Back in 2014, Ms. Josephine Agwu found #12 million inside the airport toilet and returned it. She was praised and received cash gifts for the good act. Subsequently, she found #10 million, #8 million, and a further #7 million forgotten by travellers in the airport, and each time, she handed the suitcase containing the money over to the authorities.

She lamented:

As you see me, I’m a person people know around the whole world today. But see.

Nobody in Nigeria will do what I did. 

I return money four times in Nigeria. I’m a cleaner, the year 2014 in Murtala Muhammed airport, I returned 12 million, return 10 million, return 8 million, return 7 million.

But if na other countries, I’ll be an ambassador to telling youths that honesty is paying. But now see. They close it. Nobody to remember it.

But I’m happy. I know that one day… She said in her local tongue

She continued:

Only God can survive this Nigeria because people in Nigeria, evil people in Nigeria, they don’t want to help people, help poor. People are suffering.
