Lamin Jagne, a Senegalese national was recently convicted and sentenced to a fine of D400, in default to serve three months in prison by the Brikama Magistrates' Court for being in possession of life round ammunitions.

The court further ordered the convict to be deported to his native country upon completion of his sentence, and also ordered the ammunition to be forfeited to the state.

Narrating the facts before Magistrate Emmanuel Amadi, the police prosecutor, Sgt1260 Colley, said it happened on 21st December 2009, in Brikama, when the convict was seen by one Ousman Drammeh with three life rounds of ammunition, who later reported him to the police.

He further narrated that the convict was subsequently arrested and when asked about the ammunition he could not give any satisfactory explanation.

Consequently, he said the convict was cautioned and charged with the offence committed.
