Isatou Drammeh, 33 years old housewife and resident of Old Yundum came into conflict with the law after an alleged stealing and charming complaint she reported at Old Yundum Police turns out to be staged and false.
She was cautioned and charged for giving false information to a public officer upon discovering that she gave a misleading complaint to the police of alleged theft; induced by charms that turned out to be false.
Investigation revealed that the complainant turned suspect was entrusted with D297,000=00 by her own sister based in the USA sometimes back.
She decided to spend the money on business unilaterally without the approval of her sister. The business allegedly collapsed.
To cover up the lost business adventure, Isatou Drammeh decided to fake a scenario; claiming that she went to the Trust Bank Branch at Coastal road where she met a strange woman (begger) at the gate of the Bank.
The woman begged for D50, which she offered to her. She then entered the bank and cashed D250,000 from her account.
On her exit, she met the same woman; who again begged for another D50 and she offered her as before.
According to her, upon giving her D50 for the second time, she unsuspectingly surrendered the D250,000.00 to the woman. The mysterious woman later disappeared into thin air.
She decided to authenticate her story by filing a complaint at the Old Yundum Police Station for investigation.
The police conducted a detailed probe into the matter to substantiate the report, it was confirmed that there was no such transaction as claimed.
When the complainant was confronted with facts at hand, she had no options but to confessed the truth.
She revealed to investigators that it was because the people she gave clothes to on loan, failed to pay her, and the sister needed her money back; she had no option but to create a cover up story.
