#PanamaPapers: How Alamieyeseigha began looting Bayelsa 3 months after becoming governor

Former Governor Diepreye Alamieyeseigha
Former Governor Diepreye Alamieyeseigha

Almost immediately after he was sworn in as the first democratically-elected governor of Bayelsa State in May 1999, the late Diepreye Alamieyeseigha began his long journey of stealing in office by erecting solid offshore structures, including the now infamous company, Solomon & Peters Limited.

Documents exclusively obtained by German newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) with PREMIUM TIMES and other media organisations around the world, showed that the paperworks for the registration of Solomon & Peters were initiated in September 1999 in the United Kingdom by lawyers working for the UK branch of the Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca.

Solomon & Peters was eventually incorporated on October 1, 1999 in the British Virgin Island as an “International Business Company”.

As governor of Bayelsa State between May 1999 and December 2005 when he was impeached, Mr. Alamieyeseigha was found to have stashed away several loots, measured in millions of British Pounds and US dollars, in different parts of the world. Solomon & Peters was central in it all.

In 2012, more than £5 million recovered from the funds stolen by him was handed back to the Bayelsa State government by British authorities. The money, handed over to two government officials from Bayelsa State, who came to London for the transfer, was lodged in a Bayelsa State government account with the London branch of First Bank Plc.

The looting journey begins

On September 21, 1999, barely three months after Mr. Alamieyeseigha assumed office as governor, one Sue Bloom from the Mossack Fonseca office in London made a fax transmission to Rosemarie Flax of Mossack Fonseca office in British Virgin Island (BVI) requesting to know if the name Solomon & Peters Limited was available for registration in BVI.

Other Mossack Fonseca personnel involved in the registration was Amanda Coyle, Desiree Chalwell and Bryan Scatliffe.

Solomon & Peters was incorporated with authorised capital of US$50,000 divided into 50,000 shares. Unwilling to take chances by appointing proxies, who might one day undercut him, Mr. Alamieyeseigha appointed himself as both the First Director and Secretary of Solomon & Peters.

He then used the company for years to engage in a looting spree, stashing away funds belonging to his state and acquiring properties in several parts of the world.

His downfall begins

On September 15, 2005, six years after he started stealing public funds, Mr. Alamieyeseigha was arrested at the London Heathrow Airport on suspicion of money laundering.

Mossack Fonseca later resigned as administrator of Solomon & Peters after the governor was arrested. The Panamanian authorities had compelled the law firm to surrender documents about the corrupt politicians and his company.

UK authorities seized $1.5million cash stashed in his London home. They also seized $2.7 million in a bank account at the Royal Bank of Scotland and $15 million in London real estate.

The former governor had a personal account with Barclays Bank Plc opened on January 5, 2005 with balance standing at £203,753.34 as at February 15, 2005.

Mr. Alamieyeseigha also had an account with HSBC, London, but the account was closed in March 2003 with all the money transferred to Santolina Investment Corporation.

He was the sole director of Santolina Investment and sole signatory to the company’s account with National Westminister Bank in London. He had £1.9 million in a Royal Bank of Scotland account belonging to Santolina which he had requested to be transferred to an account in Cyprus.

Meanwhile his properties in UK included a house on Water Gardens in London purchased for £1.75 million in 2003; a house at Mapesbury Road, London purchased for £1.4 million in 2001; a flat in Jubilee Heights, Shoot Uphill, London, purchased for £241,000 in October 1999 weeks after Solomon & Peters was incorporated; and a property on Regent’s Park Road, London, purchased in July 2002 for the sum of £3 million.

In the United States, Alamieyeseigha had two properties, one on 504 Pleasant Drive, King Farm Estate, Maryland, and another on 15859 Aurora Crest Drive Whither, California. He had an account with Bank of America, which balance stood at $1.6 million as at August 2003.

Traced to him in South Africa was a property in V & A Waterfront, Cape Town, valued at $1 million; and Royal Albatross Properties registered in 2005 in Cape Town.

However, in his asset declaration form submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau in 1999, Mr. Alamieyeseigha claimed he had five buildings with a total value of N50 million, 25 plots of land with a total value of N2.5 million, a company called Pesal Nigeria Ltd with a capital of N100,000, four vehicles acquired between 1982 and 1998 with a total value of N10 million, an account with Diamond Bank Plc in Port Harcourt with a balance of N5 million and cash-in-hand of N100,000.

