One Jerreh Kujabi was recently cross-examined in the conspiracy case involving him and Alimatou Colley, at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate P Sarre.
Under cross-examination, Jerreh Kujabi was asked by the prosecutor how long his daughter, Fatou Kujabi, was married to the complainant, Buchheister (alias Babucar Bojang) and Kujabi responded that he could not remember the year because it was a long time ago.
Told that he said the complainant was at one time staying with his daughter, and asked who finance the particular house they were living in, the accused said the house is his own house.
It was put it to him that the house was built by the complainant, but the accused said that the complainant never built a house in his compound. Further asked who is the owner of the compound that he and his wife were asked to vacate, the accused said it is Buchheister (alias Bubacarr Bojang) but it is jointly owned by his wife, Fatou Kujabi.
Further asked why he was still in the said compound of the complainant, Kujabi said he would leave the compound, but his things could be lost or spoilt, that was why he is still there.
The prosecutor put it to him that the said compound belongs to the complainant, and is not jointly owned with Fatou kujabi.
Mr Kujabi agreed that the compound belongs to the complainant, because his name is on the compound document.
He added that the agreement between his daughter and the complainant was for him to buy a compound for her, and later to get married.
The case was adjourned to 13 April 2015.
