Miss Samson Omolabake, an SS 2 student of Muslim high school senior, Sagamu, returned back a purse filled with cash and ATM cards she found on the floor to FCMB


A great event happened on May 16th,2017 in Remo Land specifically in Sagamu when Miss Samson Omolabake, Nineteen years of age, a student of Muslim High School Senior Secondary School 2 (Art) located at Lateefat Ogunkoya Avenue, Sabo was on her way home after the close of the school saw a purse filled with money and ATM cards on the road at ever busy road in Isale Oko around 2:25 pm. She picked it up and opened the purse and saw that there was money and ATM cards inside the purse. She discovered that the ATM is for First City Monument Bank( FCMB). She took the purse back immediately to the branch of the Bank which is at Akarigbo Road after First Bank Plc Sagamu.

When she got there, she told them what happened and requested that they should help her to trace the owner of the purse and should please call her so that she can hand over the purse over to the owner in person. The management did as she requested and called the owner to come over to the banking hall. The owner of the purse, Mrs Awofeso was shocked to hear what happened, she checked her money and confirmed that Eighteen thousand Naira inside the purse was intact and all her documents were intact.

This prompted the FCMB Branch Manager,Mr Omotara to write a letter of commendation on behalf of the Bank and brought it to her school on May 17th,2017. When the Principal of the School was contacted, Mr Oyenuga David, to ask him about who the student is in school, he said that, she is an indigent student and highly responsible. Mrs Yetunde Sodiya Isikalu the Vice Principal Academics stated that , Samson Omolabake is always neat and she has never be reported for any misbehaviour acts. Her Class Teacher, Mrs Ajilore said she is a responsible girl and ever ready to learn.

With this kind of student, we as teachers, the nation builders have a strong hope that if we can see these kind of faithful students, then our future is bright. Hope our students can learn from this girl act of honesty. She defied temptations and did the right thing. Indeed honesty is the best policy.
