A Nigerian mechanic known as Mr. Timothy is being hailed for demonstrating true integrity and principle in the face of temptation.
The young man returned N10.8 million (Ten Million, Eight Hundred Thousand Naira) which a client mistakenly transferred to his bank account.
The owner of the money could be seen in a video showing appreciation to Timothy and calling on everyone to praise him for his honesty.
According to the client whose name was not disclosed, the mechanic who repairs his own car went to the bank to return the money.
He urged people who are looking for a trustworthy mechanic to seek the services of Timothy whenever they need to repair their vehicles.
In the viral video, eyewitnesses could be seen clapping and cheering after the client narrated what happened.

@eddybliss02; Nice one there God bless him, I am sure he is not of CORN regime. Good mornig Katty Amaka
@jane_fblog; All those people shaking and congratulating him in their mind be saying guy you too mumu honestly 😂😂
@Cleopatran_;But why is he face looking like he’s regretting the decision? He’s not happy 😂
@TsuwaTHOMPSON; This is the type of Nigerian we want to hear about, applaud and reward!
I wish we could crowdfund at least N250,000 for him – I’ll start it with N25,000.00. To change this corrupt, evil culture many at the top have perpetuated, we must encourage right behaviour.
In similar, a honest Nigerian man passed off on a chance to be over one million naira richer after money was mistakenly credited to his account.
The guy known as @KingOpeOfAbj on Twitter said 1,900 BUSD equivalent to N1.4 million was deposited into his Bitcoin wallet and he had the thought of using the money to celebrate this December.
He said he thought of booking flight to Lagos immediately and commence steady ‘balling’ with the money.
However, he had a change of heart because he later realised that it was not miracle money.
He wrote; Earlier today someone mistakenly deposited 1900 busd to my Wallet, that’s like N1.4m, lots of thoughts came in like Abi na December miracle money ni, make I rush book my Lagos flight go do 2weeks balling back to back with 1.4m.
but then I knew… It was NO miracle money, this is definitely someone’s hard earn money and it’s December, what if it was my money?
I mean it could someone’s whole year savings so i decided to leave it while waiting to be contacted by the owner or customer service which happened this evening. It was fully refunded. Well… guess I won’t be oppressing nobody in Lagos this December.
