Magistrate Bankole Shyllon of the Freetown Court No 3 has refused bail to Peter Fawundu who stands on a one-count charge of house breaking and larceny.

After reading the charge sheet, Magistrate Shyllon then informed the court that the accused had once faced trial in his court some eleven years ago when he was a juvenile. He added that on that time the accused was charged with stealing a car tape at Lumley, adding that he was set free and lawyer M.P Fofanah then adopted him.
The magistrate then told him that he was worry over Peter Fawundu “as he has graduated in criminology”, adding that, “now he is before this court on house breaking charges”.
However, on these grounds the accused was refused bail and remanded at the Pademba Road Prisons.
The matter comes up on November 27.
