The civil suit case filed by Musa Colley against one Mariama Ceesay continued recently before Principal Magistrate Ibrahim Kijera of the Bundung Magistrates’ Court.

In his testimony, the plaintiff, Musa Colley, told the court he paid an amount of D80,000 for a plot of land from the defendant, Mariama Ceesay, but the agreed price for the said plot of land was D140,000.

He said he only paid D80,000, but after paying this said sum, he never had possession of the land, adding that the said land was situated at New Yundum.

The land was still there but he knew nothing about It, he said.

“I then instructed my counsel to write to Mariama Ceesay regarding the said land and if I see the letter written by my counsel on my behalf I will recognize it,” Mr Colley added.

He identified the said letter and his defence counsel applied for the letter to be admitted in evidence as exhibit, and it was admitted in evidence as exhibit.

Mr Colley said further that after paying the D80,000 to the defendant, an agreement was prepared by the defendant, adding that he later informed his counsel that the defendant had sold the land to another person.

The defence counsel further applied for the agreement to be tendered in evidence as exhibit, and it was admitted in evidence as exhibit.

The case continues.