On April 25, 2003, Mr. Alamieyeseigha declared to the Code of Conduct Bureau, after he was elected for a second term in office, that he had assets including six buildings acquired between 1985 and 2002 with a total value of N70 million and annual income of N3.5 million; 27 plots of land acquired between 1985 and 2001 with a total value of N5 million; six cars acquired between 1982 and 2003 with a total value of N14.8 million and a boat acquired in 2002 for N2.5 million.

In September 2005, the former governor was arrested and tried in London for money laundering. He jumped bail and fled to Nigeria.

But on arrival in Nigeria, he was impeached by the Bayelsa House of Assembly, prosecuted and jailed.
After his jail term, he became a political godfather to then President Goodluck Jonathan who granted him presidential pardon, sparking local and international outrage against the regime.

Eulogies galore

Mr. Alamieyeseigha died on October 10, 2015. He was 63.

Despite looting his state from the beginning to the end of his tenure in office, there were endless eulogies at his funeral.

During his interment, Nigerian dignitaries spoke glowingly about him, with the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, renaming the Banquet Hall of the state’s Government House as Chief DSP Alamieyeseigha Memorial Hall.

He described the former governor as a man who lived and died well and whose ideals should be supported by all Bayelsans and Ijaw people.

“Let us continue to rally the Ijaws for positive development as he (Alamieyeseigha) came, saw and did his best. We all will miss his wise counsel, doggedness and belief in the Ijaw cause,” Mr. Seriake said.

Former President Jonathan also said, “Alamieyeseigha meant well for Bayelsans; stood very firmly for the Ijaw people and wanted to advance the South-South [cause]. He’s somebody we will collectively miss.”

    I have nothing personal against Bola Tinubu, nothing at all. But when we saw his own concept of operation, the Alpha Beta issue, we had to change. There is no government, since General Johnson, which has so raped Lagos State as this chap. From 2000, using Alpha Beta, he has been collecting a percentage of the treasury every 30 days. Imagine the kind of money he has taken from the treasury. That is just one source. What about LASTMA? When you are fined by LASTMA, the company that collects the money is owned by Bola Tinubu. Highway Mangers belongs to Bola Tinubu. Go to Ikoyi and the choice areas of Lagos State and see the amount of properties belonging to Tinubu. If General Johnson was that greedy, because he could have been, would there have been anything left for Tinubu to now appropriate? YET THERE IS NOTHING ON HIM—-IN THE FAKE DAN FULANI BUHARI WAR AGAINST CORRUPTION

  • The truth-Buhari na thief

    The largest landlord in Lagos has done as he has pleased, and the rest of the state just has to deal with it. For instance: Number 4, Oyinkan Abayomi (formerly Queens) Drive, Ikoyi: A 5-bedroom detached house on one acre of land which was originally the Lagos State Governor’s guest house since 1979, but which now belongs to Tinubu. The certificate of occupancy of the property valued at N450 million was signed and released to him by Fashola in 2007 shortly after he assumed office.

    Tinubu’s residence at 26 Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi was initially falsely presented as Oando Plc Guest House. Later, he purportedly bought it from Oando, and used public funds to rebuild and renovate it. The Lagos State Government bought the property and paid an undisclosed sum to him and thereafter gave the property back to him under the bogus Pension Bill he signed to law shortly before he left office in 2007. The property is worth over N600 million.

    The annex of the Lagos State Guest House in Asokoro, Abuja was bought by the State Government in 2006 for N450 million, purportedly to protect the main house from security breach. Shortly after Tinubu left office, the property was transferred to him under the pension plan he signed into law before leaving office.

    The 250-hectare land valued at about N35billion and strategically located at the Ajah junction on Lekki Road was initially meant for a General Hospital for the people of Eti-Osa Local Government but was stolen by Tinubu and handed over to Trojan Estate Ltd – a company owned by Deji and Wale Tinubu – to develop as Royal Garden Housing Estate at the expense of the taxpayers of Lagos.

    The 1,000 hectares of land valued at about N75billion located at Lakowe near Abijo at Ibeju-Lekki Local Government and given to Lekki Concession Company (LCC) which is partly- owned by Tinubu and Fashola and being developed as golf course and housing estate by Assets and Resource Management Ltd (ARM) as ADIVA project.

    Alamieyeseigha is dead. He cannot answer to any allegation against him. Why not concentrate on your present Vice-President as to how as a Lecturer earning Naira, he was able to save almost one million Dollars in a US Bank and bought a house in the United Kingdom? Can we for once address realistic issues and stop beating about the bush?

