William Okogbue, a security guard, has been rewarded by his company, Hogan Guards Limited, for returning the sum of $10,000 (N3.6 million) lost by an Ecobank customer.
While on duty at an Abuja branch of the bank in July, the 46-year-old found a bag in the banking hall and found $10,000 inside.
He said he took the bag to the toilet to count the money before he decided to hand it in to the bank’s customer service manager who later handed it back to the customer who came looking for his lost bag.

During a programme in Lagos on Thursday, August 23, 2019, Hogan rewarded Okogbue with a permanent appointment.
While speaking, Okogbue said he has worked in Ecobank for almost ten years and that he simply did what he was trained to do despite the temptation.
He said, “I am not rich but those values have been put in me. If I had taken the money, I will be in problem, Hogan Guard, Ecobank will also be in problem.
“When I picked the money, I took the money to the toilet, checked if it was real or fake. I said God, is this a temptation or what. I prayed to God.
“One part of me was telling me to take the money and run, another said I should return it. I was inside the toilet for almost one hour.
“Now, I have been given a letter of appointment as a full staff; Ecobank gave me a letter of recommendation. I feel good about it.”
He said he’s unconcerned by social media comments from people who said he should have kept the money, and advised others to not take what doesn’t belong to them.

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
