President of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ), Ahmed Sahid Nasralla has said that a viral video showing. AYV journalist, Samuel Wise Bangura engaging in money-doubling activities was part of an investigation.

Nasralla in a Twitter post also tasked Bangura to publicly clarify his alleged involvement in the scheme.

The AYV journalist claimed he was robbed on Monday afternoon of $7,000, iPhone 14 pro max, and other valuables. But a report and video from social media blogging platform, Salone Gossip says Bangura was engaged in fraudulent activities.

The SLAJ President said he spoke with Bangura and that he denied the insinuation of the video.

“He says the video of him doing rounds on social media currently was part of an investigation into money doubling scams he has been conducting for the past 2 months with his cameraman, J-Light,” Nasralla wrote.

He further added that he has admonished the TV presenter to issue out a statement “immediately” to gain assurance of the general public.
