The land case involving Lady Njameh Jawara, Alhagie Wandifa Jawara and Abdou Magid, which was before the Banjul High Court, has finally been settled.

Both parties on Thursday informed the court presided over by Justice Haddy Roche that they had reached an out-of-court settlement and that both parties are satitisfied with the terms of the agreement.

It could be recalled that Lady Njameh Jawara and her co-defendants were dragged to court by one Lasana Sillah in connection to a land transaction between him and Lady Njameh Jawara. It turned out that the same land situated at Brikama Nema was again sold to the third defendant, Abdou Magid, by Lady Njameh Jawara.

The plaintiff, Lasana Sillah, was claiming the recovery of the sum of D320,000.00 being the money he paid to Lady Njameh Jawara as the cost of the said land.
