“I have not met them yet. The police tell me they have all moved from the area as this matter got to court for fear of their lives.”He added, “I have tried to reach them [but] it’s not been successful yet but I’ll be working with the police so even if we can agree to meet at the police station or at a safe location, we can do so and then I can take up the bail application and other matters from there.”
The two are standing trial for allegedly killing Ishmael Abdallah for rituals.Their ages had been in contention with many questioning the veracity of the details provided in court.
