A Nigerian lady has been left devastated after saving what she believes was huge money in the box only to see about N7,000 in it months later.
According to her, she bought the savings box “kolo” in February from a local trader and had been dropping money in the box since then. Based on her calculation, the total savings in the box should be about N100,000($263).
Unfortunately, when she opened the box on Wednesday to use the saved-up money for something, she found only N7,000($18) inside.
The most confusing thing to her was that the money that she saw in the box were in 50’s and 20 naira notes instead of the N1,000 notes that she had put in the box.
There was an inscription of “Dee great shammah” at the side of the box. Hence, she feels that all her savings were taken through some sort of witchcraft, either by the seller of the box or whoever “Dee great shammah” is.
