Dancehall entertainer, Ninjaman, is in jail awaiting trial for a murder case that is almost a decade old. If convicted he could be joining Vybz Kartel at the same prison.
The don gorgon is currently locked up at Central Police Station in Kingston.
The embattled entertainer was remanded after High Court judge, Justice Martin Gayle, ordered that the murder trial involving the popular entertainer commence.
A source close to case, however, said the entertainer is relieved the trial has begun, but not pleased with being remanded.
“Ninja glad seh di trial finally start, because a long time dis case a linger over him head. Dem say dem have to remand him ’cause a nuff time defendant run weh after dem case start. But Ninja nah run go no where,” said the source, who requested anonymity.
Ninjaman (given name Desmond Ballentine), along with his son Jahneil, is charged with the March 2009 murder of Ricardo Johnson on Marl Road in Kingston. He was granted bail in 2012.
