People took to the streets on 24th July to vent their anger over the death of one Ousman Darboe, a Sierra Leonean national whose demise according to the protesters, was as a result of police brutality.

The defendants were on 3rd September remanded by the Magistrate’s Court in the wake of the prosecution’s application for the matter to be transferred to the High Court since the subordinate court lacks competent jurisdiction to hear some of the charges.
