We were Never Arrested – Jyoti & Kiran Matharoo Release Official Statement

Jyoti and Kiran Matharoo

Canadian sisters Jyoti and Kiran Matharoo who were arrested and charged last year for allegedly blackmailing, extorting and cyberbullying billionaire Femi Otedola, are finally able to speak out.

They have released an official statement with court documents to prove that they were never put in jail and that they returned back to Canada five days after news broke that they were in jail facing a 5-year sentence. They also said that they were forced to make the apology video, which they agreed to do so they could get their passports back.

The statement reads:

A scandalous story is always a better sell than the truth. This story had all the elements of a great scandal: sex, secrets, money, power, and prominent figures. We decided to break our silence by doing an interview with CTV NEWS. In reality, the interview was over one hour but CTV was only able to air a few minutes and naturally, there would be some confusion and unanswered questions.

We tried to be patient for the sake of some innocent Nigerians, but it seems our silence is being misconstrued as being guilty.

We have been home since January 2, 2017, FIVE days after the media reported we were in jail facing a sentence of five years. Uncredible journalism is what fuelled this entire media circus of lies.

WE WERE NEVER ARRESTED.

Sorry to disappoint, but we were never in jail. Six men without identification, uniforms or paperwork barged into our hotel room and said we were coming in for questioning. These men were under the control of a wealthy Nigerian citizen. Nigeria is the kind of place you can pay anyone to do anything; it IS lawless if laws are bendable by a fool trying to take the law into his own hands and play God.

WE DO NOT OWN NAIJAGISTLIVE.

We do not own any gossip website. The only website we own is our lifestyle blog www.matropolitan.com.

This blog, Naijagistlive used it’s anonymity as it’s power; the owner is anonymous, the readers are anonymous. It was called “the best website in Africa” but in reality, it was just a gossip website with unverified stories sent in by the readers.

What non-Nigerians do not understand is that media is controlled in Nigeria. Newspapers and bloggers accept bribes under the illusion of “buying advertising space” to post a favorable story or remove a negative one. For men with money, all it would take is a simple phone call to the journalist to say, “Why did you post this, do you know who I am, do you know who my father is, remove it.” If the journalist refuses, the rich man can threaten to harm him/her therefore, the journalists tread carefully. That is what is really bothering this “billionaire”, Femi Otedola, that Naijagistlive’s owner is anonymous, was operating with freedom of speech and people couldn’t pay to hide their indiscretions.

What the public fails to realize is that many people were brought in for questioning about this website and released but it was all kept hush hush. For some reason, our questioning was publicized and we were branded as the owners.

It was a true witch-hunt trying to shut down this site and as pathetic as it sounds, the Nigerian police, misguided by granting themselves the title of the “Intelligence” Response Team, were picking out suspects from guesses in the comment section of Naijagistlive posted by anonymous commenters.

JAIL?

We refused to write statements without a lawyer because the police did not even know our names let alone have a single document with our names on it.

We refused to co-operate even though six men were pushing us around and intimidating us with guns.

We refused to give the corrupt police officers a list of names including contact information of any wealthy men we knew for their own form of blackmail.

Since we refused to co-operate, they put us into a holding cell at SARS (Special Anti Robbery Squad) with eleven other women in it FOR EIGHT DREADFUL HOURS. We have never been so scared. Nigeria is the type of place they can put you in jail, keep you without being able to call someone for help, and you can vanish. We cried all night.

Sahara Reporters posted a story on “How Nigerian Police Randomly Kill Suspects At SARS Ikeja” and states “it may have become the address for extrajudicial killings.”

The next day, they did an illegal search of our room and electronics. If we had refused, we would’ve been put back into the cell. We never had a choice through all of this.

We were set to be released after the police DID NOT FIND ANYTHING RELATING TO NAIJAGISTLIVE on our two phones and one laptop. I urge anyone seeking the truth to check the police file, granted they even have one. At that point, the media became so widespread posting us as the website owners, that some wealthy gullible illiterates believed it without a shred of proof and put ransoms on our heads of millions of naira believing we “broke their homes” through this website.

THREATS.

The same police that questioned us had to put us under police protection because they would be held accountable if two Canadian citizens went missing. We were taken to a hotel near the airport and kept in a room with armed guards for eighteen days with little to no contact to the outside world. The police claimed this was for our own protection but really they were playing both sides for their own monetary gain.

FEMI OTEDOLA.

