“Only very few people can actually be honest enough to acknowledge an error in transfer and do the needful by sending the money back to the sender. But with d things I read online everyday majority of Nigerians are opportunists and do not fall into the category of honest people… How can some people go to bed to sleep knowing d kind of thing they did to their fellow human being..
“This kind of insensitive na wao, nobody is above mistake, mistake hv no master and no one is perfect…don’t make them pay for their carelessness. I have a lot of problems I could hv solve with this money but I’m not a thief. I remembered when growing up, U return what does not belong to u else d canning no go get part 2 from my mum….and again i don’t want to mess up my glorious future.. So in this present economy, pls check and re-check before sending or transferring money. People are desperate now couple with the hardship…”
Nkili also shared screenshots of how the money was transferred as many Nigerians on the social media platform doubted her.
