A thief in Guinea has warmly congratulated police for catching him in a video that is going viral on social media.
Boubacar Diallo, a student at a technical college in Mamou, and his accomplice freely admitted having stolen 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.
“The national police head office should be congratulated. I also want to say that the police needs equipment because it has well-trained officers. Seriously,” said Diallo.
He added that he never imagined that he would be caught so quickly and said he regretted his crime and would not steal again.
