Giving his testimony, the PW2, NCO3 Lamin Sanneh told the court that the accused, Abdou Ceesay, the weighing Officer, and Lamin Sanneh who is PW2 in this case all signed the weighing Certificate of the suspected cannabis.

The accused, Abdou Ceesay acknowledged the information on the weighing Certificate but he denied the description of the bags of the suspected cannabis. He went on to accuse PW2 NCO3 Lamin Sanneh of taking D11,000.00 from his mother before releasing his vehicle that was caught with the suspected drug. “I did not take the alleged money and the said vehicle was entrusted to your mother,” PW2, NCO3 Lamin Sanneh said.
