Ninjaman Remanded in Custody

Desmond ‘Ninjaman’ Ballentine, was yesterday remanded in custody when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court to answer to charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

After being sought by police in connection with the murder of Ricardo ‘Ricky Trooper’ Johnson at his Marl Road residence last week Monday. Ninjaman turned himself in to the police last week Wednesday.

According to police report, Ninjaman was among three men who drove up in a grey vehicle and shot Johnson as he swept his yard. When police declared him as a person of interest in the murder, the deejay embarked on a media campaign and declared his innocence saying he had retired from a life of crime.

Ninjaman has been in custody ever since and will return to court on April 7.

Efforts are being made by the police force to nab the other two men who are suspected of chasing and shooting Johnson to death.
