The particulars of offence state that the defendants on 2nd October 2008 at Pentagon Lumley incited others unknown to commit a felony.
No plea was taken but Lawyer S. M. Sesay, in his defense, submitted that the 1st accused did not participate in the crime, noting that it was a case of mistaken identity.
Bail was however granted in the sum of two million Leones and the matter was adjourned to October 27, 2008.
In another development, Ibrahim Kamara assaulted Rosaline Bendu at 0900 Farm on Tuesday 26 August 2008. He pleaded not guilty.
The complainant told the court that the accused and his parent including the community elders begged her to withdraw the matter from court so it could be settled at community level.
Magistrate Shyllon discharged the matter after the complainant stated that she has accepted the request of the community.
