- A Keke driver returned a whooping sum of N1.1m to a passenger who had forgotten it in his tricycle
- According to a Twitter user who shared the story, the Keke driver was rewarded with N200 worth of airtime
- This has caused an outrage on social media as many people consider the reward too little
There is a popular belief that every person who carries out a kind and selfless act gets a reward in heaven. However, integrity is a rare commodity in our nation; oftentimes, it is more rare when huge money is involved. However, there are still some honest people who deserve rewards for their kind gestures.
This is clearly reflected in the way social media has been reacting towards the story keke driver identified as Usman. According to the post, he got N200 worth of airtime after he returned N1.1m to a passenger who forgot it in his tricycle.
The post suggests that Usman went the extra mile to get the money across to the rightful owner despite his friends advising him to keep it and do something useful with the money. The incident which happened in Jalingo, Taraba, has since gone viral on social media.

Reactions to the story has, however, been a mixed one with two major sides. Some people believe that he should have been rewarded better seeing as he went the extra mile to return the money.
Others, however, played the devil's advocate' as they opined that his reward is in heaven and there was probably a good reason why the seemingly ungrateful passenger rewarded him with such a meager amount.
