Halogen Securities Limited thursday rewarded their two security guards – Achi Daniel and Francis Emepueaku with N250, 000 each.
The duo had on August 18, 2018 found and returned a bag containing dollars and other valuables items to the owner, a lady who just arrived Nigeria from the United States.
The security firm commended them for their honesty and exemplary conduct and offered them scholarships that would enable them to study and acquire diploma in Security Management.
Group Managing Director of Halogen Securities Limited, Wale Olaoye announced the rewards at an occasion held at Halogen office in Ikeja, Lagos.
Olaoye said the action of the Halogen guards is a pointer that light can come out of Nigeria, and appealed to other professionals to emulate the high level of integrity demonstrated by Achi and Emepueaku.
Commending the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) , Olaoye said, “today, what we may see as inconsequential has caught global attention. It is work-in-progress and we are in the pursuit of excellence. If FAAN didn’t give opportunities to Nigerians who have caught their teeth in their professional endeavors, we will not be celebrating what we are celebrating today”.
He pointed out that if the two Halogen guards could make this positive impact at this level, then Nigeria must have not wasted that capability to make change.
He stressed that Halogen has a system that supports and monitors its personnel wherever they may be, since the last 26 years.
In his remark, the Managing Director of FAAN, who represented by the FAAN’s Director, Engineering Services, Salisu Daura, said FAAN has a catalogue of feedback from elated airport users who have expressed their joy and appreciation for what they are doing at the airport.
“Today is another of such days, as two members of staff of Halogen Securities Limited, Francis Emepueaku and Achi Daniel have also distinguished themselves via the display of acts of honesty and exemplary conduct by retrieving, contacting and handing over a hand bag full of valuables that was forgotten at the multi storey car park to the owner.”
