According to the indictment, on 5 December, 2021 the trio conspired amongst themselves to kill one Alieu Badara Bah with a gun.

During the hearing, prosecuting officer Sub Inspector Ebou Ceesay applied for the matter to be transferred to the Special Criminal Division of the High Court as the magistrate’s court lacks the jurisdiction to hear the case and also because the  penalty attached to the offense is death.

Accordingly, Magistrate Jabang transferred the case to the Special Criminal Division of the High Court and ordered that the accused persons be remanded at Jangjangbureh prisons, pending their reappearance at the High Court
