A few months after his arrest by police in Margibi County for allegedly stabbing to death a senior student of the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) in Kakata, Margibi, suspect Isaac Dolo has openly confirmed in court that he committed the murder. Dolo made the confession in the 13th Judicial Circuit Court in Kakata after the clerk of court read the indictment to him recently when he was arraigned in court in view of the public.
He told the court that he was under the influence of alcohol, and pleaded for mercy from the court, but has been sentenced for 35 years at age 18. Usually, in a court of competent jurisdiction, an indictment is read by the clerk of court to the defendant and thereafter seeks his plead. Most defendants plead not guilty.
The 13th Judicial Circuit Court Clerk read the indictment to defendant Isaac Dolo and asked him: Mr. Defendant, what is your plead? He responded guilty to the killing of the late Moses Kolleh, a senior student of the BWI. Dolo was nabbed by police in April 2014 after he committed the act at a play station booth in Kakata at about 12 a.m. during a quarrel with the deceased.
In April, a brother of the late Moses Kolleh, Joseph Kolleh told The NewDawn Correspondent in the county that the confusion started when his late brother, who was at the play station, decided to go home but the late Isaac Dolo stood at the entrance of the booth. Both individuals were reportedly intoxicated.
Joseph narrated that Moses Kolleh asked the late Isaac Dolo to leave the entrance of the booth to allow him out, but Isaac allegedly refused and instead, insulted Moses – something according to him, that led to a very serious commotion between the both of them (Moses and Isaac).
He added that in that moment, Moses pulled out a knife from his back pocket and stabbed the late Isaac Dolo on his side for the first time. According to him, Dolo escaped the scene but Moses pursued him and further stabbed him several times to the point of death.
Joseph Kolleh added that an ambulance was immediately called from the C. H. Rennie Hospital in Kakata to take the victim at the hospital, but he died in the ambulance enroute to the hospital.
