  1. If some of us can b as wicked as this, why saying that Nigeria is corrupt & can not change when we are supposed to b d change we expect to see.

  2. If a poor man steals in Nigeria, the rope of the law ties his neck beyond breathing. But if the rich, elites and politicians steal millions and billions from the government’s coffers, they become celebrities. How many of the public’s monies thieves will Insp. Modupe and her colleages arrest? We all are equal before the law.

  3. Honestly,d whole story sounds funny.Actually,following d gist d boy in-question z a stupid person but then,d value of d goat can never be #65000 at all.Going by simple law n human concience dz z over invoicing dat will attract a disciplinery action.Now somebody z ducked 4 stealling a goat,what has been done 2 d other who had stollen billions 4rom d treasury.Anyway,dz z a country where constitutions r meant only 4 d lower cadre n not 4 d rich.My advice z dat d poor n d less priviledge in our society should know dat d best option z 2 upright n God fearing hving known where d live in.I say big woe unto judges n highly placed personalities in our society.

  4. ABEG MAKE UNA LET THE MAN GO FLEX THE GOAT. NA WETING 9JA PUT MAN. I BEG MAKE THE JUDGE GO PICK BEANS ON TOP OF TRANSFORMER. THE OWNER OF THE GOAT NA THIEF. HOW MUCH FOR COW IF THAT SICK GOAT BE 65,000

  5. How can ά price of goat reach N65,000? What about people who steal from the government treasures,did court ever detained any of them? Let’Ş look at this case very well.

  6. It’s better they let the man go, cause those who want to judge should check them self first are you perfect. Stupid government when there is no work,what did they expect.
