A Syrian refugee in Germany has been hailed a “hero” in Germany after returning 50,000 euros (almost 19 million naira) and bank books he discovered hidden inside a second-hand wardrobe.Instead of keeping the money, he reported his findings to the police who are now searching for the real owner of the cash
The 25-year-old man, who Germany’s Bild newspaper identified as Muhannad M, fled to the country from Homs last year and had been trying to cheaply furnish his new home in Germany.
He found the stash of cash and five bank books inside a hidden compartment built underneath one of the shelves of the cupboard.
The honest young man said he couldn’t keep the cash because of his religious beliefs.
“I am Muslim. This money I could not keep to myself. Allah would never allow it, to finance your own interests with someone else’s property.”
Police are now trying to determine the rightful owner of the cash.
He could have easily kept the cash especially as he is a refugee, but he chose the honest way out.
Folks, will you do the same if you were in his shoes?
