    Don’t praise Magu. All Nigeria policemen are thieves. Tell you brother Buhari to go after Northerners because they are the biggest thieves we have in Nigeria. Buhari is doing one side work. Tell to arrest IBB, OBJ, Atiku, Ameachi, Fashola, Tinubu, T.Y Danjuma, Emir of Kano Sanusi Lamido Sanusi etc.

      You are an undignified and frustrated element for you to insult the northern leadership. Your kinsman was given only six years ,and look at the collateral damages he inflicted on the entire nation


    Northerners ruled Nigeria for 40 years and introduce corruption to all sectors. Buhari started stealing in NNPC


    Corruption will never stop in Nigeria. The only option is to divide Nigeria and corruption will stop. Northerners kill every sector of this country. They occupy most of the important positions in Nigeria. Northern elder are the biggest thieves. After stealing , the tell you Allah gave it to them.
