According to reports, Malam Kiri reported himself to the authorities afer he found the money in a bag beside the road while on transit from Damaturu to Gashua.

It was gathered that the old hardworking driver depends only on commercial driving as his means of livelihood with one wife, six children and two elderly dependents.

Malam Kiri sometimes finds it very difficult to afford three square meals for his family and always unable to provide for his children’s education.

But despite his financial challenges, Kari chose to remain an honest man even when he had the opportunity to enrich himself fraudulently.

It was in recognition of this rare sterling quality that Network for Yobe Civil Society Organisations, (NYCSO), identified Malam Kiri and presented to him an Award of Excellence as “AMBASSADOR OF HONESTY AND CONTENTMENT”.

Similarly, Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni has in the interim provided cash support and food items to sustain Mal. Kiri’s household for at least 6 months for his rare show of honesty and integrity.

The cash support and food palliatives were handed over to Kiri through the Northeast Development Commission, Yobe State Focal Person/Coordinator, Dr. Ali Ibrahim Abbas on behalf of the Governor.

This is coming barely three days after a woman identified as Josephine Nchetaka Chukwujama-Eze was rewarded with N1 million after she refunded the N13 million mistakenly paid into her bank account in Enugu State.
