    That is good for the 419 man. This act of systematic robbery is so commonplace this days with this visa agents. Whoever is caught in this act of robbery should be forced to vomit that money and be dealt with accordingly.

    Good morning All.

    Hello Naijagist, I have been a fan since 2013. I do comment before but you no longer enable my comment.

    Please how do i get Bishop Victor Friday Okojie arrested for stealing and obtaining money to process visa for 15 of us to Israel through false pretense.
    His MTN line has been unavailable for a very long time now & EFCC in Ikoyi told me that they don’t handle case of less than 1 million. The less than 1 million is just for me and we all paid more than 600k.

    Please i really need help on how to get him arrested. I have full gist & all the proof you will need.

    Thank you.
