Vicky Umodu, a Nigerian woman who lives in San Bernardino California has shown an exemplary display of honesty after she returned N14.9m she found in a sofa.

She found out that there is a family who wants to give out furniture belonging to a late relative.

She picked up the chairs and had them delivered to her new home. When the chairs arrived, she was checking them out when she found a huge sum stashed in one of them.

Umodu said:

“I just moved in, and I don’t have anything in my house. I was so excited, so we picked it up and brought it in.

‘I was just telling my son, “Come, come, come!” I was screaming, “This is money! I need to call the guy!”’

She returns the money

They made contacts with the kind family that gave them the chairs and had the money returned. She said:

‘God has been kind to me and my children. They’re all alive and well. I have three beautiful grandchildren, so what can I ever ask from God?’
