Dancehall deejay, who has been incarcerated since 2009, Ninja Man, has been granted bail.  Ninja Man, whose real name is Desmond Ballentine, was arrested and charged jointly with his son, Janiel and two other men, Dennis Clayton and Seymour Samuels with the March 16, 2009 murder of Richard Johnson.

Shortly after the incident, when Ninja Man learned that he was being sought by the police as a person of interest, Ninja Man turned himself in to the police.

Ninja Man, who is no stranger to criminal charges, has been granted bail at the sum of million with surety.  His son has also been granted bail at the same sum.

Following the announcement that the Ninja had been granted bail, there were talks on the street about his ability to come up with that sum.  However, the ninja has silenced the talks on the street as he is now, back on the streets.

The terms and conditions of his bail are stringent however, as he is to surrender his travel documents, as well as he is not to be seen outside of his home, any time before 8:00am and later than 6:00pm.  He is also to report to the Oracabessa police six days of the week, from Monday to Saturday.

Being a free man, indefinitely at least, Ninja Man said that there are many issues that he wishes to address, since he could not, during his time of incarceration, these include, the present Prime Minister, Mrs. Portia Simpson-Miller and former Prime Minister, Bruce Golding.

Ninja Man and his son are to return to court on July 15.
