Man Returns Over Ghc100,000, and Other items found in a Car

Dela Anim, a man who found an amount of GHc 100,000 in a car, he boarded from Labadi to Obossey-Okai in the Greater Accra Region has returned the money to a media house in search of the owner.

The amount of money was filled in a polythene bag and left behind by the rightful owner in the back seat of the car where it was discovered by Dela Anim.

According to him, he did not trust the drive to leave the money in his possession but rather did the needful by finding the owner of the money.

That informed his decision to report the money to Adom FM of it to be announced for the perusal of the owner.

He says he was raised as a Christian by his mother with a doctrine of not owning what does not belong to you, and that has been a guide for him and other siblings of his throughout their life journey.

He accounted that, he used to own a transport business but have not been operational for some time now and he’d resorted to help from friends and loved ones to survive.

“I owned a transport business but it has collapsed so I’m unemployed and depend on the benevolence of my family to survive but growing up as a Christian and Presbyterian, my parents taught me not to take what is not mine and that has guided my siblings and I throughout life,” He said.

 Even though financial times are undoubtedly more difficult than they ever were, the unemployed man did not look the other way but showed what a kind and generous person he is.

“I live at Nungua and I had to come to Labadi. From there, I was going to visit someone at Abossey-Okai. So, I took a car to Nima Mobil to take care of something. From there, I picked another taxi towards Abossey-Okai. But upon getting to Silvercup (Kokomlemle), I saw that there was a blue-black polythene bag there. I opened it and realised there was money in it.

“Initially, I wanted to give it to the driver, but I wasn’t sure about that driver whether he would safely deliver it, so, I thought it wise to come here myself… I even got here before we counted it. When I found it, I didn’t touch it. So, I came to the reception and the lady helped me count,” he said.

A name, Esther Sackey, was written on an ID card that was discovered among the items, and the station is now searching for anyone who might be this person.
