Policeman finds a lost wallet

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a police officer was praised for his act of honesty which is considered very rare among men of the Nigerian police. He proved that there are honest policemen in the force.

The officer named Seargent Sampson Ekikere found a lost wallet containing cash, a driver's license, and an ATM card. The incident happened inside a Lagos bus when he was going to work.

The wallet belonged to Lukman Abaja who boarded the same bus as Ekikere from Ikeja. The wallet fell from his pocket as he alighted at Leventis Bus Stop.
