    Thieving so and so….$800,000 is ALOOOOT of money. Jeez. How do you even consider consuming & consealing such an amount. It’s almost like a game of finder’s keepers. No accountability. You’ve got to love Buhari. Only his regime would try this. Does anyone think GEJ would have dared?
    Okay Ogas, finally it’s out in the open, what you did. We kindly ask that you return the loot. We kinda need it to resucitate our economy pls.
