Nonso added:

"I called his number as requested, lo and behold he described everything in the wallet intact to the last N1 (mind you, there's a huge sum of money in it). I went to meet him, to my utmost surprise, He blatantly refused to take 10k I offered him, insisting that He did what He did for humanity sake and not for rewards.
"Guys, I'm still dumbfounded. We still have Angels in Human form in Nigeria?"

He said he still has hope in Nigeria due to the experience.
