The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has concluded plans to reward one of its personnel, Bashir Umar, who found the sum of 37,000 Euros and returned it to its owner.

Umar, who is an aircraftman and a member of the NAF Mobile Air Defence Team deployed to Kano airport for security duties.

According to a statement issued by the spokesman of the Nigeria Air force, Ibikunle Daramola, Mr. Umar, was on routine patrol with his colleagues when he found a parcel containing the lost money at the Hajj Camp Market in Kano on Tuesday.

He was said to have put a call through to the owner of the parcel, simply identified as Ahmad, with a telephone number which was written on the parcel. He eventually returned the money when Ahmad showed up for it.

“The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, has directed the Chief of Administration at the Headquarters NAF, Air Marshal Kingsley Lar, to immediately come up with modalities to reward the airman so as to encourage other personnel of the Service to continue to embody attitudes and behaviours that reflect NAF’s core values of integrity, excellence and service delivery,” Mr Daramola, an air commodore, said in the statement.
