"Yesterday a rider forgot his bag in the cub with KSh 90k and over KSh 100k and he didn't even seem pressured. It's me who texted him to ask him to collect the missing bag and he told me to deliver in my free time. How much should I demand as a payment," Bena posed.

"Thank you so much, Blessed Bena. You are an amazing persona. I have received everything as I left including cash, phone, passport and ID. God bless you," Irungu posted.
Man praised for returning money
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young Nigerian man, Olasupo Abideen, was celebrated for his honesty after he returned the sum of $2397 (N991,159.50) in August 2021.
According to the man in a Facebook post, the money was mistakenly paid into his account by a company he was working for.
He said what he did was a normal thing but our society has become so rotten that such an honest act is frowned at. Olasupo’s act caught the attention of the Gani Fawehinmi Integrity Awards and he was given a plaque.
