  1. Why would anybody steal land document? If the land is up for sale or lease and the like lawyers normally conduct search at the lands registry and the true registered owner will be known . So what will the stolen documents be used for? 419 ?

  2. So unfortunate that corruption has eating so deep into our Nigerian system. This matter is uncalled-for. The police, never made any investigations all the did was to collect money from the complaints and charge innocent people to court for nothing. In advance society this very matter would never get to court without proper investigation by the police. I want to say that all the allegations here are all lies from the pit of hell and can never stand the test of time. Let us wait and see. The complainant here should be ready to prove this case beyond reasonable doubt. Failure to do he should be ready for a civil law suit.
