telling him to go to the Banjulinding Police Station, as the matter would be taken to court.
Under cross-examination by the accused, the witness told the court that the accused said at the police station that he bought the bull from the herdsman for D10,000.
He also told the court that he was not present during the time of selling his bull to the accused person.
He further told the court that three bulls were missing from his herd two years ago, and one was found in possession of the accused person, adding that he did not know the exact time when the said bull was missing.
He added that he employed Bamba as the herdsman, noting that his last conversation with the accused person was at the police satiation.
