A Nigerian mechanic who goes by the name Mr. Timothy has refunded 10.8 million naira that was inadvertently sent to his bank account.

After the video went viral, many people on Twitter praised Timothy for his honest and ethical behaviour in returning the money, while others criticized him for his decision to do so.

Kate Henshaw, a well-known actress in the Nigerian film industry, is one of the people who have praised the mechanic for exhibiting genuine honesty and principle in the face of the challenges and temptations that are prevalent in Nigeria.

“God bless Mr Timothy, who returned N10.8M naira that was mistakenly transferred to him. You will not lack, favour, peace and long life,” Henshaw tweeted in her reaction to the video.

A few other people also joined Henshaw in praising Timothy for returning the money.

He is a Car Mechanic, He could have Absconded with the Money, he could have squandered it! But he choose to be Honest!

Even in the face of poverty he chose peace of mind and happiness❤️.

God bless you Mr Timothy!

I think Mr Timothy deserves more than this, even if it’s 10%…so that if something like this happens ever again, he will still have the mind to do good instead of bad..what if he doesn’t have a car but he repairs cars as a mechanic. Well his reward is from God not man
