    This is another common stealing and not looting or corruption according to president Badluck Ebele Jonathan during his last presidential media chat some months ago. This is the same way that Boko Haram terrorists, our criminal politicians, and other friends of Jonathan’s government loot the people’s money to various cities of the world while millions of our citizens are living in abject poverty. This is a clear case of money laundering by government officials and Nigerian criminal politicians. No good roads, unstable electricity supply, insecurity, shattered educational system, high rate of unemployment among our able youths, and lack of foreign investments are the attributes of this democracy of the last sixteen years. Over $9.8 millions dollars is hidden in three briefcases, the money was never declared to South African custom officials and the carrier claimed it was meant to purchase weapon for the Nigerian Security Services(SSS). These criminals are so dumb, unintelligent, shameless, and insane to think that anyone will believe such a ridiculous claim. Tell me, what manner of government purchases weapon for one of her agency through illegal money laundering? Only God knows the amount of money Nigerian crooks are moving illegally out of Nigerian economy daily. There is God O Nigerian politicians! The only way out of messy Nigerian conditions is a bloody military coup that will clear way to new set of patriotic Nigerian leaders. We need patriotic young military guys like Jerry Rawlings team in Ghana that will help us and delive over 180 millions suffering Nigerians from the tormentors of the people called politicians. Since the beginning of our false democracy about 16 years ago, our nation know no progress,peace and positive transformation. What we currently have in Nigeria for the past sixteen years is a false democracy that only benefits criminal politicians at the expense of the suffering masses. In my opinion, a false democracy is worst than a military regime. May Almighty God deliver our beloved nation from these animals in human bodies. Amen.

    “Upon questioning, the men said the money is meant for purchase of weapons for Nigeria security services (SSS)” Chineke! who are these men?. I have answer for you…MOSSAD. Equipments for Nigerian security is FG task not average men. This is RED FLAG. Since no real investigation will come out of this, I wont bother myself. Believe it or not, this is part of BH scheme. Israel knew that. This is one of the traits BH destabilization of the country.
