    Why grant him bail? What for? I think there shouldn’t be a bail option?

      @ Fifelomo, giving him that kind of bond is like telling him he cannot step outside the world for a long time. He cannot fulfill that bond. This is a game played by Government Counsels. It is like telling the outside the world that we America are so fair in delivery justice. We gave this man a chance to bail himself out even-though he is a terrorist but one thing is certain, nobody in the United States can risk bailing out a terrorist out with $5 millions equivalent. If any body shows up to meet that condition, FBI will go after that individual or bail bond company. This guy will spend better part of his youthful years in US penitentiary.

    THAT’S ABOUT 1.2 billion naira. Who can meet that bail condition? Or should we assume that the bail is meant to lure his sponsors out in the open?

    Nigerians never learned. Why are you all hyped over this silly thing and you dont even in the US?. AMericans themselves dont even take this nonsense serious anymore.

    Election is coming, UN meetings was about to take place so they needed to spice things up cus it is dull moments for months. They want to test trump and clinton capacity and shake up pubic opinion. You will be surprised if truth is to ever come out that the dude may be released behind closed doors, and given a nice luxury apartment to live in a downside while you up on the internet screaming about fictitious incident.

    You better wake your $ss and smell coffee. This is NCIS Los Angeles
