  1. U beta give this woman her money back asap or else calamity will befall anyone who’s hand is involved don’t say I didn’t warn you people oh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Buhari is punishing all his enemy one by one . To fight corruption is very good becuase of what average of nigeria people are been facing recently and of the past .i think that buhari should stop targeting selecting individual , instead of to go every one , that is where he failed .

  3. The “fashion designer” who dresses Dame Patient (sorry, Patience), should be executed. Very lucky you are not in one of those die-hard, rigid Islamic countries. Why does she appear in public dressed like a masquerade or a clothed lunatic? All these windfall money that people never worked for, is this what it has now come to? Illiteracy plus stolen money equals madness. Doesn’t her husband see her or comment about her dressing before she leaves the house? Anyway, na modern woman, dem no dey listen to husband. One “First Lady” Nigerians won’t forget in a long time. Diaris God o.

  4. If all the money mentioned above are stolen from government, pls let them be confiscated and pump back to Nigeria economy…all these protocols of investigating and bla bla is not making sense…Nigeria desperately need those money now…

  5. So bicos they are freeze her account. Are they also freeze her face? Why she keep face like white busucat wey no see rat chop since July?

  6. Bihari also remember that one day u will also step out,do remember that The cup u use to measure for others will also be used to measure for u too,all the money u have been recovering wat have u been doing with them? And still plastic rice and plastic eggs and so many products are been circulated every were,u are a disgrace to malams,

  7. At last the Accounts of Mama ‘Thieve’ sorry ‘Mama Peace’ were frozen, so when will the court case begin? we only hope our Corrupt Judges will live up to expectation. Sorry Mama ‘DIARIS GOD OOOOOOOOO’

  8. Do we have any credible justice system in Nigeria that can successfully try corrupt government officials and their accomplices in the court of law? Capital NO! The three arms of government through which the country can procure a sound criminal law which bill can effectively be passed and be approved which in turn can exclusively sentence corrupt politicians alleged with money laundry act to life imprisonment has not been enacted because nigerian government itself is corrupt.

    That is what can exactly explain why many corrupt public officers and their accomplices like madam patience has not being sentence to prison ever since her alligation of corruption came to light.

    It is understandable that as a wife of former president,madam Patience financial status cannot in anyway be compare to that of an average nigerian citizen. Nevertheless,if she’s truly innocent of the massive corruption she has been alleged with,then let her come out and defend her source of wealth. However,in the absence of such clarification in the court,she should be in jail by now. Again, can this type pf justice take place in NIGERIA? An emphatic no !

    It is a pity that no one can rescue we the poor masses from the claws of CORRUPT NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT who often neglect us to die of poverty.

  9. Is she the only thief what about tinubu who bought a private of huge amount of 50 million dollars has he be put to trial, what about oshiomole who build a mansion of about 10 billion naira has he be put to trial, what about amechi whose 142 billion naira was been discovered in the uk bank has he be put to justice, what about obasanjo who embezzled 16 billion dollar of electricity has he be put to trail, what about the chief of army staff whose million of dollar mansion was discovered in dubai has be put to trial, see my fello nigerians the war againt corruption is to weaken the opposition the war is very selective what about the corrupt ones in apc, why can’t the efcc whatever they called their self fish them out instead they will cover up for them yeye efcc and mumu judiciary don’t forget the law of carmal will bestone on all of you amen…..,
