One of the two airport security men praised by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari for returning a bag full of cash and valuables says he was “mocked” by his friends for his honesty.

President Buhari commended junior security guard Achi Daniel and his supervisor Francis Emepueaku for being “good, honest Nigerians” by handing back the money to a traveler at the international airport in the commercial capital, Lagos.

During a ceremony honoring the men, Mr. Daniel told online newspaper Sahara Reporters that, it was not the first time he has returned valuables while on duty and was not discouraged by the mocking.

“If the money was in multi-millions of foreign currencies I would still have returned it,” Mr Daniel told Sahara Reporters.

He said on returning the bag, its owners tried to give them money as thanks, which he and Mr. Emepueaku rejected as they “were just doing their job”.

“No amount of money would make me to take what doesn’t belong to me,” he added.

Both men have been awarded by their security company with education scholarships worth 250,000 Naira ($686, £534)
