High drama as beggars reject old currency in Kaduna


It was high drama at the popular Kano-road in Kaduna on Wednesday, when some group of beggars rejected old 1,000 naira notes gifted them by a good Samaritan.

A report by Daily Post said that a young man was accosted by three beggars on wheelchairs as he alighted from a bus.

Realising that they were asking for handouts, the man took a N1000 note from his wallet and stretched it towards the most senior beggar among the three.

However, in a rather hilarious reaction, the beggars looked at ine another, swivelled their wheelchairs around and moved away from the young man, rejecting his offer.

Speaking to onlookers, the young man who identified himself as Caleb, said “they (beggars), came to me, asking for alms. I gave them what I had on me but they rejected it.”

The young man explained that he only had the old currency notes and had not been able to get the new ones despite his efforts.
