Honest secondary school student gets cash reward of N340,000 for returning lost phone to owner in Port Harcourt

A Senior Secondary school student identified as Philemon Igbokwe has been showered with cash gifts for his rare feat of honesty by returning a lost phone to the owner in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

A lawyer, Emma Okah, who disclosed this on Facebook on Sunday, April 11, said the boy saw the mobile phone forgotten by a wedding guest in the restroom of an event centre.

Mr Okah gave the boy a cash reward of N50,000 while two other guests handed him $500 and N50,000. In total, the honest student went home with N340,000. Read his post below:

The boy with me in this photograph is Master Philemon Igbokwe. He is a student of Federal Government College, Rumuokoro, PH, Rivers State. He has no phone, even the cheapest.

Yesterday, I chaired the wedding event of Mr. Victor Emma Woke from Elele Town and his wife Joy from Eleme at Exquisite Event Centre, (Eliozu), G.U. Ake Road, PH.

Philemon demonstrated a rare feat of honesty by picking and returning a new android phone forgotten by its owner in the restroom. The MC announced this at the event and people were excited to see such show of honesty from a young boy in a country riddled with vices.

I announced a cash reward of N50,000. while Hon Josiah Olu did N50,000 and Co-Chairman Dr John Bosco – $500. By this, Philemon Igbokwe will go home with N340,000 for returning a phone which if sold as a stolen item, would not make N40,000.

I am proud to Congratulate Philemon and his parents for the example he has shown that there are still young ones with integrity in our country. I pray God to uphold Philemon and his family in greatness, honour and success in life.
