The latest of such rewards was the presentation of a cheque of N680,000, by the Monday Ubani Foundation, run by renowned lawyer and human rights activist.

The lawyer had promised to take up her case and promised to raise 10% of the money for the lady and he presented an elated Ugwu with the cheque.

Ugwu who said she would invest the money in business, said:

"I'm thinking of investing the money in the sales and distribution of Ugwu leaves since my surname is Ugwu."

Can you beat that?
