Okada Man Who Returned Phone and Said He Wants Only Prayers Honoured in Front of His Pastor & Church Members
An okada man, Tosin, who returned a mobile phone and refused monetary reward has been honoured in a greater measure
The phone owner, Hajj-Saheed Omo-Iya Kunmi, raised the sum of N50,000 from people and took it to Tosin’s church during service
Saheed was given the opportunity to speak to the church members about Tosin and presented the money to him publicly
A Nigerian man, Tosin, who drives an okada to make a living has been rewarded for his honesty. What amazed people was that he earlier rejected a monetary offer.
In an earlier report, a young man, Hajj-Saheed Omo-Iya Kunmi, narrated how after misplacing his mobile phone, he became confused about how to get it back.
Tosin only wanted prayers
After several calls to the mobile phone, Tosin picked it up and promised to bring it to Saheed. The bike man fulfilled his promise and only asked that the owner keeps praying for him as a way of appreciation.
On Sunday, June 19, Saheed went to Tosin’s church after he had raised some more money for him. He used the visit to speak about the man to the congregation.
Tosin rewarded publicly
“May almighty God bless Tosin and grant his desires! May he live long to fulfill his destiny. Special thanks to all my friends at home and abroad who donated to the cause. You made putting smile on someone’s face today a possibility. Thank you all!!!”
The man also thanked New Life Baptist Church, Sabo, for allowing him and his friends to address the congregation.
Below are some of the reactions:

Another Nigerian man returned money
Meanwhile, Legit earlier reported that a young Nigerian driver, Emmanuel Christoper, was praised online
for his utmost honesty in returning valuables a passenger left in his car in Abuja.
A woman known as Lara Wise who narrated his act of kindness on Facebook revealed that the man is a choir member in her church and he is a very committed person.
According to her, after Emmanuel dropped a female passenger in the federal capital, he soon realised she left behind a fat wallet in the back seat.
