The famous Gambian “semester boy” Lamin Kinteh, who accused the former commander of the anti-crime unit Gorgi Mboob of stealing his D14 million dalasis and was subsequently charged for obtaining one million and one hundred twenty thousand dalasis (D1,120,000.00 million) dalasis by false pretense, has absconded from the jurisdiction of The Gambia, Freedom Newspaper can authoritatively report. Mr. Kinteh jumped bail last week. He was said to have traveled through the Border post of Jiboro and then entered neighboring Senegal.

Kinteh has landed his two sureties in hot soup. The people who bailed Kinteh, Fatoumatta Jaiteh and Fatoumatta Jallow were subsequently arrested by the police this past Thursday. They were later granted bail and ordered to appear in court on March 29th to explain why Lamin Kinteh had jumped bail.

It would be recalled that Lamin Kinteh had earlier accused Gorgi Mboob and one local marabout Alieu Sillah of stealing D14 million dalasis from him. He alleged that Mboob conspired with the marabout to steal D14 million dalasis from him. He also claimed that he was hypnotized by marabout Sillah. That he was brainwashed by the marabout to handover his car and land papers to the marabout.

Marabout Sillah was cleared from the police investigations. No charges were filed against him. Police Commissioner Gorgi Mboob was transferred to the Farafenni police station.

The police later found out that Kinteh was lying. He was charged for stealing over one million dalasis from one Lamin Jabang.  Kinteh was supposed to buy a truck for Jabang, which he never did, even though Jabang had given him over one million dalasis.

As his criminal trial reached in its climax, Kinteh secretly fled The Gambia. He boarded a flight and traveled to Italy, sources said.

“The trial was not going in his favor. The police had solid adverse evidence on him. Upon suspecting that he was not going to get an acquittal verdict from the court, he decided to abscond,” said a source.

Meanwhile, the court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of fugitive Lamin Kinteh if seen within the jurisdiction of The Gambia. Kinteh’s sureties’ fate would be decided by the court on March 29th.
