Madiana Fayia, a businesswoman, made her first appearance before Magistrate Santigie Bangura at Pademba Road Court No.2 in Freetown on charges related to the possession of kush.

Fayia faces three counts: unlawful possession of kush contrary to Section 8(a) of the National Drugs Control Act No.10 of 2008, selling prohibited drugs contrary to Section 7(c) of the same Act, and offering for sale prohibited drugs, also contrary to Section 7(c) of the National Drugs Control Act No.10 of 2008.

The indictment alleges that on Friday, April 12, 2024, at Vincent Drive, Malama Lumley in the Western Area of Freetown, Fayia was found in possession of 110 wraps of kush weighing 40.5 grams without lawful authority.

Additionally, she was accused of selling and offering for sale prohibited drugs without lawful authority on the same date and place.

When the charges were read and explained to Fayia, no plea was taken. The prosecution’s witness was absent, prompting the prosecutor to request a short adjournment.

Magistrate Bangura denied bail, citing the nature of the offense, and remanded Fayia to the female correctional facility in Freetown. The matter was adjourned to June 11, 2024, for further hearings.
