    Arrest them all and seize the properties, they are not the only Nigerians entitled to enjoy the oil money. The poor, the weak, the old, the young, the unemployed are entitled to enjoy the Nigeria oil money too. With all this surplus money, why can’t the government set-up a welfare system to help the most vulnerables in the society.
