Magistrate Marke Ngegba of the Pademba Road Court No. 1 will on Friday 18th November, 2022 deliver judgment on the matter between AIG Gabriel Tommy and the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC) Member of Parliament, Hon. Mohamed Bangura, and the APC Tonkolili District Chairperson Yabom Sesay.

This decision comes after Hon. Mohamed Bangura’s Defense Counsel, Lansana Dumbuya Esq. intimated to the court on Tuesday 8th November 2022 that his laptop where he did his written no-case submission has been stolen.

The learned lawyer, therefore, sought the Bench to give him a week’s adjournment to prepare his no-case submission.

On the other hand, the Defense Counsel of the second accused Yabom Sesay, Lawyer Brima Koroma, presented his written no-case submission.

In response to the written no-case submission for the second accused, State Prosecutor Yusif Isaac Sesay said he relied on the evidence adduced before the court.

Magistrate Ngegba did not grant the request made by Lawyer Dumbuya.

According to him, during the previous hearing, he had stressed to the defense team that he would not adjourn for submission of no case after yesterday’s hearing. The Magistrate, therefore, waved no case submission for the first accused Hon. Mohamed Bangura and adjourned the matter for a ruling.

Both APC stalwarts have been under trial for the offense of assault, insulting conduct, threatened language, riotous conduct, and obstruction, all contrary to law.
