A young Nigerian driver, Emmanuel Christoper, has been praised online for his utmost honesty in returning valuables a passenger left in his car in Abuja. A woman known as Lara Wise who narrated his act of kindness on Facebook revealed that the man is a choir member in her church and he is a very committed person.
According to her, after Emmanuel dropped a female passenger in the federal capital, he soon realised she left behind a fat wallet in the back seat.
Not sure who really owns it, the man opened the purse to discover wads of dollar bills and other foreign currencies. He was able to count over $3000 (N1,247,520) and some other currencies in different denominations. Apart from the money, there were three ATM cards. The taxi driver also found three international passports.
Speaking to Lara about the encounter and the temptation to take the money, he said: “My mind spoke to me and I spoke back to my mind.” When Emmanuel returned the money and valuables, the lady was in shock and kept shedding hot tears.
She never rewarded the driver with a dime. Despite that, he stated that he feels so much at peace with what he had done.
