Below are pictures of the gateman who has been labelled a hero by Nigerians following his selfless gesture towards his community in Birniwa local government area of Jigawa state.
It was gathered that the gateman identified as Musa Usman (in light blue attire) had served his Indian boss, Mr. V. Verghese, for 25 years and he was planning to leave his job to finally spend time with his family in Giljimmi, a Fulani settlement in Jigawa state.
To appreciate Usman’s services, Verghese decided to build a house for him. However, the offer was turned down. Instead, the kind gateman asked his boss to build a borehole for his community because there was shortage of water in his village and people had to go a long distance in search of clean water.
Usman who reportedly lives in a thatched house in his village – is said to have expressed no regret at turning down the offer of a new house just so his people can have clean water to drink.
