Popular deejay and founder of the One Umbrella Movement, Desmond Ballentine, aka Nnjaman, who is wanted by the police for questioning in regard to the murder of a man known as Ricky Trooper, told Yardflex that he knows nothing about the killing.
Ninjaman is currently listed as a person of interest in the murder which reportedly took place in the Marl Road area of Kingston 11 on Tuesday.
According to the Constabulary Communication Network, about 11:15 am, Johnson, otherwise called ‘Ricky Trooper’ — not the selector — was sweeping his yard in the company of a friend when a grey motor car with three men aboard drove up. An argument reportedly developed between one of the men and Johnson’s friend and the car drove off. The vehicle later returned and the occupants opened fire, hitting Johnson. He died at the Kingston Public Hospital.
Ninjaman told Yardflex that he has contacted his lawyer, Norma Linton and they will be going in to the police sometime today (Wednesday).
“Right now a no time fi walk and shoot people. Me don’t know nothing about it. Me don’t even know who dem say dead,” he declared
