Turay was arrested following an incident that occurred in 2021 at the New City Hall Administrative Building where he made inciteful comments geared towards disturbing the peace.

Turay had earlier denied the allegations when first  brought before the court.

However, the latest prosecution witness in the matter, Detective Inspector Mohamed Jusu displayed video footage in court where the accused was seen and heard making statements that could cause unrest.

In the said footage, the councillor said that they would use the radical approach to cause mayhem in Freetown without fear of reprisal from authorities.

The lawyer for the councillor, Lansana Dumbuya was against the presentation of the video, citing that it could have been shown to the defence team first.

However, the magistrate overruled that objection after the detective had clarified that he used certain software to ascertain the originality of the video.

The matter is adjourned till February 7th as the defence team gear to prove the innocence of Councillor Ice T.
