The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is set to reward one of its personnel, Aircraftman (ACM) Bashir Umar, who found and returned the sum of 37,000 Euros to Alhaji Ahmad, the owner of the lost money, Igbere TV reports.
Igbere TV reports that ACM Bashir found the money in a parcel, while on routine patrol with some of his colleagues, at the Hajj Camp Market in Kano State on Tuesday, July 16, 2019.
Bashir, who is a member of the NAF Mobile Air Defence Team (MADT), had been deployed for airport security duties on that day, when he found the parcel.
Igbere TV gathered that a phone number was on the parcel which the Airman called and eventually handed over the package to the owner.
In a statement sent to Igbere TV by NAF’s Spokesman, Ibikunle Daramola, he noted that the reward is a way to encourage other personnel to uphold such values.
“Consequently, the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, has directed the Chief of Administration at the Headquarters NAF, Air Vice Marshal Kingsley Lar, to immediately come up with modalities to reward the airman so as to encourage other personnel of the Service to continue to embody attitudes and behaviours that reflect NAF’s core values of Integrity, Excellence and Service Delivery”, the statement read.
