A Brufut resident Ousainou Bojang and his sister have been charged in connection with the deadly shooting of paramilitary officers at Sukuta/Jabang Traffic Lights on 12 September of this year.

When the case first came at the Banjul High Court on 12 October 2023, the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), AM Yusuf, sought an adjournment to prepare the bill of indictment, claiming that the prosecution was served with the investigation file the previous day.

The adjournment was not objected to by the defense, which asked the state to put their house in order on or before the 19 October 2023.

The case resumes on 24 Oct. at 12 noon for plea taking.
