The third prosecution witness (PW3), Modou Lamin M. Camara, recently testified in the trial involving one Edrissa Jallow, accused of threatening violence and prohibition of conduct, before Magistrate Wilson of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court.

Camara said he lives at Manjai, works as security consultant and also the managing director of Marshal Security.

He recognised the accused and recalled that between 21 and 22 September 2015, he received a telephone call from a prominent client, J. Enterprise; that the accused who was at the time deployed to safeguard the said place turned out to be very violent.

He said he then deployed the area supervisor, Musa Jallow, to solve the issue, who later reported to him that the accused still maintained his arrogance.

Mr Camara further said the client again called him, adding that he went to the client and found the accused insulting his client.

He added that when he approached the accused, he undressed and threw his uniform on the ground, saying: “I do not care your fucking job”.

He collected the uniform and went back to his office.

Camara further testified that dozens of people came to the scene and it was embarrassing at Jimpex Junction, adding that the accused wanted to be paid at that moment.

He said the accused was later invited to the office.

On 22 September 2015, the accused went to the office around 3 pm in an arrogant manner; saying: “My money; if I’m not paid I will either be killed or I kill.”

He said the accused was then surrounded by managers and he (the witness) told one of them to go and report the matter to the Kairaba Police Station.

The accused was then arrested, and taken to the said police station, where his statement was obtained.

The case was adjourned till 19 January 2016.
