Lamin J Darboe, the defense counsel for the first accused person, has also requested the court to issue an order to the two GSM operators to provide the call printout as part of the cross-examination on PW 3 (Mama Jabbie).

Following the police incident on September 12th, 2023, at the Sukuta-Jabang traffic light, and the President’s announcement of a one million Dalasis reward for capturing or reporting the suspect’s whereabouts, Mama Jabbie was identified as the person who captured Ousainou Bojang, the first accused person, in Jululung, southern Casamance region of Senegal.

Mama Jabbie informed the court that she was in a friend’s compound in Jululung on the Tuesday before Wednesday, September 13th, when Ousainou met her around 2 pm local time. PW 3 stated that she was not paid by anyone to capture Ousainou and had no prior knowledge of the President’s reward. She learned about the shooting on Wednesday when Ousainou Bojang arrived in Jululung.

When asked if her friend Yafatou gave a statement to the police, PW 3 mentioned that she couldn’t recall her friend providing any statement.
