GIRL, 18, CHARGED WITH MURDERING BOYFRIEND

Mariama Conteh alias ‘Kuku’ from the Bakau quarter of ‘Farokono’, is accused of stabbing to death Tijan Bah, 23, who fathered her child. According to the police charge, Mariama fought with Tijan around 2am and in the process stabbed him with a knife on the left side of his neck resulting to his death.

However, Mariama could not take her plea since the lower court is ruled to lack jurisdiction to hear murder cases. Police prosecution Fatou Jallow applied for the case to be transferred to the high court.

The magistrate, Nyima Samateh, granted the application and transferred the case to the high court. Meanwhile, the accused is remanded in custody pending her appearance before the high court.
