Northern Man Who Returned 500,000 Naira Forgotten In His Tricycle Receives Special Gift From Sultan

A Northern man by the name of Akilu Haruna has proven that there are still a lot of good people in this world. He demonstrated true human kindness and empathy when a group of passengers he carried in his tricycle forgot a bag containing half a million naira among other things.

Akilu who is a Keke napep driver in the city of Jos drove some business men to their respective destination. As they alighted, they unfortunately forgot their bag containing 500,000.

Akilu narrates that at the time he had no money to even feed himself and his family but nevertheless he tracked them down and returned their property to them.

When asked why he did this? He responds "I Allah will not be pleased with me for taking what is not mine and it is a big sin in Islam." The business men rewarded him with a sum of 5,000 naira and thanked him immensely.

For this good gesture, malam Akilu Haruna became a mini celebrity in his town. Many come to his house to take pictures and upload on their social media. The news of his good gesture eventually fell on the ears of the Sultan of Sokoto the leader of Muslims in Nigeria.

The Sultan invited him to his castle, arranged a mini banquet and rewarded him with the same amount which he returned. Malam Akilu admitted that he had never held such a large amount of money in his life plus the Keke napep he was driving was a lease from someone, with this gift he would finally be able to afford his own and become independent.

He further comments "Allah initially tested my greed with the first 500,000. Now that I have passed the test, He has gifted me with my own."

We should all learn from the story of this great man. It always pays to be good and honest.
