One Buba Keita was yesterday arraigned before Magistrate Pierrette Mendy of the Bundung Magistrates’ Court on a charge of stealing a ram belonging to one Saikou Suwareh.
Prosecutors accused Keita of stealing the ram on 11th September, 2016 at Nemakunku. The ram is said to be valued at D10, 000. He has vehemently denied the allegation leveled against him.
Police Sub-Inspector Lamin Y Jatta, who testified as a witness, told the court that on a morning in September, he was coming from morning prayers when he met with Keita with a ram. He said when he confronted and asked him about the ownership of the ram, Keita told him that the ram belongs to his uncle who asked him to take it to Badibou.
The witness said he was not convinced by Keita’s claim and he took him to the police station, where he said Keita confessed stealing the ram from his uncle.
