Meanwhile, earlier reported that a banker known as Ayomide Babalola-Mr Flow on Facebook shared how he helped a security man, Idris, get a better job.

He added that the first thing that drew him to the man was the way he always appeared smart and his signature military-like salute.

A few months after they met, Idris requested to see Babalola as he informed him that he is an OND holder and is about to finish his university degree programme, which he was running on a part-time basis.

Four years after in 2019 as one of the bank workers was promoted to a higher role and moved to another department, Idris came calling, saying that he is qualified for the position the person just left.

The man said that his words moved him as he recalled that one of the initiatives he introduced at the bank was to make sure that all security guards were part of all daily meetings.
