Nigerian Tissue Seller in Spain Returns Misplaced Briefcase Containing €16,000




A Nigerian tissue seller who is based in Spain has made headlines for his honesty, after he returned a forgotten brief case containing €16,000, which had fallen off the roof of a car.

Peter Angelina, 35, is the individual being lauded as a good Samaritan for his actions.

According to Telegraph UK, he was selling packets of paper handkerchiefs at his usual roadside spot, on December 3rd, when he noticed that a briefcase had been left on the roof of a car. When the motorist pulled away, the briefcase fell to the ground.

Angelina then tried to stopped the driver, but was unable to do so. He then took the briefcase to the police station so authorities could assist in tracking down the owner – which they were eventually able to do. The owner was a 42-year-old businessman from Seville.

Reports state that “the case was discovered to contain €3,150 in cash and six cheques with a combined value of €13,000 as well as some documents and a mobile telephone.”

As a reward for his honesty, the businessman gave him €100.

“People say I could have kept the money and then thrown the briefcase away but I am not like that, and God wouldn’t have liked that… I am not crazy, I am a good man,” he said.

Angelina, reportedly trained as a doctor in his native country, Nigeria. However; his qualifications are not recognized in Europe.

Though his act is good.. But, Angelina is not Nigerian.. and I have never ever heard a Nigerian with all our dedication and dignity.. being trained as a doctor back home and selling tissue overseas.. Just saying and raising my eyebrows at the same time..

    BN, u didn’t complete d story. Mr Peter is currently running a program in one of Universities in Spain since 5 yrs to enable be a Certified Trained Doctor there. He only sells tissue papers to support himself. Mr Peter Angelina, ur selfless Samaritan gesture is just a stepping stone to unlimited favours and blessings from God. U deserve an honour.
