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 occurred at the Hajj Camp Market in Kano on Tuesday, July 16, 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, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola,
Director of Public Relations and Information Nigerian Air Force, who disclosed this in a release, said.
According to him, CAS reward for the airman is 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.
