The incident was said to have happened on Monday, August 3, when Josephine was in a salon and her phone rang with credit alerts of N13,946,400.

After some search with her husband, they reported the transaction to the bank after realizing that Sankiya Global Investment Ltd, a private company based in Lagos Island, mistakenly authorised the payment into Josephine’s bank account.

The mother of three said that when some people heard about it, they condemned them for being naïve and not ‘smart’ enough. The husband said that bank officials were really appreciative of his wife’s act of goodness.

In appreciation of the outstanding and exemplary honesty she displayed in returning the money, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, on Tuesday, rewarded Mrs. Chukwujama-Eze with a cash of one million naira.

The cash reward was announced by the State Commissioner for Gender Affairs and Social Development, Hon. Princess Peace Nnaji, after a closed-door meeting with the woman in her office.

Mrs. Chukwujama-Eze, a teacher with a mission school in Enugu, is married to Barr. Chukwujama Eze, an indigene of Enugu Ezike, in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Speaking after the meeting, Hon. Nnaji commended the woman for being a good ambassador of Enugu State, stressing that “this is the kind of culture we are inculcating in all our women, men, young boys and girls”.

“What we are witnessing today is heartwarming and thought provoking. It is something memorable and substantial. This is a woman, Mrs. Josephine Chukwujama-Eze, who to the greatest chagrin of so many people had the sum of N13,946,400.00, mistakenly credited to her Bank Account. And immediately she saw it, she quickly alerted her husband and they went to the bank and returned the money to the rightful owner.

“We all know that times are hard these days, especially with the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic. It is not that she is very comfortable; she is a teacher in a mission school and look at what she has done. This is a real character and Enugu State Government wants to appreciate her for what she has done. His Excellency, Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has directed that she should be rewarded with the sum of one million naira”, Nnaji said.
