By Sailu Bah The land dispute case between Balla Manneh, the Alkalo of Maka village, and Ebou Jobe, the defendant, proceeded at the Lower Nuimi District Tribunal in Essau on Thursday, 14 May, 2015. This was after the Chief of Lower Nuimi, who is also the Chairman of the District Tribunal, had assigned three of his court members to visit and survey the land in dispute in Maka village on Tuesday, 12 May 2015. Chief Sonko, the Tribunal Chair, asked the head of the delegation Kebba Demba, to tell them the result of the survey. Mr. Demba said they have done the survey and found out that the cashew trees that were cut were on the land given to Ebou Jobe by the court. He added that no cashew tree was found cut down in the Alkalo’s land. This report was also confirmed by Mustapha Ceesay, another member of the team that was tasked by the tribunal to survey the said land. Chief Sonko reminded that Mr. Jobe, the accused, during the first sitting, confirmed that he was the one who cut the 228 cashew trees that were planted by Mr. Manneh, the Alkalo. At this juncture, the 5 tribunal members, including the Chairman, had a side discussion for a minute. Later, the Tribunal Chairperson announced that the case is adjourned for judgment which is set for Thursday, 28 May 2015.  ]]>