    • Ade Omowest

      Well thank God, the Vice-President Yemi Oshibanjo and President Muhammadu Buhari are alive. You can take up the responsibility to publicly send the evidences against these people to your PDP and/or PanamaPaper in collaboration with your co-mates (‘buhari cannot bury truth’, “The truth-Buhari na thief”) and other PDPig e-rats Wailers. At least Buhari and Oshibanjo have no immunity where PanamaPaper is being published.

      • concernednigerian

        Of course. I expect an Ade to jump to the defence of the Vice-President. That is the problem with Nigeria: your people are corrupt but mine are not. Please let all of us forget about this corruption issue because we’re not sincere.

            You’re indeed the megaphone to Osibanjo. Lai Mohammed would not have done a better job than you. You concealed the fact that this man was a Commissioner in Tinubu’s cabinet hence accessible to public funds. Mr Propagandist, when exactly did Osinbajo open his American Account and how was money lodged? The answer should not be beyond a Political Commissar like you. What is happening in Nigeria is that we absolve our own of corruption while describing others as being corrupt. If you arraign osibanjo of corruption people will besiege the courtroom to plead his innocence just as we did when Tinubu was arraigned. Now we’re being told that the decision to absolve Tinubu of wrongdoing was a mistake. If you arraign Ibori, his supporters will do the same. That is why Buhari should move on with the governance of Nigeria and forget about witch hunting. Nigeria earns nothing from cocoa and groundnut.

    Nigeria a country pulled apart by ethnic-based centrifugal forces.

    • objective

      I don’t think it has anything to do with ethnicity. I think it is more of cronyism. Amaechi is not an Hausa man, neither is he Yoruba. So, if Buhari and the South Western Press are protecting him as you’ve insinuated, then, it is way away from having anything to do with where Amaechi comes from. Likewise, Deziani and Okonjo Iwealla enjoyed influence and protection under Jonathan. Whether it had to do with where they came from, I don’t know; but what I do know is, if it is true that Amaechi is as culpable as being insinuated in some quarters, then one day another Pharaoh will come that doesn’t know Joseph.

      In the Interim however, let Deziani, Okonjo Iwealla and their co-travelers answer for their wrong doings if any.

    Reports say Chief Tony Anenih, a former Board of Trustees (BoT) chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is dead. The respected politician who was fondly called ‘Mr Fix it’, was said to have died in a private hospital in London at the age of 82. He reportedly collapsed on Sunday morning while taking breakfast at his Durham Broadway private London house. Anenih acted as the state chairman of the National Party of Nigeria (NPN) between 1981 and 1983, when he helped Dr Samuel Ogbemudia become elected as civilian governor of the old Bendel state. He became the national chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) from 1992 to 1993, when he assisted in the election Chief M K O Abiola as president.

    the late General Sani Abacha looting spree of Nigeria is currently

    fighting the United States authorities to keep about $140million he helped

    the late dictator stole and kept in offshore accounts.

    Peter Carr of the U.S Department of Justice, USDOJ, told

    Journalists in an email that Bagudu’s lack of cooperation on the

    crimes he committed against Nigeria and the United States is stalling the

    forfeiture of about $148million held in different portfolios in United

    Kingdom. Carr said “As you are probably aware, the Justice Department brought a

    civil forfeiture action against more than $600 million traced to

    corruption in Nigeria during the regime of Sani Abacha.

    “Abubakar Bagudu, who is not cooperating with our investigation, is named

    in the complaint, which also lays out the government’s position on his

    role. His relatives are contesting the forfeiture of over $100 million of

    the total the Justice Department is seeking to forfeit.”

    The U.S had traced over $600million laundered by the late Abacha. Out of

    the $600million, the U.S have agreed to repatriate $480million, with over

    $100million still in contention.

    Now this is a very serious and sober one. I would not say much as it is before EFCC.

    There is a serious petition, supported by a sworn affidavit, to the fact that Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the last governor of Rivers state, defrauded Rivers state to the tune of over N70billion.

