Justice Ebrima Jaiteh last week ordered for one Assan Badjie be released on bail in the sum of one million dalasi with a Gambian surety, who shall deposit a property valued not less than one million dalasi.

Badjie’s bail came after his lawyer Lamin Mboge sought for bail at the High Court following his denial of bail by another high court judge. The ruling was held in his chambers.

The accused Assan Badjie is on trial for allegedly being in possession of 21kg of cannabis. He was arrested last November at Omorto village in the West Coast Region and later arraigned at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court.
