Ninjaman has been transferred from the St Catherine Adult Correctional Centre in Spanish Town to the Horizon Adult Remand Centre, Kingston.
The move comes days after a leaked video of the incarcerated Dancehall superstar went viral on social media.
In the clip which surfaced last month, Ninjaman, whose given name is Desmond Ballentine, can be seen smoking a spliff, while showing off his brand new pair of Clarks to fellow inmates and jokingly telling them he is a modern day bad man.
“A we mek jail look like blood*****t road. Clarks clean like whistle, bottom brand new,” the former Downsound records deejay said as inmates cheered him on, “We a modern badman wid modern badness,” he continued.
This is the second time Ninjaman has been relocated since the start of the year. Back in January he was moved after reportedly getting the cold shoulder from fellow inmates and some prison officials.
Last year December Ninjaman was sentenced to life imprisonment for his murder conviction. He was given was given 25 years at hard labour for the 2009 murder of Ricardo ‘Ricky Trooper’ Johnson and 20 years for shooting with intent.
Judge Martin Gayle says he must serve at least 25 years in prison before he is eligible to be released.
The Don Gorgon’s co-accused, his son Janeil and Dennis Clayton were also sentenced to life in prison. Ninjaman’s lawyer, Valerie Neita Robertson says the former Downsound records artist will appeal the conviction.
