Witness Testifies Against Remy Ma

March 12, 2008 0

Remy Ma’s assault trial continued in Manhattan today (March 12). 21-year-old Oluwole Ajudun testified at the trial today that he saw Remy cock a .45-caliber handgun and get into the car with Makeda Barnes Joseph, whom Remy is accused of shooting.

According to the Associated Press, Ajudun made it know that Joseph was “like a sister to me” and that he had known her for about six years.

The witness, who is an accounting student, testified that after a party in Greenwich Village on July 14, 2007, he saw Remy get out of her Cadillac Escalade with what he described as a “sliver chrome” gun. “I saw her cock it back and jump in Makeda’s car” he said. Ajudun then said that he heard a pop moments later, and saw Remy leave Joseph’s car.

Ajudun’s testimony followed that of Crystal Ricks, who said she saw Remy approach Joseph’s car, but did not see a gun. Ricks did, however, hear a pop, see a flash, and saw Remy step out of Joseph’s car, but never saw her with the gun.

Currently, Remy is free on $250,000 bail, and faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted for first-degree assault and related crimes.