    I read all the comments here and I almost laugh myself to death. Now let us dissect this stealing of Bayelsa money by Alams. He was first arrested by the British authority for money laundering. He must have forgotten that his immunity was only in effect in Nigeria. Then he jumped bail and run back to Nigeria only to be tried and given light sentence in the face of such a huge betrayal of people’s trust. I am at loss that some people will be justifying Alams crime by pointing fingers to perceived other corrupt people. Is that a reasonable justification to allow others to steal? Wasn’t it a shame that a governor’s crime was detected and arrested by a foreign government before we even become aware that such a crime was being committed at home? We need to do some soul searching and get off our ethnic and tribal myopia that can only lead us to nowhere but Armageddon.

    ********************************************************
    20 Notable Achievements of Muhammadu Bokohari
    ********************************************************

    I am not surprised that President Muhammadu Buhari has achieved so much since becoming president of Nigeria on May 29, 2015.
    Among his visible achievements are:
    1. Power has dropped from 5000 MWs in May 2015 to about 200 MWs in April 2016.
    2. Fuel price has moved from N87/litre in May 2015 to N200, N250, N400, N500 a litre. It just depends on where you find it to buy.
    3. No fuel at most filling stations to power our generators.
    4. Nigerians now lose their jobs in droves as companies close down due to the factors listed above.
    5. Insecurity has increased with kidnappings spreading to the Northern part of Nigeria.
    6. Boko Haram has been empowered through Fulani herdsmen who now go around unchallenged with assorted sophisticated weapons like AK 47.
    6. Terrorist Fulani herdsmen – the militia wing of the nomadic tribe – now kill Christians in the South and kidnapped their elders for ransom
    7. Islamist Terrorist Fulani Herdsmen kill as they wish, unchallenged as the security agents headed by fellow Fulanis at different strategic levels.
    8. The president has not deemed it fit to visit Agatu, a local government are in Benue State where about 500 Christian natives were killed by this same gang of Fulani Islamist terrorists
    9. Instead of sending the army to uproot the existence of Fulani Boko Haram herdsmen Buhari focuses on expansionist grazing reserves all over the South.
    10. Our naira become weaker by over 100%. It has jumped from N180 in May 2015 to N380/USD this month.
    11. There is hunger in the land. Nigerians now yearn for award winning President Jonathan to come back as his days were far better..
    12. The one sided anti-corruption war is majorly ineffective. No single person has been convicted. All APC members especially Hausa Fulani are insulated from prosecution.
    13. Impunity has been given preeminence by the government of the day and the rule of law now relegated to the background.
    14. People now park their cars overnight at filling stations Longest fuel queues in the history of our nation recorded.
    15. Budget for Presidential Clinic 3 times more than budget for a Federal hospitals put together. This is criminally criminal.

  • 车前草和花生

    Three months is too long for a Nigeria power holder to begin to steal. The average wait time to steal (AWTS) is three business days.

    • Otile

      Who knows how much Buhari has siphoned away yet? Don’t tell me that Buhari like his boss Abacha stole no money.

      • IZON Redeemer

        99.9 percent of the money abacha stole came from the oil industry–It was Buhari who loooted for abacha–In PTF buhari was given more money than the Federal Ministry of works and health–sadly all those who worked with Buhari in PTF died in a mysterious ways

  • BABUYANMA

    I am sure he is enjoying the looted treasures now.

    • Lt. Col. M Mariama(rtd)

      This assumes that they placed some of the loot in his coffin. This will definitely attract grave robber if that ever happened. I personally remember him for the creative way he changed his appearance to get out of British. The man was probably the country’s(Nigeria”) best known drag queen if you think about it. Flawless lipstick and mascara that will put even the womenfolk to shame.His hear gear was perfect and the wrapper was tied with perfection. Can’t beat that folks.

      • BABUYANMA

        And Jonathan proudly called him his HERO?

        • Lt. Col. M Mariama(rtd)

          Stealing is not corruption.
          Always remember that wise saying.
          A villain to some may be a hero to others.

          • BABUYANMA

            Stealing is the same as MURDER, especially public fund. Lives are lost, and destinies are destroyed because of public fund theft.

          • Lt. Col M

            Since I convinced you that stealing is not corruption I want you to make an effort to convince me that stealing is MURDER. Give me one direct link between the two.

