      aint that the truth, he is clearly mocking Nigeria and the 419s , there is no friendship here or there and if he likes to carry on this way, one day he will surely lose more than that said 10K.

    Chai, how foolish can people get? What does he mean by friend when he does not even have a last name? He is not even reading his own tweet, which would read something like “Can anyone help me locate my friend Andrew in Sydney”? Na wa for some of these oyibo people sef

    BN, it sounds to me like the Aussie is taking a sarcastic jibe at Nigeria being the perceived international home of online fraudsters. If he really had a “friend” he gave “$10K” to, why would he go on twitter to find out about “Oghenekohwo’s” well-being (that’s like me going on twitter to ask about a man named “Pat” who I loaned money, that lives in Ireland )?

    “I’m going to give it a few more days and see if he responds. If he does, I can send another 5K pls respond”. Definitely sounds like an idiotic joke…. imagine the outcry from his kinfolk if Nigerians were making silly jokes about the Australians who died on the still-unfound MH370 plane.

    Aussies are known to throw jibes at Nigerians. The man is not being duped. He is only having fun with Nigeria’s misery. By the way, a lot of Australians have fallen victim to 419ers. So it is not uncommon to see or hear such statements made against Nigerians.
    The man, therefore, is not duped rather he is just being silly.

    On the contrary the silly guy has not sent money to anyone and obviously taking a p thanks to our very good scam history. It is really annoying how people take a sensitive matter like Ebola as a joke. It is even more worrisome we Nigerians feel it is a joke sending false informations on facts especially treatment. If this thing gets out of hands it can actually mess us up in so many ways especially Economically! The Stigma is not what money can wash away. All our Happy Celebrities gallivanting round the world would have to stay back home and their careers may just go down the drain . We like to Party in this country called Nigeria so the avenues to spread is just unimaginable. Our Health System is so wack! Many DOCTORS will so go down if care is not taken. I CANNOT CRY OVER ANY OF MY FRIENDS GOD HELP US! Our Contact tracing is totally Zero. The Symptoms are close to the symptoms of Malaria so so many people will die and spread the Ebola due to ignorance. Some Malaria cases left untreated due to fear ! This is actually the worse thing that can hit us right now! 1970s was still close to independence so I am sure the health system Oyinbos left for us was way better than what it is now. Back to this FOOL that wrote this crap! I do not blame you at all! But I will not let you go! You are so lucky I am not on twitter would have gladly TORN you into pieces and I hope I have like minds like me that would do it on my behalf

    Just a few people saw through this guy’s sarcastic remark!!
    I still don’t see why people have not shut him up already. He is a bloody racist! He is simply making fun of Nigeria and the Ebola situation. I don’t see why twitter has not blog his account, or isn’t that what they do to racist comments?
    Come tell me, Mr Andrew, are you sure your forefathers, the Aboriginals of Australia, were not the ones that birthed this deadly disease? were they not the ones who historically, slept with monkeys and gave birth to Monkey-looking humans? is it because you are lucky to have been mixed with other races over the generations, thus, your white looks and skins……..There you are, idiot, have a dose of your own racist stupid medicine!!!!
    You are so lucky i’m not on twitter!!

    He is a big fool!!! If he really gave him $10000, he will have some other info about his friend! Just a sick joker, lives are lost daily and you are joking about it!!! Ode!!!

    you are so stupid for starting this international mockery you must feel safe because you feel you are far away, trust me you have Friends Families Colleagues Total Strangers that are in West Africa that might bring this to you just right where you are. This is an INTERNATIONAL PROBLEM that is why those with foresights left their comfort zones(may God rest their souls) and some offering what they have e.g Canada to help combat this deadly disease not sitting around composing senseless tweets! ODE!

    It’s very despicable for him to use Ebola as a weapon to demean Nigerians all in the name of 419… Don’t worry, we’ll wait to hear his response when Ebola visits his family. Very swallow dude.
    419 is BAD. Yes we know, but it’s wrong to wish them the plague of Ebola…. that’s practically wishing them death.

    Like as if he really sent 10K to someone in Nigeria.

  36. ijebu boy

    August 14, 2014 at 6:19 am

    Yep… he is making fun of Naija i agree. why is he so insistent on sending the 5k? who has 5k to just throw away? begging us to find him so he can send the guy 5k mschew. if you really need to send money so bad, send it to me ma nigga, and it does not need to be overseas, i live in Australia too. lol
