A female pilgrim has returned a lost Basic Travel Allowance (BTA) of $750 (about N263,000) found in an unmarked envelope to Hauwa Musa, another female pilgrim from Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Amina Abdullahi Gele, a pilgrim from Igabi Local Government, who found the BTA, in an interview with Daily Trust, said the envelope was left in the hotels bathroom in Medina.

“I found it in an unmarked envelope and it was a difficult task identifying the owner after a room to room enquiry, I became convinced that Hauwa is the owner,” she said.

Hauwa, who expressed shock over the development, said “Honestly I had given up on the money after searching everywhere. I never imagined there are God fearing people like Hajia Amina, because there was no form of identification on the envelope.”
