However, when he got to the park, he was told that the transport fare to return home was N35K

He did a quick calculation in his head and found out that his to-and-fro transportation fare would be N70K.

The soldier revealed that his salary for that month was just N50K.

He concluded that it would be better he just returned to the bush in Maiduguri as he can’t afford the transport fare.
