The matter in which a catholic member of the Saint Anthony Church at Syke Street dragged a fellow catholic member to court over a seeming church infighting is expected to come up again this morning at a Freetown Magistrate Court No. 3 presiding by Magistrate Bankole Shyllon.

The court case commenced following a serious fracas between one Mrs. Grace Mary Bangura and Florence J. Amara at the church compound on Sunday 13th February 2011.

The two female Catholic Church goers reportedly fought over a man called Emmanuel Tofositi, a Ghanaian national working for the United Nations in Sierra Leone.

The complainant, Mrs. Grace Mary Bangura testified in court on Tuesday 29th March 2011 against the accused, Florence J. Amara.

Bangura told the court that she was having a chat with the Church Priest inside the church compound after service, when the accused person approached her and issued a loud warning that she (Grace) must stop dating her (accused) husband and concentrate on her (Grace) own marriage.

According to her, the accused was later prevailed upon by church members to leave the church compound.

She pretend to leave but later materialized from nowhere and hit me with her shoe on my forehead, She explained, adding that the act caused her a swollen forehead.

I then reported the matter to the police after fellow church members dispersed us, Mrs. Grace Bangura disclosed.

Following her testimony, lawyers representing the accused person, cross examined the complainant. The matter progresses today.
