Nigerian journalist returns lost $3,000 to owner ABDULKADIR-SHEHU

Abdulkadir Shehu, a journalist with Progress FM in Gombe has returned the $3,000 he found along the road to the owner.

“They couldn’t go ahead because there was no money. My son is still under medical supervision”, he said.

Shehu stressed that poverty should not be an excuse to be dishonest, adding that Allah would judge him if he spent the money.

“In Islam, the Messenger of Allah told us that whoever finds a missing thing in the city, must seek its owner for a year.’’
