Coco Ocean and Spa, a Five-Star hotel in The Gambia, has filed a civil suit against Sheikh Sidia Bayo, a Gambian-French after the hotel alleged that he and his entourage lodged for 13 nights and refused to pay the Standard informed.
The suit was filed against Sidia and one Philippe Andre Raymond Piere Etienne, also a French citizen. According to an affidavit signed by Sheikh Tijan Gaye, the director of administration of Coco Ocean Resort, the hotel is asking
Sidia Bayo and his companion to settle over one million dalasi which they have so far failed or refused to do. Part of the affidavit of Mr Gaye obtained by The Standard alleged that on the 3rd February 2017, both defendants Bayo and Philippe booked into his hotel and took a double-bedded Presidential Villa room for 13 nights but failing to settle the bills.
