Police have discovered the corpse of one Mohamed Jalloh in a place called Four Mile in the Western Rural District of Newton.
The suspected murder has been linked to club rivalry, with accusing fingers pointing on a club called Money Clash
Crime Officer of the Waterloo Police Station, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Daniel Conteh, told the Awareness Times that the incident took place in the evening hours of Saturday 16th January 2010.
According to him, the corpse was discovered shortly after a meeting of members of the accused Money Clash club.
“The aftermath of the said meeting was a serious commotion that emanated between the club members and a taxi driver, as a result of the refusal of the latter to take the club members to their various destinations,” the Crime Officer intimated.
ASP Conteh went on that police investigations have unearthed that the deceased was stabbed by a Clash Money member called Gibrilla Fornah, when he intervened to restore calm.
Eyewitnesses told the Awareness Times that the deceased was coming from another club meeting when he came across the deadly scene.
Meanwhile, the police have arrested and detained the prime suspect, Gibrilla Fornah and nine others, whilst the remains await post mortem at the Mortuary of the Connaught Hospital.
