A local thief in Guinea with the name, Boubacar Diallo has reportedly congratulated the police for catching him in a video that has been trending on social media in the country.
Diallo, a student at a technical college in Mamou, and his accomplice freely admitted to stealing 50m Guinean francs ($5,600; £4,160) from a phone shop in the northwestern city.
In front of the cameras, Diallo called for more resources to be given to the police. In his words, ‘the national police head office should be congratulated. I also want to say that the police needs equipment because it has well-trained officers’.
He then added that he never imagined that he would be caught so quickly and said he regretted his crime.
