One Yunusa Nying was recently convicted by the Brikama Magistrates' Court presided over by Magistrate John Njie for stealing a cow.

He was however sentenced by ordering him to pay the complainant of D10,000 by instalment of D1000 per month until the whole amount is paid up.

The fact of the case revealed that some two years back at the Brikama market the convict took the cow from the complainant on credit basis with the promise that upon slaughtering the cow and selling the meat he should reimburse the complainant the cost of the cow. But he failed to fulfil his promise.
