An old video featuring well-known AYV journalist Samuel Wise Bangura has resurfaced online, showing him allegedly attempting to engage in illegal money doubling activities, shortly after he alleged to have been robbed of money and valuables including $7,000, an iPhone 14 Pro Max and several bank ID cards along Wilkinson Road in Freetown.

The video has garnered attention after being posted by the popular Facebook blog page Salone Gossip, which has uncovered details from alleged eyewitnesses.

According to several witnesses, some of whom reside in close proximity to the location of the incident, Samuel Wise Bangura was spotted near Grano Restaurant on Wilkinson Road, purportedly engaging in a transaction with fraudsters. An altercation arose over the filming of the money-doubling activity, resulting in an argument that took a turn for the worse.

The situation took a surprising turn when an elderly woman intervened and rescued Bangura from the clutches of the alleged thugs. She ushered him into her living room, where he was photographed wearing a yellow shirt and blue jeans, as seen in the images he later shared online.

In response to Samuel Wise Bangura’s claim that he was merely covering an event, a neighbor familiar with the incident came forward to debunk his assertion. The individual emphatically stated that Bangura was, in fact, inside the house to engage in a deal with the suspected criminals, rather than reporting on an event. The neighbor questioned the plausibility of Bangura’s explanation, given the well-known criminal activities associated with the house in question, which is known to host thieves, thugs, and fraudsters.
