Police Arrest 18-Year-Old for Murder of Commercial Driver

KAKATA, Margibi – Police in Kakata are investigating an 18-year-old man as the prime suspect in the mysterious death of a commercial bus driver who was stabbed to death last Wednesday morning.

Mohammed Kanneh, along with two other accomplices, allegedly stabbed a commercial bus driver, Abu Sesay, to death after they unsuccessfully attempted to steal Sesay’s cell phone.

Kanneh said he used a pair of scissors to stab the deceased on his neck after Sesay grabbed him by shirt to challenge him for the robbery attempt. Kanneh said at this moment, one of his accomplices, Michael Gabriel, gave the pair of scissors to him, which he used to stab Sesay.

He had been on the run since the crime. On Monday, police received a tip off from a relative who overheard Kanneh telling his mother that he had stabbed someone and was seeking a means to escape.

Margibi Police Superintendent William Johnson told a local radio station in an interview that police are investigating the suspect and expect him to be subsequently charged and sent to court.
