A Nigerian keke driver, Dayyabu Anwalu, has become a millionaire overnight. This was after the Federal High Court fined the Police Service Commission on his behalf.
The sum of N3m was awarded to the driver as the court ordered for an immediate payment from the force’s account.
A good example of justice
The development was shared by a lawyer, Abba Hakima, on his Facebook page. The officers who were found guilty of maltreating Dayyabu are Abdullahi Duara, Khalifa, and former DPO of Kuntau Police Station, CSP Abdullahi.

Soldiers help keke driver and bicycle rider
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man, Kingsani Adikwu, shared a video as he narrated how two soldiers helped a keke driver and a bicycle man involved in an accident in Adamawa state.
According to the eyewitness, the bicycle man who caused the accident cried that he does not have enough money for repairs.
When the soldiers saw what was happening, they decided to step in. On seeing that the bicycle man was remorseful and poor, they paid the bill on his behalf.
