Ekuma Jeremiah, the Lagos hawker caught in a viral video giving out money to inmates in a Correctional Service van in Ajah, has received a letter of scholarship from businessman and socialite Obi Cubana.
Cubana, on his Instagram page, disclosed that one Mr & Mrs Afuah, based in Canada, has placed Jeremiah on a N100,000 monthly salary till he finishes his education.
The Nation reports Jeremiah was caught on camera in the Ajah area of Lagos last week giving money to inmates being transported to prison in a Nigerian Correctional Service van.
In the seven-second video, the hawker is seen carrying a crate of bottled water on his head while giving out some of the money he had made.
His gesture earned widespread commendation from many Nigerians.
