By Suwaibou Touray Imam Lasana Fatty from Kerewan Dumbo Koto in the Lower Fulladu District of the Central River Region South is reported to be under detention since Saturday July 5th 2014. According to family sources there is a dispute which needs to be settled regarding the existence of two mosques and two Imams in the village.
