A cleaner at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Ikeja, Lagos State, Charity Bassey, has turned in $6,000 to security officials at the terminal.

The cleaner, an employee of Lakewood Development Company,

was on duty at the departure wing of the airport when

she picked up the item from the floor.


She recalled that she was standing in front of the toilet when a

passenger drew her attention to something inside the toilet.

“I went in and saw the small black nylon on the floor.

It looked dirty and rough,

you won’t know it is money that was inside it”,

Guardian quoted her as saying.


“I picked it, felt some notes inside and took it to the customer care.

I was given a glove to bring out the contents and I counted

60 pieces of $100 dollar bills.


“I do my best to do a good job with clear conscience.

This is not the first time I am picking up forgotten items like wallets,

phones, small bags and even money. I have always returned them to

the frontline desk or customer care desk”.

In his reaction, Managing Director of the company, Sam Nchezor

“Some others would have picked the money and walked away,

she can’t be traced to it.


“What could only happen is to indict everybody working there,

but we thank her for her honesty, for picking up the money and

handing it over to the management of ASL.


“We are going to compensate her, give her some money and also increase her salary.

It is left for the management of ASL and Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) to reward her.

We are proud of her”.
