Ibrahim Ogbanago, a security guard employed by a UBA branch in Ikeja, Lagos State, rose to attention in 2016 after returning $10,000 in cash.
Following the over $30,000 donation given to him years ago, there are rumours that Ibrahim is now a prosperous businessman, and subsequent images that have appeared online demonstrate how wonderfully his life has turned out.
Recall The CEO of the bank, Tony Elumelu, commended him for his honesty.
The business tycoon expressed his admiration for the security guard for his honesty, which demonstrated that there are still good guys in the world. He posted the following on Instagram: “When I heard about this story, I knew I had to meet the man who despite facing rising petrol & transportation prices and “tomato ebola” returned such a huge sum of money without recourse to himself.
It was a pleasant surprise to hear him tell this story and about how he came to be in the board room with us. Even more surprising was hearing him speak about his passion for governance and integrity in leadership.
“Mohammed Ibrahim Ogbanago is an exemplary ambassador of the UBA spirit and it was fulfilling to meet and reward him for his conduct.
The @UBAGroup management is proud to have this caliber of staff at all levels. Congratulations to Mohammed and keep up the good work”
Prior to the incident, his monthly pay was N30,000. Nevertheless, because of the $30k in donations he received from kind-hearted Nigerians, he is now a successful employer of labour in Kogi state.
Ogbanago was one of 437 people nominated for 2022 National Honors Awards. They received the Federal Republic Medal II (FRM II).
