According to Superintendent David Kujabi, Colley has been granted bail in the afternoon and couldn’t confirm whether the former prisons Commander has appeared before a Court of competent jurisprudence. ‘‘If he has been charged, he may likely have been taken to court. That I can confirm to you,’’ he explained.