Unfortunately, our names struck familiarity with “billionaire” Femi Otedola who was one of the petitioners hoping to get the site shut down. To a man who does not know how tooperate anything besides a Nokia 3110 phone, it was a case closed as to who posted a story on his wife “mistreating her staff in the United Kingdom”, that caused him to force the police to drop everything and chase a gossip ghost.

Literacy is an issue in Nigeria. They had police officers that were not technology literate, who didn’t understand basic logic, investigating a site they had never read. We were also verbally brutalized and slandered on Naijagistlive many many times and when we told the officers that, they were confused.

Femi used our vulnerability as an opportunity to threaten us every day to admit to owning the website. He didn’t believe we didn’t own the site until the website owner replied live in front of Femi’s chief of security and the second petitioner. Thank you Naijagistlive for shutting down your website to save us. The owner was tweeting, adding blog posts, and doing interviews while we had no access to technology, which is obvious proof that we do not own the website but simple logic is a hard sell to uneducated people.

CORRUPTION.

Nigeria’s Assistant Commissioner of Police has no integrity and was operating at ANY command of Femi Otedola’s, by making his Abuja officers harass us and force us to write statements about a Lagos based website. Why would Abuja officers be in Lagos outside of their jurisdiction? Does the Nigerian police have the budget to fly between cities to chase an online ghost? No. Femi used Abuja officers because he has more pull with certain authoritative individuals there; just a taste of corruption happening under President Buhari’s nose.

The unprofessional Assistant Commissioner heading this investigation later made sexual comments about one of our bodies, then asked for a phone number.

UNDERTAKING.

We were forced to sign an undertaking in a hotel room with the threat of maximum-security prison. We were told that if we do not sign, we will be taken to court where they will ensure we don’t get bail. There was no lawyer in the room; it was a Nigerian citizen who typed these ill-written documents. A criminal undertaking is supposed to be created by the police or the court. The papers did not even have an official police stamp, court stamp, or court location. They even made Babatunde Oyebode, the website builder, sign a paper saying “I promise to never enter Nigeria again” when he is a Nigerian citizen.

VIDEO APOLOGY.

We were forced to make a video apology in our hotel room with the promise that Femi would allow the Assistant Commissioner to release our passports. That obvious forced and coerced apology was made without as much as a police officer, let alone a lawyer, present. When someone is reading off a phone and saying, “We freely volunteered to make this video and are not under duress”, it is an obvious red flag and chances are, it is not a sincere or genuine apology.

We were promised the undertaking and video apology were for Femi’s eyes only. This undertaking and “confessional” video was sent to a blogger who is known to accept bribes, the very thing they tried to petition against Naijagistlive for, to further build their case of pinning this website on us.

COURT.

We were taken to court without a lawyer or legal representation of any sort, we were never shown a charge sheet or any piece of documentation, and were taken to a back room to see the magistrate where our plea was not taken.

This was just another Nigerian scam to make money. Unfortunately, Nigeria is such a disgustingly corrupt country that the police officials, commissioners, and judges designated to FIGHT CORRUPTION are the problem, not solution. Administering any form of authoritative power to those lacking integrity will never fix your country.

BABATUNDE OYEBODE.

This poor man, Babatunde Oyebode was slandered as the website owner prior to us and it was said he was only released when they found more suitable scapegoats to pin it on. It was reported that Babatunde had a confessional video. He never confessed. Instead he pleads and pleads that he is not the owner, his story never changes. He admit he built the website and was paid anonymously online; a concept that Nigerian illiterates investigating this case could not understand. He has been tortured, hung upside down, beaten, and starved, for a cyber bullying offence? All because of his bad luck being born a Nigerian citizen. Where is the justice in that?

He is now framed as a suspected fraudstar, kidnapper, armed robber, blackmailer, and international terrorist after the wealthy men in Nigeria paid the media and court officials to ruin this innocent man’s life with lies.

In any civilized country, the viewers of this injustice would stand up to protect an innocent citizen. They would petition to release him as quickly as these men petitioned against a gossip site and demand the Nigerian police drop all the real cases to satisfy Femi exercising his power with bribes. Up until now, the media has not provided one shred of proof linking Babatunde to the website as anything besides the builder and hosting company providing security, which he has already admit to.

PICTURES AND VIDEOS.

WE ARE NOT IN POSSESSION OF ANY NON-CONSENSUAL OR COMPROMISING PHOTOS/VIDEOS OF ANYONE.

WE DO NOT PLANT VIDEO CAMERAS IN OUR HOTEL ROOMS OR ON OUR BODIES.

