Testifying in the case before the Brikama Magistrates’ Court presided over by Magistrate Ebou Sowe, the PW3 PC 4624 Sankung Marong in his narration said Abubacarr Jallow was reported to his office on 23rd June 2022 and the complainant, Ousainatou Sidibeh said the accused, Abubacarr Jallow sent her text messages on her replaced SIM Card in her new phone after her previous phone was stolen. She said the accused was requesting and threatening her to send D5000 to him and if she didn’t send it he (Abubacarr Jallow) will upload her nude pictures on social media.
