Okada Man Who Returned Phone and Said He Wants Only Prayers Honoured in Front of His Pastor & Church Members

  • An okada man, Tosin, who returned a mobile phone and refused monetary reward has been honoured in a greater measure
  • The phone owner, Hajj-Saheed Omo-Iya Kunmi, raised the sum of N50,000 from people and took it to Tosin's church during service
  • Saheed was given the opportunity to speak to the church members about Tosin and presented the money to him publicly

A Nigerian man, Tosin, who drives an okada to make a living has been rewarded for his honesty. What amazed people was that he earlier rejected a monetary offer.

In an earlier report, a young man, Hajj-Saheed Omo-Iya Kunmi, narrated how after misplacing his mobile phone, he became confused about how to get it back.

On Sunday, June 19, Saheed went to Tosin's church after he had raised some more money for him. He used the visit to speak about the man to the congregation.

Tosin rewarded publicly

He said:

"May almighty God bless Tosin and grant his desires! May he live long to fulfill his destiny. Special thanks to all my friends at home and abroad who donated to the cause. You made putting smile on someone's face today a possibility. Thank you all!!!"

The man also thanked New Life Baptist Church, Sabo, for allowing him and his friends to address the congregation.

Speaking with Legit.ng on the church's reaction, he said:

"At the onset, they had mixed feelings... They were scared that strangers came into their midst but after assuring them that we came to appreciate the guy's selfless act, they were shocked and surprised. When I announced the reward, there was a loud ovation and afterwards, they felt sober when I passed the message of honesty and maintaining one's integrity."
