Drama unfolds as thief is made to lift heavy weight as punishment for stealing

Written by fazazy39

A young thief faced a unique choice after being caught in the act: prison or lifting a heavy weight beyond his capacity.

A circulating video on social media captured the moment when the thief was given the option to showcase his strength as an alternative to imprisonment.

The young man, appearing famished, received encouragement from a crowd of Sierra Leoneans who insisted he lift a locally made weight as an alternative to involving the police.

Despite multiple struggles and nearly falling to his knees, he eventually managed to lift the weight.
