According to Napaul, he knows of a man who was working abroad and usually sent his mother money for safekeeping.

However, the man returned home only to find out that there is no money left. The implication means that he was back to square one. Napaul’s post reads:

“I know a guy at Owerri that hustled abroad and kept sending money to his mom to keep for him, lol blud came back & he had nothing.

“This life no get script.

“What worked for Hakimi make not work for you, Just pray for wisdom in every circumstance you find yourself in.”
