The theft case involving one Ebou Secka recently proceeded before Magistrate Edward Singhateh of the Bundung Magistrates’ Court.

The case proceeded with the testimony of the fourth prosecution witness (PW4), Lamin Jallow, a resident of Sinchu Alagie.

Jallow told the court that the accused, Ebou Secka, came into their compound at night pretending to be asking for one Omar Jallow, whom they did not even know.

“We told him that we did not know the person you are asking for, as there was no Omar Jallow here,” he said, adding that the accused left and later came late at night and jumped over the fence, as the gate was closed at the time.

PW4 further stated that while he was in his room, he saw the accused through the window, and the accused picked up a bag which they forgot outside containing some items.

He added that when they chased him to some extent he threw the bag and its contents, but was subsequently apprehended and was taken to the Wellingara Police Station, where he made a statement.

The case continues.