These were rumors started by Femi Otedola and he achieved this by feeding the media malicious stories in the hopes of creating suspicion so that no one would intervene to help us. The tabloids fail to understand that media is a joke in Nigeria; it is never based on truths. Apparently, Femi can be vindictive when he does not get what he wants. More on this later.

The types of people we knew could’ve had us out of any situation in Nigeria and safely sent home. Femi didn’t want that so he fed everyone stories that the police found pictures of each of them in our phones so they would turn on us and back up his personal vendetta against us.

EMBASSY.

Legally, the embassy would not be able to intervene if we had a legitimate case pending. We did not sneak out of the country. At first, the embassy denied us stating that they “Do not intervene with local police matters.” The burden of proof was on us.

We paid a court clerk to get a copy of the court documents which we hadn’t been allowed to see prior to attaining them. After calling a human rights lawyer on December 29th, 2016, recommended by the embassy, the paperwork was translated from legal jargon to Layman’s terms, where we found that not only was the case not filed but our names were not even in the paperwork and simply added to Babatunde’s existing case. The bail conditions did not restrict travel, so clearly the police was holding our passports illegally on Femi’s command. If anyone was to hold our passports, it should have legally been the court. The papers were completely bogus and a true embarrassment to literacy. The charges were the kidnapping of Femi Otedola with no proof of kidnapping, no evidence of the threat to kidnap, no details of the alleged threat to blackmail, and the form of communication of the threat was not even listed. I couldn’t believe they held us for twenty days with this joke.

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?

Femi wanted to bury this entire issue, or maybe even bury us. You never know what someone is capable of.

Otedola wanted to stroke his own ego like he always does and paint himself as a billionaire, philanthropist, loving husband, protecting father, and hero for taking down this slanderous website posting these married men’s indiscretions and giving them sleepless nights. We were depicted as sex workers, prostitutes, blackmailers, extortionists, and kidnappers. We have no criminal past but the world views us as criminals. What is our crime? Kidnapping a man we know?

Bad news sells. We were easy targets to pin this website on. Claiming we have naked pictures/videos of men we use to blackmail through the site in order to make a bogus case appear valid in the eyes of the public was the motive to ensure it would be taken down.

At this point, it would be a bigger embarrassment than Femi’s actual post if he didn’t find the perfect scapegoats because he and the second petitioner had made a mockery of the police force by accusing countless people of being the owners of Naijagistlive. Each time a new person was posted as the”owner”, it was posted with lies of confessions and proof that no one ever saw.

Femi Otedola wanted to set a precedent and make an example of us publicly, which is why the undertaking and video “confession” were posted. If he successfully pinned the site on two foreigners and put them in jail where they can’t dispute what he says, no Nigerian would ever dare to post him or his family.

For many insecure bitter women unhappy with themselves, this was just an opportunity. It was easier for them to believe we are “escorts” turned “blackmailers” than for African women to accept that any of their men took care of us generously at their own free will. This was all made even easier with our jealous friends turned foes. Apparently, Swanky Jerry pointed the police in our direction when he was brought in for questioning hoping to pin it on anyone to save himself.

We have never needed to blackmail or extort anyone. The few Nigerian men we know are capable and would happily invest in any business proposition we bring forward, so why would we resort to blackmail? We get more out of Nigeria by being friends with these men and keeping it cordial. Even if we were to blackmail a Nigerian, we wouldn’t be stupid enough to go to Nigeria to do it. This was obviously a personal vendetta against us and Femi Otedola should understand that if we wanted to blackmail him, we would never need to go through a third party, gossip website, or take sneak pictures to do so…

If you ever had the pleasure of knowing us, if we asked for your assistance and you did nothing but chime in to Femi’s ear, then we will no longer be protecting you; this is just the beginning. Come after us all you want, we’ve assured that even our absence will not silence us. We have always protected the people we know, but none of them protected us when we needed them. We even suffered through a holding cell refusing to give the names and details about these men. We STILL PROTECTED YOU when we didn’t realize what was happening and who else was involved in this so please thank Femi the same way you thanked him for saving you from us when you believed his lies.

      “The types of people we knew could’ve had us out of any situation in Nigeria and safely sent home. Femi didn’t want that so he fed everyone stories that the police found pictures of each of them in our phones so they would turn on us and back up his personal vendetta against us.”

