    Why do we always prize ourselves in delusion in the country? We are here celebrating catching hustlers who could not get job in the GOD forsaken country, Nigeria and decided to use their brain on gullible but greedy whites. Why don’t EFCC tell badluck (sorry, Goodluck) to extend his forgiven status to all wrongly imprisoned Nigeria as it is the order of the day. EFCC u are just like ur boss; selective operation.

    EFCC! Please can you people tell the world who is the conplainat to those young men? I can see that you guys don’t really have other jobs, EFCC want us to believe that you guys don’t see all the minister’s that are stealling our money. Yes EFCC are not seening what they so called governor’s are doing in the states. Yes police or EFCC has the right to arrest any fraudster only when you have the victem on ground. I must bet EFCC now that after throughly check those people arrested now has no conplainat. Foulish country with foulish adminstration. Lawless Nigeria were government officials steal millions of Dollars and get bail within 3 days.

    i am just dissapointed in this useless country that has all it takes to be great, the economy has been harnessed and compressed to the benefical detect of the whims and caprices of the greedy few. yet the watch dogs that are delegated to rescue this nation from this greedy pirate who has wantonly destroyed this country beyound any forseeable rescue has now turn around from there task and has started catching fishes. instead of the pirate. efcc is a total failure to nigerians. you guys are as unreliable and and as hopeless, foolish, uncalculative and as unwise as our leaders. you guys should keep catching fishes while they sail away with our great ship. fools. go to other countries and see what we are passing through. we are treated with utmost disdain because they know we dont have a home.

    me i no blame dem for doing yahoo to get money o bcos if to say those boys com out and c wrk do, they no go do yahoo na.

    and again, i no say make una no arrest dem o but i want ask una dis question: as una arest dem now wetin una go do wit dem?
    una go kill dem? una no fit kill dem bcos dem no kill person.

    ok i c, una want just jail dem for som yrs and release dem again abi?
    but make una no forget say na train una dey train dem so. if those boys com out of dat place, dem go worst.

    for oda countries, wen dem catch ppl like dat, they wil feed dem, cloth dem, train dem on each talent they hav gotten so they get mor and wen they hav graduated, they work for their government or they fix dem somwhr good.

    can d D.C.O. of each of d police station around those yahoo boys swear wit their lives dat those boys dont use to bribe dem. can they? upon dat they stil hav d mind to arrest dem.

    me i am a girl of 19 yrs from Ogba Ikeja Lagos Nigeria. we ar three girls and we ar teling all of u EFCC down now, dat we ar traveling out to study (how to hack and a trained killer) and wen we ar bak, we shall continue…..
    and bfor u ppl wil catch me, i would had gotten many of ur girls trained on how to kill u, silently. …Plis my ppl dnt b afraid, am only talking to EFCC , POLITICIANS, DCO, INSPECTORS and some U OUT THERE…

    EFCC i c dat u dnt hav beta tins doin dats y u ar bc arresting young boys dat ar tryin to hustle sins thr is no wrk. but wait for just few yrs wen am bak, den u wil hav work to do. ….like mayb looking for me to catch!!

    …..MY BROTHER IS A YAHOO BOY and he is sponsoring me!
    if u want catch us, i go giv u our address. only if una go fit succeed in going bak home in peace and not in peaces!!!

    If our country empower our youth with jobs I’m sure they will be no scammers what do u expects from a 30 year old man who finished studying and apply for a various jobs and non of them called him back? What do u expects him to do? After putting all his hard earnd savicing money in his academics and still no jobs. Well I don’t blame the scamers that where cought,I blame the country. If they provide job oppotunity for the youths I’m sure they will have nothing to do with scam. You fools speaks of hell why you don’t no what they have been true or what made them turn to such way of life, I don’t blame u sha, na because you get person wen they feed morning till night na make u fit open ur routine gotta mouth they talk. See him face! Wen be like papa dash me I where. Since u say u sabi well, well u for enter the street mo see weather u go fit last 10min