          • BABUYANMA

            I can use any ministry, but choose Ministry of Works. Billions of dollars are budgeted to fix one dangerous road, bcos of its condition. The minister choose to STEAL the fund, which is common in Nigeria. At 8pm, a driver hit a bad hole on the highway, and the car busted out in flame. 5 of 8 medical students are dead, and the remaining 3 suffered 80% burn over their bodies, and could not finish medical school. If the minister has fixed the bad road, the accident could have been prevented. The minister just KILLED 5 people, and changed the destinies of 3

          • IZON Redeemer

            was the Minister of works an Ijaw man

          • Izedomi Ohirein

            I am very sorry for you & your type.
            When people die on a bad road, hospital due to lake of facilities ETC.
            Those who stole the money meant for road construction & hospitals killed them.
            I presume you hold a university degree like Jonathan?.

          • IZON Redeemer

            Mumu the roads u mentioned were once undert the eastern region of Nigeria—-what did u do for the SS then—-besides stealing their land-in pitakwa

          • Otile

            Tell that to Tinubu.

        • Arabakpura

          Ijaw has minus one in Jonathan; with him, anything goes!

          • Otile

            Just as Yoruba has one in Obasanjo; even-though Obasanjo’s new wife does not knows that her husband committed incest with his son’s wife.

          • Arabakpura

            OK, truth is bitter but if you think Jonathan counts for something, so be it!

        • Otile

          As you proudly call Umaru Dikko hero.

        • dave jacob

          Clearly, Jonathan has redefined who a hero is, as he did with what corruption is.

        • dave jacob

          And he will leave some for the Izon Redeemer. I laugh ke ke ke ke ke ke ke ke ke ………………..

        • world ofmyown

          Buhari called Abacha a Saint with no loot to his name. mmmm…..Madness?

    “……….the former governor as a man who lived and died well and whose ideals should be supported by all Bayelsans and Ijaw people.”

    na true …………………..

    “Governor general of Ijaw nation”. God help us from self distruction.

    • IZON Redeemer

      Hen Alams is the late Governor General of the Ijaw Nation–Go kill your rotten regional soul–even the Yorubas called the wife of Awo a thief–Zik was the first thief to be caught by the British and the Uncle of Sanusi was the first filthy Fulani Emir to be apprehended by the British while stealing in the Fulani North–If u can speak ill of the dead than what can u not do to the Ijaw Nation–after stealing their crude oil wells-? At least he passed his school cert-b4 enlisting into the airforce

      • Izedomi Ohirein

        I can see why you are backward. Unable to pay salaries despite your huge Federal allocation.
        Nigeria developed its Oil as we are developing rice, wheat & tomatoes production in the north.
        Ijaws had no national endowment at the time our Oil was developed. Go buy an Oil block, develop it and call it your own.

        • Otile

          Are you asking him to and buy an oil block from oil-less North. That’s impossible.

          • Izedomi Ohirein

            There is Oil in Chad & Niger Republic already. There is now Oil in Lagos. There could be Oil in Sokoto & Borno States.
            Edo, Ondo & Ogun have bitumen deposit, 5 times our Oil reserves, yet to be exploited..
            Wheat, Rice, Tomatoes production & Cattle ranching, if developed in the North could be more than our Oil industry. These are sustainable & will never run out like Oil. You will have to depend on the North for food.

        • IZON Redeemer

          Has rochas paid your Ibo civil servants in Imo state their 11 months wages————————-

          • Izedomi Ohirein

        • Burning Spear

          Go and redeem the life of the Ibos murdered by the Fulanis—–cowards die many times b4 their death–just being mouthy in Nigeria for nothing

    • dave jacob

      AMEN!!!

    • IZON Redeemer

      U mean the Biafran project which has led to the murder of Ibos all over the south east–?

      • Izedomi Ohirein

        Most Igbo were killed by Achuzia & hunger.

  • IZON Redeemer

    He Alams is the late Governor General of the Ijaw Nation–Go kill your rotten regional soul–even the Yorubas called the wife of Awo a thief–Zik was the first thief to be caught by the British and the Uncle of Sanusi was the first filthy Fulani Emir, to be apprehended by the British while stealing in the Fulani North–If u can speak ill of the dead than what can u not do to the Ijaw Nation–after stealing their crude oil wells in the Niger Delta-? At least he passed his school cert-b4 enlisting into the airforce

  • OmoLasgidi

    Surprised that a number of commentators are surprised with Jonathan & Co’s eulogies?
    Should we surprised that there is “honour and respect” amongst these looters?
    The Nigerian people should keep praying for their early demise so they never have time to enjoy their loot, and hold parallel and “Shaming Burials” for the thieves! They should also go down into their graves in full disgrace!

  • This Fulani tiv nko?

    Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State who was the anchor man of

    the late General Sani Abacha looting spree of Nigeria is currently

    fighting the United States authorities to keep about $140million he helped

    the late dictator stole and kept in offshore accounts.

    Peter Carr of the U.S Department of Justice, USDOJ, told

    Journalists in an email that Bagudu’s lack of cooperation on the

    crimes he committed against Nigeria and the United States is stalling the

    forfeiture of about $148million held in different portfolios in United

    Kingdom. Carr said “As you are probably aware, the Justice Department brought a

    civil forfeiture action against more than $600 million traced to

    corruption in Nigeria during the regime of Sani Abacha.

  • Efcc Amaechi nko when?

    The immediate past Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi stole $757 million, reliable sources at the Government House told our reporter in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, south-south Nigeria.

    It would be recalled prior to the general elections in Nigeria, Mr. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi had issues and a running battle with the former Nigerian First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, that snowballed into a full-blown quarrel. This precipitated a political crisis in the state that led to his defection from the then ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party, (PDP).

    Rotimi Amaechi, our source revealed, had no option but to align himself with those opposed to Dr. Jonathan presidency. His fear was that should Jonathan, by chance, be re-elected as president of Nigeria he would suffer a great persecution which, our sources say, is unlike the courteous and gentlemanly nature of the former Nigerian leader to seek revenge or respond to every injustice done to him.

    Findings from our investigative reports revealed that Rotimi dug deep into Rivers State coffers and doled out piecemeal a whopping $757 million part of which was used to fund Buhari’s campaign and every hue and cry that has been raised so far to have Rotimi Amaechi investigated in spite of the glaring evidence against him tendered by the Rivers State Government has fallen on deaf ears.

  • IZON Redeemer

    “The controversy, concerning the CIA sponsored Panama Papers, in large part, derives from a basic and arguably willful misunderstanding of what firms like Mossack Fonseca do – and don’t do – for their clients. In basic terms, these firms help people create new businesses and trusts. …unlike banks, these law firms don’t take possession of their clients’ money. The entire transaction has nothing to dop with money transfers-So the notion that they are involved in “money laundering” is laughable.

    “Once incorporation papers are filed, the law firms don’t direct in any way the operation of the businesses.”

    Besides, the real target isn’t the Panamanian law firm. Activists on the left, working in concert with international bureaucracies and uncompetitive governments, through the CIA want to create a global tax cartel (sort of an “OPEC for politicians“) in hopes of enabling certainm Western Governments introduce higher tax burdens on their citizens. And to find ways–blackmailing african leaders for their selfish end.

  • Sparzo

    I pity these people and their governor.

    • IZON Redeemer

      The Izon Nation does not need your Demonic regional self pity-after stealing them blind—behind which u hid to impoverish the Ijaws in the creeks of the Niger delta–let them go–enough of these fake self pity rubbish—-

    • dave jacob

      Pity? No! Their brains need cleansing!!!

      • IZON Redeemer

        U mean the people that sat down over a bottle of of their beloved palm wine while the Fulanis were raping their women and killing their men–as early as 6 am in the morning?

  • time for buhari to go is now

    he filtering of this Mossack Fonseca information by the corporate media follows a direct western governmental agenda. There is no mention at all of use of Mossack Fonseca by massive western corporations or western billionaires – the main customers. And the Guardian is quick to reassure that “much of the leaked material will remain private.”

    What do you expect? The leak is being managed by the grandly but laughably named “International Consortium of Investigative Journalists”, which is funded and organised entirely by the USA’s Center for Public Integrity. Their funders include

    Ford Foundation

    Carnegie Endowment

    Rockefeller Family Fund

    W K Kellogg Foundation

    Open Society Foundation (Soros)

    among many others. Do not expect a genuine expose of western capitalism. The dirty secrets of western corporations will remain unpublished.

      CATFISH , P0ULTRY, PIGGERY, SNAIL FARMING GUIDE !!!
      =====================================
      Easy investment You can Start With very little Capital

      The high demand for chicken meat and eggs has really proven that Poultry farming in Nigeria is indeed a very lucrative business.

      A visit to any of the major markets will reveal to you that frozen chicken is still been smuggled by some traders into Nigeria from neighboring countries like the republic of Benin.

      The reason why this trend is prevalent is because most of the poultry farms in Nigeria operates on a small scale and can’t meet up with the increasing daily demand for chicken meat and eggs.

      For other farming like piggery, catfish,snail and the rest send an email
