After handing it over to Ontario Lottery and Gaming to prove its authenticity, the couple were awarded their money which they say will go to travel and helping out their four children and five grandchildren.
As for the churchgoer who found the ticket, the Nosirus have only gratitude.
“I just want to say thank you,” Abiola Nosiru said. No word on if the honest churchgoer will be further rewarded.
Mrs. Nosiru did have some advice for anyone fortunate enough to be in her position:
““Please keep your ticket in a safe place and watch it all night,” she told Ontario’s National Post. “And sign it. And if you can tape it to your body like my husband did on that Saturday …. He said whoever wants to take this ticket has to kill me.”
