A Fajara golf course resident, Alex Manneh, was yesterday arraigned before Fredrick Foster of the Bundung Magistrates’ Court, charged with the offence of common assault.

According to the charge sheet, on 28 September 2011, at the Bundung Police Station, the accused Alex Manneh, assaulted one Momodou Bah, by hitting him on his head with a blow.

He denied the charge and was granted court bail of D2,000 with a surety within reachable address who should deposit a valid national ID card with the court.

However, the accused, Alex Manneh, told the court he could not secure a surety despite being a Gambian, as he did not have any friend.

The case continues on 20 October 2011, for hearing.
