The man said to be sure the N3.2m in his account was not a machine error, he went to the ATM and withdrew N100k successfully. He took both the cash and the remaining balance to the bank.

Bank never rewarded his honesty

According to Ayodele, the bank only told him "thank you," and there was no reward for the act. He, however, said he was shown the cashier who made the mistake as the bank official wept.

In his words:

"I was not commended by the bank they only tell me thank you and I left the bank most especially the cashier that made the mistake was shown to me weeping profusely in the bank branch manager office."
