    worth N4.2million? They must have stolen the pond along with the fish. Wonder how people of no fixed address successfully managed to dispose of such obviously large loot.

    Indeed, the first thought to cross my mind was that the value of the fish must have been grossly exaggerated. How much is the whole business worth or has Naira become so worthless that even ordinary fish is worth millions? Why grant bail to persons with no fixed address? The court must know they are a flight risk. The saga never ends in Nigeria, o ga.
