By Kebba Jeffang

Mr. Lamin Jarju, the Alkalo of Babylon settlement in the Kombo North district of West Coast Region, has been arrested and Lamin Jarjuremanded at the state central prison Mile 2 for a fortnight.

A source told Foroyaa that Mr. Jarju was arrested since on the 27th August, 2015 after being charged with a single count of ‘Disobedience to Lawful Order.’ He denied the allegation against him.

Mr. Jarju was denied a court bail and was subsequently remanded.

It could be recalled that Mr. Jarju was among the 13 inhabitants of Babylon settlement who were charged with multiple counts, including ‘arson’, and in which he and two others were eventually convicted by the lower court in Brikama. He was later released after paying the fine but had spent at least 3 months in jail on other counts.
