    The man should spend at least 15 yrs in prison with hard labour . dat particular amount is just tooooooooooooooooooo much. His tenth generation can not finish the money .Why would he do such a thing …. that times 5 what James Iboro of Nigeria loot& he is serving 13 yrs i prisonment in london.The government should try to extend the jail term to at least 15yrs & all his properties should be seized. Nobody has ever loot this large sum of money in nigeria i guess. the greedy man case should be seriously look into.

    I never knew the likes of Bankole, Erastus, Ibori, Abacha, Babangida, Obasanjo, the Senators, Lawan ets exist in other African Nations. The money was just too much and millions will be wallowing in poverty in that same country without any form of concern from the pple in power. Anyway, there is ‘Nemesis’at their gate!
