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.
