Ms Josephine Ugwu, the cleaner who returned N12 million found at the Airport toilet, has on Thursday in Lagos been honoured by the Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC), Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) Division.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Airport Command, Mr Haminu Makama, presented a plaque and a certificate to her on behalf of the PCRC members.
If we recall, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that Ugwu, a cleaner with a concessionaire of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Patovilki Industrial Cleaning, returned the money on Feb. 16.
The patriotic display of the woman, who was on a salary of N7, 000 per month as at the time of the incident, attracted commendations across the country.
Responding, Egwu said that it was not the first time she was returning money within the Airport vicinity, as she recalled that some time ago, she returned N600,000 left at the airport toilet and later, another sum of N3 million was equally returned.
She expressed appreciation to the PCRC for recognising her good behaviour and promised that she would continue to display honesty in all her deeds. (NAN)
