A witness from Rainbow Centre, Matilda King said in her testimony that when she checked the four girls she noticed that the girls have been tampered with.

The lawyer for the convict, lawyer M.S. Kallon begged the judge for mercy saying that this is the first time the convict is going against the laws of Sierra Leone. The judge in his ruling said this is a very serious issue noting that all the girls are under the age of ten, noting that the law will be hard on Ibrahim Kargbo.
