"The bolt driver has called the man and refunded him his balance of 396,000. Long and short of the story is that there are still good people in Nigeria. The money may look small but with the present situation of things in the country, it wouldn't have taken him anything to run away with the money.
"Bolt should have a special reward for such drivers coz they represent them well."

The receipts of the first and second transactions were also shared on Instagram.
