Nigerian pilgrim returns missing property including N500,000 belonging to Pakistani pilgrim

Nigeria already has a reputation of being home to some dishonest people, and an image change is highly needed. It is always commendable when Nigerians represent the country well and show the world that our integrity is not lost.

A Nigerian pilgrim from Nasarawa state, Yahaya Omaki, found a lost wallet while going round the Ka’aba in Mecca, as part of his pilgrimage.

The wallet was found to contain some valuables, including a huge sum of money reported to be N500,000 and it belonged to a Pakistani man, also a pilgrim identified as Faisal Saleem.
