An attempted robbery case involving one Mass Njie was on 3 September 2015, mentioned before Magistrate Kijera of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court.

Mass Njie was paraded before the court and charged on three counts of going armed in public, attempted robbery and threatening violence.

Prosecutors alleged that Mass Njie on 1 September 2015, at Kanifing South, in the Kanifing Municipality, was found armed with a cutlass at a public place without lawful occasion, causing threat to the public.

The indictment further indicated that on the same date and place, the accused, Mass Njie, threatened to injure one Elizabeth Daniels, a cashier at Panna Financial Bureau, with a cutlass.

It was also alleged by prosecutors that on the same date and place, he attempted to rob Elizabeth Deniels, a cashier at the Panna Financial Bureau, by using a cutlass.

But Mass Njie did not accept responsibility.

The prosecuting officer, Chief Inspector Fadera, then rose and told the court that he was opposing bail for the accused.

He applied to the court to remand the accused in prison, adding that granting the accused bail, he would pose a threat to the public.

Magistrate Kijera granted his application and remanded the accused.

The case continues.
