He added that the cannabis was found in his possession but it was owned by Musa who gave him to keep it while he goes to the office.
Prosecutor L.K. Bojang. of the DLEAG put it to Mr Jeng that he owns the cannabis and that is why it was found in his possession and knowing fully well that cannabis is illegal in the country.
“The distance between the office and the officers was very short why did you not alert them and show them what Musa gave you” L.K. Bojang put it to Mr. Jeng. “I could not because I never knew what Musa gave me was cannabis” said Mr.Jeng.
