Friday, August 24, 2007

Tabara Samba, a Senegalese woman accused of killing, yesterday admitted splashing out hot oil on her late husband, Ebrima Nyan, when the case resumed at the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court, presided over by Magistrate Pa Harry Jammeh.

Testifying under cross examination by Police Prosecutor Commissioner, Ebrima Dibba, Ms Samba said the incident occurred after her late husband allegedly hit her in the kitchen. She said she then opted to retaliate by splashing hot oil on Ebrima Nyan. However, she told the court that her vengeful action was not calculated to kill her late husband and then exhibited profound remorse with her action.

Tabara Samba’s bitter cry resonated the court, when she was shown bunch of pictures of her late husband’s body by Prosecutor Dibba. She said her marriage with Ebrima Nyan had been peaceful.

She then told the court that she met Ebrima in Fajara in 2004. She confirmed at the court that she was married to a Senegalese Police Commissioner Secka, with whom she had three kids. She said two of her sons are serving in the Senegalese Armed Forces and the Police, respectively. The case continues today.
