      Judy, youself know the Esterners are notorious and are unchallenged champions of all manner of crimes in Nigeria and beyond. There are bad nuts in other tribes too but your people from the East are ahead of all other tribes combined in Nigeria when it comes to criminality and you know this fact for sure. The only reason your comments came in the defence of people of the East is that you are aware of the embarrasing and unenviable criminal status your people have assumed as a tribe.
