The fourth prosecution witness (PW4), Ebrima Sanyang, a taxi driver, was recently cross-examined in the Brusubi murder case involving one Awa Sanyang at the Special Criminal Court in Banjul before Justice Emmanuel Nkea.

The taxi driver, under cross-examination, alleged that the accused person, Awa Sanyang, had called him on his phone, informing him that there was a visitor in their house, who was fighting with the deceased.

He told the court under cross-examination that he was a taxi driver and by virtue of his work, he did not have a fixed closing time, adding that if he had free time, he would go to the deceased compound and chat with them for some time.

The witness also told the court that he did not have a fixed residence, because sometimes he would be in Brusubi at his brother’s house, and sometimes at Bakoteh at their family compound.

He added that three of them took the remains of the deceased to the Brusubi Police Station, but then the accused was not there, adding that at that point, he did not know what caused the death of the deceased.

When I walked in, I saw the deceased lying on the floor with her face burnt and bleeding from the head,” he stated.

The case continues.
