Koroma told the court that he recognized the accused and recalled on the said date while on duty at the Aberdeen Police Station when he received a reported case of an abandoned corps from a concerned citizen at the above address in Freetown.
He said based on the information, himself together with a colleague officer immediately went to the scene of crime where they met the accused standing across the Street opposite the remains of Hannah Bockarie.
The witness said he approached the accused asking them whether they are living around the beach or know the deceased. In response, the accused said they did not know the deceased but according to the first accused a businessman and a musician by profession; he was sleeping at his bar on the day of the incident but said he did not hear any noise coming from within his business place.
