Video footage made available by officials of Primetime Limited, organizers and producers of the National Science and Maths Quiz, has revealed how the hand bag of quiz mistress Dr Elsie Effah Kaufmann was stolen.

The bag containing her IDs, car key, wallet with an undisclosed amount of money and quiz questions among others was stolen at the final held on Thursday at the National Theatre, Accra.

The wallet has, however, been found, at the campus of University of Ghana.

The video showed how a young man in his mid 20s found himself on the stage during the presentation of the trophy to winners Prempeh College.

Pretending to be making a call, the unidentified man bent to pick the bag from the quiz mistress’ desk into a backpack he was holding.

“The footage is not so clear,” Production Supervisor at Primetime Limited Stephen Kofi Yankey posted on his Facebook page on Sunday.

“We are still checking the other cameras to see if [the thief] was captured clearly.”

A call has been sent out to the public to help identify the thief as police continues investigations into the matter.
