Nigerian boy receives huge money for returning lost phone to its owner in Rivers

A Senior Secondary school student identified Philemon Igbokwe, has been rewarded with a massive sum of N340,000 for returning to its rightful owner a missing phone he found in the restroom at a wedding ceremony in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

A lawyer, Emma Okah, via his Facebook on Sunday, April 11, said Igbokwe was hailed for returning the phone, despite not having a phone of his own.

According to him, “Yesterday, I chaired the wedding event of Mr. Victor Emma Woke from Elele Town and his wife Joy from Eleme at Exquisite Event Centre, (Eliozu), G.U. Ake Road, PH.

Philemon demonstrated a rare feat of honesty by picking and returning a new android phone forgotten by its owner in the restroom. The MC announced this at the event and people were excited to see such show of honesty from a young boy in a country riddled with vices.

I announced a cash reward of N50,000. while Hon Josiah Olu did N50,000 and Co-Chairman Dr John Bosco – $500. By this, Philemon Igbokwe will go home with N340,000 for returning a phone which if sold as a stolen item, would not make N40,000.

I am proud to Congratulate Philemon and his parents for the example he has shown that there are still young ones with integrity in our country. I pray God to uphold Philemon and his family in greatness, honour and success in life.”
