In what looks like a bizarre, Good Samaritan tricycle rider in Kano, Auwalu Salisu (22 years) has returned N15 million to the owner of his tricycle by a passenger.
The passenger who came from Chad to buy goods in Kano forgot the money to include; 10.130 million CFA and N2.9 million and when converted will be N15 million.
The tricycle rider Salisu, a resident of Yankaba in the Nasarawa local government area of the state metropolis while speaking to Arewa Radio in Kano, said he did not notice that his passenger had forgotten the money until he reached home.
He said after discovering the money on reaching home, he informed his parents who ordered him to go and look for the owner.
“I took the man from Badawa to Bata. I went back there after informing my parents. When I got there, I didn’t meet him and I kept searching.
“I went back home and gave the money to my mother who kept it inside her wardrobe. I was afraid because I was eager to hand over the money back to the owner,” he said.
According to him when they were thinking of the way out with his parents, he heard an announcement on the radio, and a number was given to reach the owner.
“I heard the announcement on Arewa Radio, and they gave a number. I called the number and the owner said he would come to our house, but I said no. We should meet at the Radio Station. We met there and I gave him his money.”
Salisu, who was accompanied by his parents, said “I had no intention to touch a penny, it’s not mine, as such prohibited for me despite the difficult situation we were facing at home.”
“We barely cook two times in a day, even yesterday we couldn’t cook while the money was with us,” his father said.
On his part, the owner of the money said he never thought good people like the boy existed on earth, and that he had given up on the money.
Speaking through his brother, Musa Hassan, the owner appreciated the boy and his parents for raising him properly.
“I never thought these kinds of boys existed on earth. I had given up already, but I got my money back. Alhamdulillah! I appreciate him and his parents. They are facing difficulties but they didn’t touch even a penny from my money,” the owner said.
The owner then appreciated the boy with the sum of N400,000.00
