Police officer rejects cash reward after returning lost wallet
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian policeman had rejected a cash reward after returning a lost wallet.
The officer named Seargent Sampson Ekikere found a lost wallet containing cash, a driver’s license, and an ATM card. The incident happened inside a Lagos bus when he was going to work.
The wallet belonged to Lukman Abaja who boarded the same bus as Ekikere from Ikeja. The wallet fell from his pocket as he alighted at Leventis Bus Stop.
Seargent Sampson quickly set machinery in motion to find the owner of the wallet and to return it. He first called a phone number he found in the wallet, but it was not reachable.
