Four accused persons Ibrahim Kalokoh alias Kartel; Festus Mansaray alias Bigman; Ahaji Stevens Bangura alias Stigma and Alhaji Umaru Jalloh alias Maju have been relocated at the Male Correctional Centre in Freetown by Hon. Justice Manuella Harding of the High Court of Sierra Leone for the offence of Murder, contrary to law.
The state alleged that the four accused persons murdered Sierra Leone’s first-ever Lieutenant-General Samuel Omar Williams at his Devil Hole residence along the Freetown-Waterloo Highway in the outskirt of Freetown on 27 December 2016.
The charge sheet indicated that one of the accused persons brutally murdered the retired Lieutenant-General Samuel Omar Williams with a shot gun and carted away household properties valued at fifty six million Leones (Le56M).
When the matter came up for hearing on Thursday 2 August 2018, the court could not proceed with the trial, due to the non-appearance of the Defense Counsel for the accused persons, C. Tucker from the Legal Aid Board. Hearing continues on Monday, 13th August, 2018.
