He said, “On the 19th of June 2020, while I was going home from the university, I decided to get my wife her favorite kebab. As I was climbing the staircase around Tsukuba center, I noticed something on the ground.

“As I drew closer, I saw that it was a wallet. When I opened it, I saw a huge sum of money, a credit card, and other valuables.

“I immediately reported to the police. One of the officers was surprised and asked me why I did not take the money. I told him that there was no need for that because I was raised by responsible parents, and that I am also a Christian.

Letter from Japanese Police

“They expressed their gratitude towards my incredible and selfless behavior.
Not every Nigerian is criminal-minded. There are a lot of Nigerians abroad working so hard to erase the bad name given to “us” by the criminal few.” Nweke noted.

In an acknowledgment note, the President General of Nigerian Union in Japan, Nnaji Kennedy Fintan said

“Indeed you are a true Nigerian. People who condemn other countries because of few bad individuals are shortsighted. You have proved to them that we have legions of goodwill. Congratulations for the indelible mark set!

“Let’s together build an institution that will be timeless in its relevance, for ourselves and for the future generations world over.
Nnaji Kennedy Fintan
President General,
Nigerian Union Japan”
