Count two stated that on the same month, year and at the same place, he entered into the compound of one Chemako Ndure, with intent to intimidate, insult and annoy him, thereby committed an offence.

The prosecutor applied that the accused person’s bail be revoked on the grounds that the accused was not a first-time offender, because he was convicted shortly before Koriteh feast by the Bundung Magistrate Court, and was given a suspended sentence.

He said after one week he committed another offence.
