Aminata Kamara, a resident of 10 Gassama Street, Calaba Town in eastern of Freetown who makes ends meet by selling vegetables at Guard Street Market on Tuesday, 21st September 2010 informed Freetown Magistrate Court No. 10 that she has been forced to run away from her estate due to unbearable treatments meted on her by her fianc, one Mohammed Bangura who is the defendant in this matter.

Testifying in tears before the presiding Justices of the Peace, Mr. Koker and Mrs. Esther Graham, the complainant narrated her ordeal which she says started in 2001 when she bought a piece of land at Calaba Town from one Mohamed Lamin Fofana at the cost of Le 850,000. She explained that she later developed the land by constructing a three-room and a parlor house which she has been using as her accommodation. She continued that stayed in her house for sometime when one day Mohamed Bangura appealed to her to allow him stay with her since he has been asked out of the house he was living that is owned by his elder brother. She said because the two of them have a boy child between them as lovers, she accepted to accommodate him.

After cohabiting together for some years the complainant divulged that sometime in 2006 the defendant asked her to rent one of the rooms to his friend Mr. Kallon to which she agreed. However the embittered estate owner testified that the defendant criminally prepared and issued receipts to the tenant without her consent as rightful owner.

On asking the defendant about the rational of him issuing and receiving rents from Mr. Kallon for her estate, Aminata Kamara narrated that the former grew furious which resulted her receiving merciless beatings. Since she can not endure the persistent beatings the complainant confessed there was no alternative but to abscond from her bona fide property in order to save her life.

The complainant was represented by lawyer M. Mansaray while the accused Mohamed Bangura was represented by Lawyer Kanneh.

Both representations asked for the matter to be adjourned to 28th September this year.
