  1. They are lucky they are not in Malaysia. They would be on death row by now. They never learn. God help those that are still in this ‘business’.

  2. Abidemi you have problems with Igbo tribe you are a big **** there are drug dealers in every tribe and race all over the word why must you refer people from the east as drug dealers a 65 years old Yoruba woman was caught at Heathrow airport London with cocain on her wig and private part .

    • Dan, are you not ashamed your people from the East are more into drug and other heineous crimes in Nigeria than other tribes you’ve mentioned. Yes other tribes are also into various criminal activities but, what explains the prevalence of the people of South East in the majority of people into all manner of crimes in Nigeria and across the West African sub-region and beyond. The entire South East of Nigerian population, including everyone of you spread in Lagos, Kano, Kwara, Ibadan, Kaduna, Kafanchan, Damaturu, Sokoto, Zaria and everywhere around the world constitute a little over 20% of the populations of Nigeria. Why are these same people despite their numerical minority compared to the entire population of Nigeria more likely of to be involved in criminal activities anywhere in Nigeria and around the world.? Its unthinkable a single tribe claims everyone else in Nigeria hates them but, refuses to check their own attitude and behaviour towards the other tribes and neighbours they live with and cannot survive without. Its mere arrogance and self coceitedness for a people who contineously talk about marginalisation to think Nigeria cannot survive without them because they are traders in second hand spare parts and Okrika sellers in Lagos and elsewhere, because they maigrate and settle to acquire properties in other tribes’ territories and pay taxes. If half of what they boast of establishing in other peoples’ land is done in the East, the East will turn into “Mecca” for all Nigerians. The people of the East should endeavour to recaliberate their orientations of peaceful co-existence with the rest of Nigerians tribes, rather than this suspecions of “everyone in Nigeria hates us” which Igbos themselves have the duty to explain to the rest of Nigerians, rather than this vague and self deceptive reasons always bandied around as being the “Israelis” of Nigeria.

  3. @Abidemi… I bet you don’t see your brothers in the business too to ask that question . Hypocrite…
