    converting between naira and stable world currencies is no longer arithmetic. these days it takes partial differential equations and geometric mechanics to adequately capture the relationship.

    These guys are legends! I honestly don’t feel they ought to be arresting these guys. Anyone who can con someone out of USD145,000 under the guise of marriage should be given an award. And anyone who can be conned out of USD145,000 under the guise of marriage DOESN’T DESERVE the money….

    Hi bellanaija.. Did you guys hear about John dumelo doing the same thing to a woman? He promised to marry her and collected money from her…. got the juice and even the payment proof.

    The woman who paid the money ought to be arrested for money laundering. How the hell you send that huge some without even minding if you are paying to a terrorist organization. Extradite her and keep her together with his husband.
