In Freetown, a High Court presided over by Justice Komba Kamanda refused Mohamed Rapel Sannoh bail and remanded him at the Male Correctional Center on Pademba Road.

Prosecution witness had told the court that when 11 years old Mary (not her real name) was called by the accused to his house, little did she know what was in store for her. 
“Being a regular visitor to the house, she used to come from her school to see the accused to ask for one thing or the other as a child who always respect and goes after anyone who would encourage her, she went straight to his room and asked him for one thousand Leones,” PW2 had told the Magistrate Court during preliminary investigation.
The accused is said to have told his victim that he can only give her money this time if she can “play” with him. With that, the 23-years old man violated the little girl. After that, it was a regular affair until her parents detected when her playmate became suspicious and started called her “married woman” and decided to investigate.
