One Ousman Bojang was on Tuesday brought before Magistrate B. Mahoney to answer to a charge of assault causing bodily harm at the Kanifing Magistrates' Court.

The alleged offence revealed that the accused Ousman Bojang on  27th April 2009 at Latrikunda German in the KanifingMunicipality, assaulted one Malick Njie by stabbing him three times repeatedly thereby causing him actual bodily harm.

The prosecutor, Daddy Jobe, rose and objected for the accused to be granted bail on the ground that the victim is suffering from serious injuries on his body, adding that he is discharged from hospital but the medical certificate was not yet released.

The accused was granted  bail, in the sum of D100, 000 with two Gambian sureties with ID card and reachable address.

Hearing continues on 27th May 2009.
