Justice Komba Kamanda sentenced Ibrahim Bangura to ten years in the Male Correctional Centre in Freetown after he pleaded guilty to stealing from a vehicle. On 2 April 2014, in Lumley, Bangura and Bankole Roy stole Le8 million worth of goods and cash from a vehicle. The two men were arrested and later charged to court on two counts of Conspiracy and Larceny. They have been incarcerated at the Male Correctional Center in Freetown for about five years. At the Siaka Stevens Street High Court in Freetown last week Justice Komba Kamanda ordered that Ibrahim Bangura, the first accused, be sentenced to five years in prison on each charge. The sentence, according to the Judge, should run consecutively. This means Bangura will spend ten years in prison. For the second accused Bankole Roy, Justice Kamanda ordered that he be released on 10 January 2020. The sentence came after the two men changed their plea from not guilty to guilty. Bangura received a longer sentence because he misbehaved in court.
