“I Need to Invest It”: Nigerian Lady Flaunts Foreign Currencies She Found in Her Okrika Bag, Video Causes Stir
A Nigerian thrift trader has excitedly shown off the money she found in a bag she was going to sell to someone
In pouches of the bag, she found denominations of the Chinese currency Yuan which was over N60k
Showcasing the money, she jocularly said she had begun researching into the cost of houses and would invest the cash
A Nigerian lady has flaunted the foreign currencies she found in an okrika (bale or thrift) bag she bought.
According to the thrift trader, the bag had already spent two days with the dry cleaner and was to be sold.
It was at the point of doing a video to showcase it to a potential customer that she found the Chinese currencies in its pockets.
She counted three 100 yuan bills and a 50 bill, which amounted to N70k. The excited lady flaunted the cash, joking that she had begun pricing house and may invest the money.
She said it is quite surprising that such an amount would be found in this economy. The lady noted that it is a throwback and not a recent discovery. She said she gave it to a neighbour’s daughter the last time she found such.
Her TikTok post reads:
“It’s throwback Thursday and I’m throwing it back to when I found money in my thrift find. this is my third time finding cash and I remember the first time I found money I didn’t take it serious I dash my neighbor, my daughter not until someone called my attention that I just gave away 8k since that day anything I find in my thrift find I try to find our before discarding it sha I want to believe this is a way of Allah and my hustle paying back for the days I’ve run short and lost money in this business. Hopefully I’ll share a video of some of the things I thrifted but couldn’t even sell (my losses).”

Nigerian woman returns N14.9m she found inside chairs
Meanwhile, WOTHAPPEN previously reported that a Nigerian woman had returned N14.9 million she found inside chairs.
The honest Nigerian woman was said to have moved into a new home in California and was checking on Craigslist for new furniture to buy.
She found out that there was a family who wanted to give out furniture belonging to a late relative. She picked up the chairs and had them delivered to her new home. When the chairs arrived, she was checking them out when she found a huge sum stashed in one of them.
She made contact with the kind family that gave them the chairs and had the money returned.
