Josephine Nchetaka Chukujama Eze has really shown the true meaning of honesty as she returned almost N14 million that was mistakenly paid into her account.

Her husband, a journalist, and lawyer, Chukujama Eze, disclosed it to News Express as he praised his wife for the virtue she exhibited.

In a letter he addressed to the media, he said that he decided to celebrate her not because it is her birthday but because she did a thing that made him very proud of her.

The husband said that the event happened on Monday, August 3, when Josephine was in a salon and her phone rang with alerts.

The mother of three did not check her phone until later. She had to call her husband immediately after she saw the R622 849.05.
