According to the charge sheet, the two alleged criminals were accused of receiving stolen goods and engaged in the act of forgery, contrary to the forgery act of 1913, of the laws of Sierra Leone.

Police alleged that the first accused, Kamara deceived a police officer, Foday Kabbah by presenting certain forged document relating to weapon and ammunition, like one riffle belonging to the Sierra Leone Police Force.

The first accused was said to have committed the offence of forgery at the Rogbaneh Police Station in Makeni in the Bombali district, in the northern part of Sierra Leone on 13 December 2016.

The particulars of the offence indicated that the second accused, Kabbia who was charged with the offence of receiving stolen goods was arrested with seventeen rounds ammunition, one riffle including combat trousers property of the government of Sierra Leone.

In his application for bail, counsel for the two alleged armed robbers, J M Jengo told the jam-packed court session that the accused were Sierra Leoneans residing within the jurisdiction of Sierra Leone.

He canvassed the presiding magistrate that his clients had two reliable and credible sureties that were ready and willing to enter into recognizance on their behalf.

Lawyer J M Jengo added that both accused had spent thirty nine days at the Criminal Investigation Department headquarter cell on Pademba road in Freetown, before the matter was eventually charged to court.

He assured the court that if granted bail, the accused would not jump bail or interfere with the prosecution witnesses, and they would always show up on every given adjournment date, and that he was making the application , consonance with Section (74) Sub Section (2) of the criminal procedure act (N0.32) of 1965.

On the contrary, the police prosecutor, Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP Samuel Kamara vehemently opposed to bail on behalf of the both accused, considering the nature of the offences, and the spate of arm robbery in Freetown and in various part of the country.

After listening and digesting the submissions of the defense and prosecution, the presiding magistrate, Albert Moody pronounced that both accused should be relocated to the Male Correctional Centre on Pademba road in Freetown Capital.

The matter was adjourned to 1 August, 2017.
