For causing grievous bodily harm to his son, one Musa Sanyang of Lamin village will now spend nine months in prison with hard labour.

Musa was given a nine-month custodial sentence after his own plea of guilty to a charge of assault. He had assaulted his own seven-year-old son by hitting him on the head with a stick for stealing mangoes.
