Yes I stole the money!
I know they've already exposed billions of naira, in cash and property;

Break Up Nigeria
Break up Nigeria and get it over with! The colonial masters put the country together. They have been gone since 1960 yet instead of reverting back to the old countries and stay UNITED as a Commonwealth of Nations like the USA; the Hausas became the new colonial Masters!

The climax was attained when those who fought against him some 45 years ago recognised the fact that the Ikemba Nnewi did…Continue
When the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti released the song, VIP – Vagabond In Power in the late 70’s, Nigerians paid little heed to the lyrics, but danced their feet out to this politically-laced music.

Remember: The step you take now determines how powerful you…Continue
