Forgetting things is something that happens to everyone. But leaving behind a very huge sum of money in a tricycle is another level of forgetfulness altogether. But this was the situation a Keke Napep driver in Akwa-Ibom faced recently while towing passengers from one place to another.
In one of his many trips back and forth in the eastern state, he discovered that a passenger 'forgot' a huge sum of money in his Keke-Napep. The surprised driver had no idea what to do with this package left behind in his car.
He eventually decided to take it to the Akwa-Ibom Broadcasting Corporation. Upon reaching their quarters, the money was taken to the Marketing Directorate of the organisation from whence investigation about the owner of the money is being conducted.
Even more, a correspondent in the broadcasting station named Harrison Essien took to his Facebook page to make noise about the 'forgotten' money.

On his Facebook page, he narrated how he came to know about the money. Then, he went on to talk about how the rightful owner could come reclaim it. Harrison also shared a picture of the money contained in what is called a 'Ghana-must-go' bag.

"A large sum of money (amount withheld) forgotten in a tricycle was brought to our newsroom today by the honest tricycle rider.
"The money was forgotten by a passenger in the "keke" which plied Itam Junction in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, during the yuletide.
"The money is now being deposited in our Marketing Directorate. The owner of the money or members of the public who have knowledge of anyone, who lost a substantial amount of money are requested to come to AKBC Corporate Headquarters, 3, Udo Udoma Avenue, Uyo, with adequate proof of ownership to get the same amount."
As expected, many comments have trailed this post. Some people were of the opinion that the Keke driver had returned the money out of fear, not morality. Some blamed him for returning it while others praised his uprightness.

Keke Napep riders must really be confronted with a lot of lost items on a daily basis. Recently, a driver told ladies to stop refusing Maruwa drivers because, most times, they made more money than those in suits.
