Nigerian man raises alarm, claims he mistakenly sent N500k to Davido’s account

A Nigerian man, Gideon Osazee Uwen, has claimed that he erroneously transferred the sum of N500,000 to music star, Davido’s bank account.

He took to Twitter (X) to plead with the award winning singer to send the money back to him as he was supposed to send it to a friend with same name (David Adeleke).

Gideon shared a screenshot on the microblogging platform, of the transaction and tagged Davido so that he could expedite the refund.

In the transaction receipt, it could be seen that he had a balance of N50,000 after transferring N500,000 to a Wema bank account.

CorrectNG recalls that 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 Lago 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 🌚”
