Police hand over N9.9m to owner in Kano

The Police Command in Kano says it has handed over about N9.9 million wrongly transferred to a POS operator to the rightful owner in the Dawanau Grain International market in the Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of the state.

This is contained in a statement by the Command Public Relations Officer, SP Abdullahi Kiyawa, in Kano on Thursday.

He said a POS operator reported to the police that he  realised that one of his customers, who is yet to be identified, wrongly transferred N10 million instead of N10,000.

Kiyawa explained that on receipt of the report, the Commissioner of Police, Usaini Gumel, directed a discreet investigation with a view to identifying the rightful owner in order to return the money to him.

He said that it took the police investigation team three months to identify the original owner of the huge amount.

“On March 14, the investigation was concluded as a sequel to the uncovering of the identity of the rightful owner, who happened to be a trader at the famous Dawanau Grains Market located in Dawakin Tofa.

“The owner (name withheld) commended the POS operator and the police for their efforts, and out of joy, he presented a cash gift of N500,000 to the POS operator.

“He also appreciated the commissioner for the show of honesty and integrity by the police, saying this was a demonstration of exemplary leadership, he said.( NAN)
