“How can you steal so much from a country & still eat, sleep & probably pray at night?” – Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun on EFCC’s Latest Discovery

Published

Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun

Media Personality Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun, in a series of tweets shared her thoughts on the recent discovery of $43.4m, 27,800 Pounds and N23.2m by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Following the recovery, online news medium Sahara Reporters alleged that the apartment belongs to a former Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

The news portal also alleged that the building belongs to former National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Adama Muazu.

Muazu had refuted the allegations but Etco Nigeria Limited, a construction firm partly owned by an Israeli company, Electrical Limited who said on its website that it built the house, named Muazu as the client.

Sahara Reporters has however backtracked, saying that the apartment raided belongs to PDP Chieftain Anthony Anenih‘s daughter. It added that the ex NNPC MD lives in another apartment in the same building, not the one raided.

“With the amount of money being recovered by (EFCC) if we all became whistleblowers we would probably eradicate poverty in Nigeria,” Stephanie said.

    @Steph: I have not seen your women’s empowerment programme either no matter how small. Nigerian who will not give a kobo know how to call out other people for not giving

    I am not in support of any form of thievery but
    Without any shred of proven evidence or court conviction just based on hearsay you have dragged this woman on twitter streets and even know her maid ran away with some money ???.

      You that are talking where is yours.
      She doesn’t have to publicize what she does. Even giving a lady small money is good enough.
      Every little bit counts

    And their children too, don’t forget the children. Claiming “rich kids”, trying to oppress “poor man pickin”.

    Some youth work long hours, in brutal conditions to make ends meet, some don’t have jobs and can’t afford the basics needs to survive, while some steal, squander and spend excesses on bags, shoes, cars, trips, etc.

    One day, the first shall be the last. God is still on the throne. To my fellow youth, don’t worry keep your head up, keep fighting, it will be over soon for God always rewards hardwork.
    One love!

    maybe they will stop stealing when people stop worshipping them.
    Maybe they will stop stealing when u guys stop attending their owanbes.
    Maybe they will stop stealing when u guys are following them to chop the money.
    maybe they will stop stealing when stars start using their power to advocate for these people to be prosecuted.
    maybe they will stop stealing if they are forced to live in the hell hole that they have created.

    Seriously??? A woman did this???? Anyway it’s in a woman’s nature to be greedy,over ambitious and machiavellian.I don’t know why women are often perceived to be less corrupt and held to higher moral and ethical standards than men? Is it because of gender stereotypes categorizing them as the softer sex? but the cases of this woman,Diezani and Patience Jonathan proves that women are intrinsically more corrupt than men.Infact this is now a considerable evidence that women are more experience in corruption and not less corruptible than men.

    And the question still remains;; Are women likely than men to engage in political corruption? Oh yes!! cause when they are given opportunity to work for some government organisation,they tend to do a lot of this kind.Not everyone but most of them are culprits,spoiling and defaming the name.I guess that women’s affinity for money increases when they get a high profile job e.g(Allison Madueke,patience Jonathan ,Stella Oduah,Patricia Etteh etc).It makes me sad when they say women are more transparent than men,for that reason they should get involved at all levels in order to lower corruption levels.So simply adding women to a high profile job will not solve corruption in countries as Nigeria where corruption runs rampant.So once again gender is not an issue when it comes to corruption.

    Those who say women deserves equal access to positions of leadership and opportunity to take part in politics,I say “BLEEP YOU”.This is another reason why women should not be given high profile positions or even be involved in politics because women are likely to accept or provide a bribe than men..The reason why we don’t hear this, is because the number of women in politics is still so few that it is hard to accurately measure and compare.

    BTW i’m not judging all women.

    “This is APC propaganda with that brain dead PMB, always witch hunting” “what have they done with all the money they recovered”. APC should leave Mama Peace, Alison Madueke, Stella Oduah and Esther Ogbue alone. Are they the only thieves in this country. What about going after Yardua’s wife and Remi Thiefnubu and Saraki Baseje’s wife, to mention a few. I’m waiting for the day Yorubas will defend their thieves like this and call it witch hunt. Our thieves are even given chieftaincy title by them them. I bow o!!!! Wey the people wey call this APC lies yesterday. I don’t care who the thief is, be it APC, PDP, Yoruba/Hausa/Igbo. As long as a thief is caught and shamed that’s all that matters. Oya over to wailers!!!!!!!!

    What is this one saying?

    People that will still go to church and take front seat, get special attention from pastors. Become “Alaga Ijoko” (chairman/chairwoman) at weddings, events…

    People that have fans all over the country. Are they not the same breed that sponsor some celebs like you? Why won’t they sleep and eat well.

    Here, it is the hardworking and diligent Nigerians that don’t sleep well. They’re the ones constantly pondering what the next day holds, how they’re gonna clench their next deal, how they have to pay for petrol, gas, power their gens, secure clean water. and still answer to the Nigerian police at road blocks.

    Welcome to Nigeria

    “How can you steal so much from a country & still eat, sleep & probably pray at night?” On their beds, because they give ‘it’ to Bank and the banking sectors to invest!

    Abeg, make all of una sit down. Is it not the same people that most of you will wear the latest designers to attend their event just because they are RICH?
    Please, most of these Nigerian celebrities will wine and dine with the thieves and worship them then come online to spew empowerment (I am not saying you are among except the shoes fits).
    Na this same bellanaija we dey see all of una pictures

      Nne, thanks a bunch. Thieves and crooks, like Odetola properly caught on recorded media offering bribes. Yet, our “celebrities” will kill to get an invitation to his parties or to fraternise with his children.

      And he’s just one of the greater spectrum of shady characters we like to term as “elite”. It’s hilarious how our conscience only kicks in, far away from the red carpet events and those seriously high profile weddings.

    In all of these, I still blame Nigerian youths. They support these thieves by worshipping the ground they walk on because of the tashere (little) pocket mon they get from them.
    Nigerian youths should start thinking about the future of their born and unborn children, maybe, then their head will reset and have a rethink.
    Nigerian youths, forget these looters and take your country back from these heartless thieves.

    Abeg preach to yourself. Na you and your fellow celebs they spend the money on, or where do you think money for your bags, shoes and trips come from? No sane hardworking person will spend like that. If it’s not stolen government funds, it’s yahoo yahoo or drugs.

  15. Seriously

    April 13, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    So sad and their children will still flaunt this stollen funds on us e.g bisola Oyo state governor daughter..

    BN, the building can still be owned by Muazu and the specific apartment owned by Anthony Anenih’s daughter! His denial means nothing, and he could very well have an apartment in his building!

    Abeg, fellow Bella Naijirians,
    Make una no vex oh.
    You all are saints. Corruption was never in Nigeria until I came along.
    I am the one stealing all your Money. Things were working well in Nigeria, until now! None of you have given or taken bribe. Am the problem..

    Now can you all ask YOUR LEADERS for good governance.
    Good governance can reduce stealing to the barest minimum! !

    This propaganda has not reduced the prize of Gari in the market. Has it ???
    Good governance, creative leaders could! !!!!!!

    @Mz Socially Awkward- permit me to rephrase because you just gave an Igbo sister ‘liver this morning.
    “How can you steal so much from a country & still eat, sleep & probably pray at night?”
    On their beds, because they give ‘it’ to GTBank and the other connected banks within the banking sectors to invest!
    You my dear Nigerian celebrity is the direct beneficiary of Nigerian corruption!
