      D Hunter, the poultry is a smokescreen, a cover-up, for the real business that went underground. That is the idea. The two businesses must not neccessarily relate. I’ve forgotten what term is used for this in money laundering. But that is how most people carry out their evil and wicked plans or else they would quickly be asked to explain the source of their wealth.

    21 years is small, ask me why. he is 29yrs and after 21 yrs he will be 50. and there is even a probability thdt he won’t stay upto 21 yrs in jail then he will come out and print more fake naira notes. pls i’m not being pessimistic.

    He wants to make it big before clocking 50 years. But now he will make even nothing in prison. It’s not good to run faster than your shadow.
