A commercial tricycle (Keke Napep) rider’s display of honesty and integrity in Katsina state has earned him accolades.
The keke rider known as Labani found a pasenger’s iPhone 13 Pro Max in the backseat of his tricycle and returned it to its rightful owner.
Vera Onyekwere, a friend of the phone owner took to social media to share the story, expressing gratitude for the man’s uncommon behaviour. She said that her friend forgot the phone in Labani’s keke and when she realised it, she put a call across, which he picked.
The tricyclist responded positively by promising to return the phone as soon as he is done transporting his passengers to their location, and much to the owner’s surprise, he kept his word.
Interestingly after returning the phone, he was offered monetary reward but he refused to collect it, citing his principles as a devout Muslim. Labani eventually accepted the cash after a little insistence from the owner.
Sharing photos of the moment Labani handed the phone to the owner, Vera wrote; “Meet labani he is from Kastina state. He is a Muslim, he returned this my Friends iPhone 13 Pro Max that I am holding( left hand ) , the lady in the picture is the owner of the phone , the phone was mistakenly forgotten inside his keke and he was called to return it He said he will return it , that he is carrying passenger that once he offloads them he will come to the location and hand it over
He returned the phone and went back inside his keke to drive off without requesting for anything , he was called back and was offered money in appreciation he declined but said he can’t see what’s not his own and take it that he is a core Muslim that they don’t stèàl, was begged to take the money which he later accepted.
He needs to be appreciated 🤝God bless you Lebani. Phone of over 1millon he returned it despite knowing the worth of the phone.”
