Although, some felt the mechanic deserved more than what he got.
“I think Mr Timothy deserves more than this, even if it’s 10%…so that if something like this happens ever again, he will still have the mind to do good instead of bad..what if he doesn’t have a car but he repairs cars as a mechanic. Well, his reward is from God not man”, a Twitter user, Anabel Orakwue said.
