When Mama Funke replied ‘yes’, the trader said she thinks she has a wallet that is hers. The businesswoman added that she would have returned it but there was no contact in the wallet to reach her with.
Money gathered dust
It came as a huge surprise that the woman never touched any of the cash inside. Over the period of three months, the money had gathered dust.
Awodiye said that though people may say that the trader returned the wallet because the money inside is not much, it only goes to show that there are honest people in the country.
