  1. What a waste of his life. He should have consulted any Nigeria politician on how to take bribe undetected and when caught, how to deny the allegation. May his soul rest in peace.

  2. Unfortunately, the conscience of the ones we have on African soil has been seared with hot iron. They will rather destroy lives to stay alive and remain in power even when they are physically or mentally incapable.
