According to a Twitter user, @Hassanpullo, a businessman from the East boarded the tricycle “Keke Napep” and forgot his ₦1,150,000 inside the tricycle. The keke driver on making the discovery, tracked the man down and returned the money at Jalingo, Taraba state.
In return, the man allegedly gifted him ₦200 as reward.
Below is a video of the driver in Hausa narrating the story:
The money owner is Stingy and ungrateful

If he did it fisabilillah he shouldn't expect renumeration but my problem with this is why is it being made a big deal that the dude gave him 200 bucks…what if it's someone else's money?

This happens almost everyday in Jalingo.
Got so good that I was used to it and eventually when I came back from service I was still thinking I was in Jalingo till the day I forgot my phone in a restaurant in Abuja and no one returned it. God bless you bro.

The money could have been the exact amount for someone else. God used the keke guy. The N200 reward could have been all the man had on him. But that's me being rational and ignoring the obvious intent in the message to incite a feud between the Hausa and Igbos here.
