A uniformed officer of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) has been fired after he was caught on a CCTV camera stealing a mobile phone and shoplifting at a supermarket.

Ibrahim Mohammed Alemiakurugo entered the Joy Step Supermarket in Bolgatanga, in the Upper East Region, and stole a black Tecno smartphone belonging to a shopper.

The shopper had left the phone on the cashier's counter to pay for items he had purchased, and within that moment, Ibrahim moved in, placed black polythene over the device and quickly shoved it into his pocket.