      This excerpt above is the mea culpa for me to the question “what was your business with all these men [not men and women] in Nigeria?” Your business partners clearly were able to succumb to the so-called fervent lies told by Otedola because he advised them that their pictures (I am guessing pictures they dont want to show family members with pride) were in your possession. Let me say it in plain English. If you and I are engaged in a non-clandestine business venture, the only pictures available to you would be pictures of handshakes, maybe pictures celebrating success would be the least formal of all those pictures. In which case, if Femi called me to tell me you had pictures, I would ask Femi “why should I care” and hang up. But it seems your “business partners” have sufficient reason to believe that you would have pictures of them that cannot be shared with family members respectfully. This is why they listened to Femi and could not come to your defense. When will Nigerian men stop embarrassing themselves for public deposition punani? When????????

    Everyone with sense knew they did not own the website. Anyway I’m just waiting for part 2 of this saga. Don’t know why Nigerians men won’t stop embarrassing their wives round the whole Lagos.

    I don’t agree with these ladies’ lifestyle but they made some strong points. Corruption has eaten so deep into the Nigerian society. The judicial system is so flawed and highly oppressive to the poor, weak and voiceless. Rich men are above the law and ordinary citizens have grown accustomed to accepting this way of life.

    In the west, no ‘big man’ is above public scandal or scrutiny, but here, just one man (Femi Otedola) has the power to shut down an entire website and order the arrest of people without any concrete evidence against them.

    Bloggers are bribed or threatened to censor the truth. I just weep for this failed and broken nation.

    P.s. Kemi Olunloyo is still in prison. Why? Because she exercised her freedom of speech.

      Weird thing about Kemi’s own is that it’s a Pastor who wielded his influence to get her in jail.

      yes.. strong points.. but they were benefiting from said corruption.. you talk about the level of corruption, how the system is so bad.. yet they stayed? really? you and i both know that if they didn’t get anything out of these married men, they wouldn’t stay in Nigeria.

      plus they claim they arent sleeping with these randy men yet their entire rant alludes to this fact. saying things like “we know femi’s ego”how do you know what the mans ego is like if u haven’t gotten so close to him.

      If they think they want to expose these billionaires for having extra marital affairs they must be joking.. what will now happen? what will they say that we dont already know? will it destroy their businesses? no!.. will it make their wives leave them? NO!.. so what do they hope to achieve?

      I think these girls are just bitter that their whole game has ended..
      And as for them owning the website. i think it is entirely possible.. but i know they definitely didnt write it

NO!.. so what do they hope to achieve?”

      @le coco
      .. looking at this statement you just made, pls ask yourself.. if the accusations are as irrelevant as you say, why are these billionaires willing to spend so much money censoring and minimising the spread of all such rumours? Why harrass the girls? Why shut down the site?

      Yes these girls benefited from the broken system as do ALL foreigners do in this craphole of a country… Yes, they also ended up bitter but who wouldn’t be after all they’ve gone through just because some fragile-ego’ed billionaire couldn’t stand the heat of scandalous allegations.

      May 9, 2017 at 12:04 pm

      They were benefiting from the said corruption. They’ve forgotten so fast how Governors will fly them in private jets with police escorts following them all around Lagos and Abuja and now they’re talking about corruption? They used to post the pictures all over Instagram then. I have no doubt that they were forced to do the video and Otedola is dirty and irresponsible, these girls however are equally irresponsible and they dare not deny they are escorts or prostitutes. They had a lavishly lifestyle funded by useless wealthy married politicians and entrepreneurs, now they are writing epistles because they’ve been humiliated not only in Nigeria, but Canada and beyond. Business women indeed.

      @layolomo.. it may not be that Femi Otedola is trying to hush them.. he may be making a statement.. that you cant extort him and get away with it.. remember these billionaires have their reputation.. they don’t want to appear weak, or soft.. so they are using these girls to send a message…. please remember that the initial claim was that these girls were trying to extort money from the billionaires.

      I am not saying that these men are right.. i am just saying that the African condition has allowed them to get away with such

    This story is just a bunch of bull abeg! I’m particularly pissed at the way they kept saying ‘Nigeria’ is this and that like corruption is nonexistent in Canada. What were they in the country for? How come nobody who knew them could stand for them? I have many questions but last last, they’ll be fine

    • June

      May 9, 2017 at 11:28 am

      But it is THE TRUTH!! Is it because it’s coming from foreigners ? Every country is corrupt. The question now is to what extent has corruption affected the lives of the average citizen??
      Do Canadian citizens have access to uninterrupted water and electricity supply?
      Is there a functioning transportation system?
      Do Canadians have access to decent health care?
      Do Canadians have IDP centers where people are starving and dying because food and other materials meant for their livelihood are being diverted????
      I could go on and on! Let’s call a spade a spade Mr/Ms Bluff.

