Musa Sonko, plaintiff, recently sued his relative, Ousman Sonko, for following his wife, at the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court presided over by Magistrate Ngube.

In an affidavit in support of a motion filed by the plaintiff, Musa Sonko, he stated that the defendant is his relative.

He revealed in the affidavit that the defendant used to follow his wife, and interfere in his marriage, and that he love his wife.

He indicated that the defendant even tried to run away with his wife, and that he did not know the whereabouts of his wife.

He further stated that he reported the matter to the police, but the police advised him to have a family meeting with their family elders so that the defendant would stop what he was doing.

The plaintiff stated that the defendant had threatened to kill him.

The defendant, Ousman Sonko, had admitted in court that he had left the wife of the plaintiff when she got married, and that he was no longer following her.

Magistrate Ngube subsequently told the court that the defendant was bound over to keep the peace and to be of good conduct towards the plaintiff and his wife, Suwadou Sanyang.

He added that the defendant should not have any carnal or love relationship with the said woman or conduct himself towards her in a manner intended to infuriate, anger, annoy, or cause jealousy to her husband for a period of one year.

“If this order is violated within the said period, the violation should be reported to the court to make any further consequential orders,” he declared.
