According to Emmanuel, the money was very large for him and he was scared of the amount. He brought it home to his aunt whom he told to keep it safe for him.

It turns out that the money belongs to a rich businesswoman, Musa Yancy who announced on radio and pleaded with anyone who has seen the money to return it. Surprisingly, Emmanuel returned the money to the businesswoman which immediately earned him fame and he was tagged a hero as his story made headlines.

Emmanuel received multiple threats following his good deed and he was also mocked by his friends who told him that he would never be rich for returning the money.
