Honest Nigerian writes letter to Diamond bank to refund money wrongly dispensed to him (Photos)

A man identified as Malam Adamu Askira has proven his integrity after an ATM dispensed more than what he requested for. In a letter he wrote to Diamond Bank, he informed the bank about how their ATM had dispensed N30,000 wrongly to him and he intended to return the cash.

In his letter, he claimed that the Diamond Bank ATM had been dispensing N5,000 anytime a customer made an attempt to withdraw N1,000. This made a lot of people to queue behind the machine to get some of the cash, which was surely as a result of an error on the machine.

The story was publicized on Facebook by a man called Sulaiman Confi. And he wrote:

“Honesty is the best policy An Abuja based Kanuri Man from Maiduguri, Malam Adamu Askira had returned the some of N30,000.00 erroneously dispensed to him by a @DiamondBankNG ATM in Wuse 2 Abuja.

He also alerted the Bank that the ATM was dispensing N1000 notes as N500 which led to long queue at the ATM.”

He attached the money and thanked the bank in anticipation of receiving it.

Recall that a Nigerian man, Michael Jonathan Asemota based in Qatar and sometimes in 2017 returned the sum of QR1,502,000 ($441,127.99), about N150 million wrongfully deposited into his account in Qatar.

Michael Asemota, who was a native of Edo state had opened an account with a cheque of QR150, 200 with an undisclosed commercial bank where he is the sole signatory of the account.

According to him, an alert came on his phone later that evening and that QR1,502,000 had been credited into his account by mistake instead of QR150,200. He believed since the money did not belong to him, he decided to return it to the bank.

Michael Asemota, for his goodwill, was recognised by not only the Qatari government, but also the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He was even recommended for a political position by the governor of Edo state.
