“Unfortunately, you have been blocked. Asking her to return almost 2 million. I'm sure she will call it a miracle.”

@Iphie__ commented:

“By right of ownership, that's her money now. If you buy a land from a person and unbeknownst to them, there's gold in the land. Once money and documents of ownership have changed hands, they can't lay claim to the gold. This can also apply if the land were to be given as a gift.”

@capt _jayy said:

“It's the new WhatsApp update. Try to uninstall and reinstall the app.”

@RaybanJohn reacted:

“If I return am make I know wetin cause am.”

@Advantage_EG said:

“Where will she return the money to?”

@Lhoisada said:

“She buy the bail abi she no buy am?”

@Nero365 reacted:

“If I were to be her, I go chop the money and heaven will not fall.”
