  1. 9 months in prison for 3ok..we are yet to hear who have the million dollars found in osbourne towers and all the forfeited cash gotten since the administration took off.nonsense

  2. It is easier for the government to jail this guy because he is no nobody and he never belongs to any cult sect. Saraki bribe his way back to Senate seat. Nigeria is a Country where we have two laws in place, one for poor and the other for the rich.

  3. If you cannot pay a taxi, then trek to where you are going. A n ÜBER driver, like every other taxi driver is struggling life trying to earn a living, so nobody should be making “acting big man” at his expense; what is not right is not right. This guy would not try such in SA….and expect to walk free…..or maybe he did hence his deportation.
    Mchweeeeew!
