“I just want the world to know that honest people are still around us. The wallet has been with me for 17 months. The first day I found the wallet, I opened and went through hoping to find his mobile number and call but I didn’t see his number, but I saw his ID cards and I realised he was a student of the University of Ghana.

I checked his full name on his ID and I was convinced everybody likes Facebook and I searched him on Facebook hoping to find him. I sent him a message on Facebook but no response, I saw his sister on Facebook too and I sent her a message too, but there was no response…but someway somehow, I was convinced I will join the same car with him and I will give him his wallet just as he lost it,” he noted.

Walid also called on the public to always ensure they return missing items to their owners or ensure they report it to the police for the necessary action to be taken.
