‘Suspect in Brikama murder case among attackers on the station’

//‘Suspect in Brikama murder case among attackers on the station’

The police said the suspect Lamin Manneh is appearing before the court today or Monday.

A suspect in the murder case of Musa Colley, the young man who was found dead in Brikama last weekend, was among the people who vandalized the police station, police said on Friday.

After news broke out of Colley’s death, a mob in Brikama has attacked the police station, destroying the place and asking for the arrested to be handed to them.

At that time, the police have arrested three people: a driver and his apprentice and a girl friend of the deceased.

However, at a press in police headquarters, the police Inspector General Mamour Jobe said those initial suspects were later released after they were found to be innocent.

He said when their investigators found new lead exonerating the three suspects, they started looking into fresh lead which linked them to Lamin Manneh.

Manneh, Jobe said, was Colley’s friend who confessed to killing him when he was confronted with police findings.

“That is why we must respect the law. What would have happened if we have allowed the mob to kill the people we have initially arrested,” he said.

The police said Manneh claimed he was under the influence of alcohol when he killed Colley.

The police would not say if the motive of the attack on the station by Manneh and his men was to kill the initial suspects to send investigators to a wrong direction.

The police said the suspect Lamin Manneh is appearing before the court today or Monday.
