The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is set to reward Bashir Umar, an Aircraftman, who found and returned a large sum of money to the owner, last Tuesday, in Kano.

NAF spokesman, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, in a statement, late Sunday, said the Chief of the Air Staff, 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.”

Umar, found and returned the sum of 37,000 Euros to Alhaji Ahmad, the owner of the lost money, at a Hajj Camp Market in Kano where he works as a member of the NAF Mobile Air Defence Team (MADT) deployed for airport security duties.

He was said to have found the amount while on routine patrol with some of his colleague.  Vanguard

The full statement read:

“The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is set to reward one of its personnel, Aircraftman (ACM) Bashir Umar, who found and returned the sum of 37,000 Euros to Alhaji Ahmad, the owner of the lost money.

“The incident occured at the Hajj Camp Market in Kano on Tuesday 16 July 2019, when ACM Bashir, who is a member of the NAF Mobile Air Defence Team (MADT) deployed for airport security duties, while on routine patrol with some of his colleagues, found the money in a parcel.

“Fortunately, there was a phone number on the parcel which the Airman called, and eventually handed over the package to the owner.

“Consequently, 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.”
