    Is NDLEA now assigned duties to seize travellers’ monies ? This is misplaced effizzy! What will they charge the guys with and how will they prove wrong doing when we are told it is not for the suspect to prove his innocence but rather for the prosecutor to prove the guilt of those they accuse ? This is arrest on suspicion, not based on facts !
    The guys should be let go a beg . Mchweeeeeeew !!!

    its quite a pity that some of our NDLEA OFFICIALS dont know what exacltly their work is, they have forgot to realize that the presence of power does not mean that on should be guided by it so blinded.There is no concrete evident to proof what they are saying.This is a case of envy and hatred. please give them their money back.

    You’re back home taking bribe from people and this guys have toiled abroad to make ends meet and getting to their fathers land,these so called officers that doesn’t know their functions are intimidating them for no just cause. you are looking for a means to steal their money.

    Be guided