      Abeg! Bs! The same police officers they are insulting, those are the same officers that were their escorts, provided by the useless Married wealthy men they were having affairs with who funded their lavish lifestyles. The same police men were like their body guards and followed them everywhere with drivers. Now tables have turned and they are writing dissertations. When they were on PJs m, they didn’t know these people are or were corrupted? Such garbage. They are far from innocent, they are just as useless as the married men involved.

Glorified ashawos can open mouth to group everyone into the same category and be insulting the whole country anyhow. They wanna tell me they didn’t meet any hardworking/honest nigerian citizen during their visits? After chopping money finish they can now open mouth to say Nigeria is a disgrace.

    Next time abeg face your maga and don’t include the rest of us who work 40hrs or more every week, don’t sleep with men old enough to be our dads for money, pay for all of our travel expenses ourselves…

    Woman to woman I have a lot of respect for these two ladies not for their perfection but their ability to fight on. You can tell they weren’t raised up in the African household where women
    are told to be quiet and docile even in times of shame. The African woman’s greatest fear ‘shame’ . is grilled in her from a little girl. We live our lives running away from shame/mistakes. So we’re told to cover everything up, show the perfect siDe. Don’t let people see your imperfection. Whereas our fellow brothers their shame is limited to either being poor or rich (what a joke) In a time where their behaviour has been exposed. It appears these ladies have an astute level of self. More importantly they care that their voices are heard. Even if we don’t care to listen to it. I could say so much but just like all of us in our own lives there are hideous things we have done that we thank God nobody knows about. But African women have been raised to compete against each other to see another woman as the threat. The idea that a man has control over his behavior is mysterious to the African woman. Our gripe is always with the woman, never compassion.

    Secondly the runs girl myth!!! Ihmm mm
    The reason why a lot of Nigeriam women are so fund of calling every woman who isnt married or officially dating a guy a runs girl is because they have no clue or insight to what the heck a ‘runs girl does’ . The runs girl stereotype is officially beyond many women’s understanding and perspective of male and female relationships..I know many women between the age of 30-50 who are looked after by married men yet are not having sex with them. Not even a kiss!! Hahaha hard to believe for those who are in the know. These ladies contribute highly to helping these men succeed in their business. It isn’t as Saudid as everyone things. Yet I know for many Nigerian women that is hard to believe.
    Looking forward to seeing how these ladies rebuild their lives and learn from their youthful mistakes. Beauty and money can deceive one into thinking they have power. But power is irrelevant in a life filled with purpose. I can’t condemn them I can only pray for them and have compassion. As for the men of Nigeria, if Nigerian women feel validated as their men dishonour vows repeatedly in their face then we as women need to look at ourselves and our hearts. We need to be honest if that is a story we don’t mind keeping. If it is. Live in your truth. When we accept proposals from men who are not interested in honouring their marriage it’s for us to deal with. As women we need to acknowledge whom we are and take responsibility for our choices.

    as a Nigerian i must say you guys disgust me sometimes with your way of thinking.

    Even when it comes to domestic violence i have heard educated people and the first thing they ask is what did she do? Absolutely nonsense.

    I urge these two ashawos to write a book and release every single name. Have your lawyers give you advice on that too.

    DID MR BILLONAIRE FK THESE TWO SISTERS – YES HE DID. LETS TALK ABOUT THAT.

      But why do you define them as ‘Ashawos’?? Because you concluded they were havin sex with Mr Otedola? Even if they were as s adults they both gave consent. So why should the women be deemed as the Ashewos? ? If we call the ladies ashawo what term do you have for the men?

      Otedola is probably the only person they did not fck, which is why he became the face of the bully pulpit launched against them. If he had skeletons to hide, he would not be this bold. He probably was the only one without compromising pictures with them. Does not mean he does not have side chicks. Just not these ones I think.

    Bluff

    May your dumb ass (and everyone who liked your comments) continue to live in denial about useless nation called Nigeria.

