Ninja Man remanded

DANCEHALL entertainer Ninja Man, who along with his son and two other men are charged with murder, was remanded when he appeared in the Supreme Court today.
Ninja Man, whose real name is Desmond Ballentine, along with his son Janeil, Dennis Clayton and Seymour Samuels, have been jointly charged with the murder of Robert
Johnson, who was shot and killed in Tower Hill, St Andrew last year.
Police alleged that the four, who were travelling in a grey motor car, drove up to Johnson’s home at Marl Road and fired several shots hitting Johnson.
Ninja Man, who is being represented by attorney Norma Linton, appeared in court with his face bushy and his hair unkempt.
No application was made for bail by his attorney and the case is set to continue on April 23.
Janeil Ballentine and Clayton were also remanded in custody while Samuels had his bail extended.
Ninja Man turned himself in to the police, but his son was held weeks later. He was allegedly found hiding in a house in deep rural Jamaica.
