    As usual, they will go round in circles, confuse the public, then wait for the chronic Nigerian amnesia to set in and possibly collect bribes then sweep the matter under the rug . This is a very straight case which can be sorted out in a couple of days and an indictment report published but that cannot happen in a zoo.

      It is a very simple case. All they need is tell Buhari to call Emir of Kano who will impress on his subject to mess up the probe and that will be it.
      Same way, Osinbajo had to intervene in Sanusi’s N5 billion theft of Kano Emirate money and the case died. The next moment, same Sanusi began to pose as a clean man with the interest of Nigeria at heart, having stolen so much from the CBN whilst he was the governor

      • Janjaweed

        He even gave multi-million dollar contract to his yoruba girlfriend who retired as assistant director from the same CBN…And employed a son of his former girlfriend (from the 1980s) who hails from Kwara State…

    There you are. This is how Buhari and APC are fighting “kworopton”

    We have had Attorney General from Southern Nigeria who were never enmeshed in all kind of scandal. Unfortunately, everyone of them from the North have demonstrated gross disloyalty and lack of patriotism to the country they serve.