    Yes they are ashawo but the girls are speaking truth about this nation do stop being defensive. Makes you sound real foolish and ignorant. You wish u could live in Canada

    What “business” do you have with Otedola and the other Nigerian entrepreneurs? You keep saying business but fail to elaborate. You two are useless girls and your Parents should be ashamed of you, as well as the useless men you’ve surrounded yourselves with. All of you are pathetic! You’re not Prostitutes? You’ve forgotten so fast how you’ll boldy and publicly exchange words on social media with the wives of the husbands you sleep with? You guys were so ruthless. Nigeria is corrupt but you two will stay in Nigeria for months, in expensive hotels with the police as private escorts, now you know Nigeria is corrupt? You should be ashamed like the men you sleep with and not even say anything. It’s still too early to start saying gibberish. Wayward girls!

      Just saying:
      I live in Canada; what is the big deal about living in Canada? Point is, the girls are as useless as these men, point blank period. Oh, Nigeria is corrupt but they used the corrupt money from the corrupt married men they were dating to travel all over the world. “The world has always depicted Nigeria in a negative light and we have always defended it, having visited so many times and even attempted restaurant consulting there. I was wrong; Nigeria is a disgrace”. You girls are a disgrace for sleeping with old men, only to use the money to buy designer items for Instagram. Wasn’t it on the blogs that the wife of one of the men you two were sleeping with slapped you at a salon when you attempted being rude to her? Restaurant consulting or Asewo consulting? Like the owner of the restaurant didn’t terminate your contracts for having affairs with the men who visit the restaurant.
      “Online hypocrites were engaging in the same act of cyber bullying us while trying to express their disgust for a cyber bullying website; senseless.” Even people here in Toronto bullied your ass, not just Nigeria. Your Instagram comment section was a mess from people in Canada, America, etc. Some of your high school friends of years ago made an Instagram page to troll you w.hores. I don’t feel sorry for you two as you’re just as shameless as these men. I don’t mind you guys shaming his man cause I hate irresponsible men but you two need to admit you’re high class w.hores.
      Caramel chic, what is wrong with someone saying wayward? Na wa o, some of you say bs and you’ll think you’re making sense. So you have to live under a rock to say wayway girl? Smh.

      no I read that blog dailiy everyday since it was opened till it was closed
      I know exactly the style of writingn and i copied every single gist pasted on that site and have it saved on my hard drive including all the evidence- the two writings are not the same
      They were not the owners of that site
      Stay in your denial zone .
      I repeat they did not own that site. They were used as scapegoats.
      Are you so gullible – So they were the owners of that site yet daily slut shame themselves and revealed all the men they were screwing with photos to back it up, Really? indeed. . I have every single post that was posted on that site and i have read it twice -a nd the style of writing is different.

    Bellanaija, NO!! You guys should have priorities. Kemi Olunyolo is still in jail and you guys are not saying anything. Nobody likes her but this is a democracy for Christ’s sake. She has not done anything unconstitutional. You people really need to draw attention to her plight. This is very unethical on your part and media outlets, like you guys are part of the decadence of Nigeria. SPEAK UP BELLANAIJA, YOU HAVE POWER. RECOGNIZE THAT AND USE YOUR POWER RESPONSIBLY.

      Are you serious? Kemi is still in side jail? Oh my gosh this is sad
      I mean i am not a fan of hers but cmon that lady has been in the jail for past 4 months now???
      Whao i never knew she was still in there. Moyo you know Bella will never cover that, She will rather cover CLASSY LUXURY people .:)
      🙂 Oh mehn i will pray for her sThis is sad ooh.

      No nigerian should ever think this country is democratic with freedom of speech cos it doesnt exist. As boisterous as most nigeriaans come across most of you are scared chickens. All of you are afraid to speak up. You are cowards. Afraids of what powerful politicians , billlionaires and police will do to you. Everyone is now afraid to speak up. How sad. Let me stay in my america . I am not going anywhere. .

    These women are street-smart! By releasing this “statement”, do you know how many Nigerian men are going to pay them to have selective amnesia?! No one wants their name exposed, so the men are going to pay heavily for the girls to omit them in further “statements”.
    If you think national funds are being squandered, you haven’t seen anything yet!

    It’s funny how they call the spouses bitter. How else do they expect them to feel when their husbands are out cheating on them?. These chicks are full of bs. They have been slinging their loose worn out crouches all over Nigeria for at least a decade. And it’s funny because the same country they are slandering is the same one that fed and clothed them. Had it not been for them hustling on their backs they wouldnt have ever had a taste of the fabulous life. For them to be so disgusted by this country they sure did spend a lot of time there. But I’m not going to knock their hustle. It obviously came with a little of short term perks.
