A Police officer in Osun State, Inspector Sheu Saliu has displayed uncommon integrity by returning over N200,000 misplaced by a female trader in the state.
The trader, a palm oil merchant, Mrs Bolarinwa Iyalode said she lost the money while on a commercial motorcycle from Sekona to Akoda road in the state.
Eyewitnesses account revealed that Iyalode got to discover that she had misplaced her money when she got to Akoda and started tracing it back to Sekona.
After about an hour of searching for the lost sum along the Gbongan-Ibadan road, Iyalode was said to raised the alarm of the missing money at Sekona before Inspector Saliu, attached to the Police Response Unit, said he found it.
