A security guard at the Freetown International conference Hall, Aberdeen in Freetown, has arrested the renowned Bintumani mobile phone thief on Friday 25th March 2022.

According to the Pendras Security on duty, the young man pretended to be invited to the ongoing Rotary conference. When asked for his invitation, he stated that he was attending the conference to meet someone.

During his interrogation, however, a journalist recognized him as the young man caught on CCTV camera stealing a mobile phone from a lady’s bag at a Woman in the Media Sierra Leone programme at the Bintumani Hotel.

Awoko reports that While the security guards resumed the interrogation, the journalist conducted a quick online search for the viral CCTV clip and discovered it and presented it to the security.

The Bintumani mobile phone thief was then arrested and handed over to the Aberdeen Police, where he was being interrogated.
