Man returns missing wallet to owner 17 months after with money intact
“The strangest thing happened [on Tuesday]. I lost my wallet over a year ago and [on Tuesday]…as I tried to board a troski at Lapaz, a gentleman just tapped me on the shoulder and told me he had my wallet. [The] Guy went on to describe it and it’s contents. I was just shocked.” “The guy recognised me from my Facebook profile picture. Apparently, he’s been messaging me since February 2018 but I haven’t opened Facebook in forever. My 80 cedis was still in the wallet,” Kwame posted on Twitter.
“Good people exist.” This could possibly be the best phrase to describe an incredible experience a Twitter user shared on his timeline after he found a wallet 17 months after he lost it under a bizarre circumstance.
According to Gideon Kwame Nyamekye who uses the handle @kwame_kay, he lost his wallet a year ago and as fate would have it, he retrieved it through a good Samaritan on Tuesday in a very interesting way that left him and other social media users gobsmacked.
After losing his wallet, a good Samaritan by name Walid Abi-Karim found the wallet and has on numerous occasions been trying to reach out to the owner on Facebook.
Kwame’s inactivity on Facebook delayed the early retrieval of his wallet.
He had GHc80, and his ID cards still intact when the wallet was returned to him.
In an interview with Kwame, he explained that he was extremely delighted to have found his wallet again, especially under such a rare circumstance.
He was also grateful to the young man who found his wallet.
In an interview with citinewsroom.com, the good Samaritan, Walid Abi-Karam who found the wallet disclosed that he returned the wallet because he wants the world to know that honest people still exist.
Walid also called on the public to always ensure they return missing items to their owners or ensure they report it to the police for the necessary action to be taken.
