Fatmata Tucker Moijueh, who allegedly murdered her boyfriend at the Suffizan Guest House at Lungi, last Friday before Justice Alusine Sesay of the Freetown High Court told the court that the deceased Saidu Bangura forced  her to have sex.

She testified that at their arrival at the guest house in Lungi, the deceased went inside while she waited outside.

She said the deceased left her at the guest house and went to a night club with his friend.

“After 2am, the deceased returned at the guest house drunk and asked me to have sex with him. I refused and the deceased hold on my hand and squeezed my neck, removed a dagger and forced me to have sex with him. I insisted and he used a dagger to stab me on my left hand,” he said.

She explained that they struggled to the extent that the Chinese light in the room went off, while the deceased removed a cutlass from a plastic bag.

“I asked the deceased as to whether he wanted to kill me. He jumped onto the bed and hit me with the cutlass on my stomach and I bled. I pushed him and he subsequently fell on the cutlass and started bleeding,” she testified.

The accused was arraigned on one count of murder contrary to the laws of Sierra Leone.

The prosecution alleged that the accused on Sunday 6 April, 2014 at the Suffizan Guest House in Lungi, Port Loko murdered the deceased.

The matter was adjourned to 10 November, 2015 for further testimony.
