I Declined 10% Of Money I Found In Japan – Ikenna Nweke

Published by on June 29th, 2020.


News
IKENNA Nweke, a Nigerian living and working in Tsukuba, Japan, who was recently celebrated for returning a lost wallet containing huge sums of money as well as a credit card to its owner through the police has revealed why he declined 10 per cent of the money he found.

Nweke in an interview with the ICIR stated that he declined the 10 percent offered him by the Japanese police for returning the valuables because he is a devoted Christian raised by responsible parents.

“The police told me that according to Japanese law, that I was entitled to 10% of the money found inside the wallet but I declined, I told him that there was no need for that because I was raised by responsible parents, and that I am also a Christian,” he said.

Nweke who is a PhD student at the University of Tsukuba, Japan, and also a Teaching Assistant in the same university recounted how he saw the wallet while going home from the University

“I was going home from the University, I decided to get my wife her favorite kebab, as I was climbing the staircase around Tsukuba centre, I noticed something on the ground,”

“As I drew closer, I saw that it was a wallet. When I opened it, I saw a huge sum of money, a credit card, and other valuables,” Nweke narrated to The ICIR.

The lost wallet

Nweke who hails from Amauzari in Isiala Mbano Local Government Area, Imo State, said he was born and raised in Okpoko, Onitsha, Anambra State, but relocated to Japan in 2013 through a Japanese government sponsored scholarship program.

He noted that the owner of the wallet, after getting it back from the police has also called him to express his gratitude.

Nweke said he was amazed to receive a letter from the Ibaraki/Tsukuba police, expressing their gratitude towards his incredible and selfless behavior.

When asked why he decided to return the money instead of taking it away, Nweke told the ICIR that he is a devoted Christian, who is committed to change the narratives and unprintable names given to Nigerians in Japan and other countries abroad.

The commendation letter sent to Mr Nweke by the Japanese police

“Not every Nigerian is criminal-minded, there are a lot of Nigerians abroad working so hard to erase the bad name given to “us” by the criminal few,” he noted

Meanwhile, the Chairman /CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa has commended Mr Ikenna Nweke for his honest and patriotic attitude.

Abike gave the commendation in a statement signed by Mr Gabriel Odu of the Media, Public Relations and Protocol Unit of NIDCOM on Sunday in Abuja.

She said, “it is indeed a great opportunity to celebrate you. This is what Nigeria is about. All the negative information you tend to hear about are far out stripped by the positive information that are hidden and not told and these are the likes of people like Mr lkenna. You have portrayed the image of Nigerians in the Diaspora as unique, honest and cultured set of immigrants.”

      Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

      Together with every little thing that seems to be developing inside this particular subject material, all your opinions are generally rather refreshing. Nonetheless, I appologize, because I can not subscribe to your entire strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to everyone that your remarks are generally not totally rationalized and in simple fact you are your self not really thoroughly certain of your argument. In any case I did appreciate reading it.

      Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

      I was just searching for this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.
