    Sai Imam Buhari. Imam, you have grabbed power and a spate of sudden deaths is trailing. Many of your minions are going to loose their lives before your time is up. Gasiya ne.

    • Rommel

      Maybe you will be next,wouldn’t it be wonderful?

      • Otile

        Did you say you will be next, and that would be wonderful? May it happen to you according to your wish.

    • tundemash

      Hopefully the Buhariphobia killing these rogues will be extended to their e-rats like you too.

        • Otile

          Amen to your early and sudden death too.

      • Otile

        Abubakar tundemash, what are you talking about? I thought you were my good friend, why are you wishing death on your friend? With a friend like you who needs more enemies?

        • tundemash

          Mor0n …. do you know how many Nigerians died because your looting master looted the Defence money ?
          Do you know how many Nigerians died because your looting masters refused to equip hospitals but will choose to go to German when they have cold ?
          As these rogues are dying like flies, so shall their e-rats like you die shamefully and your carcass eating by dogs. Oloshi a le te enu je !

          • Otile

            Since I offered you friendship but you betrayed me and treacherously wish me death. May your wish come back to you tenfold. May you die a miserable death. May nobody care to help you when you are in need. Bastard son of an incestuous man. Odale.

          • tundemash

            Thanks for admitting you are one of the e-rats stealing the yams through rogues like Dokpesi , Dasuki, GEJ and others.
            May the hottest part of hell be reserved for your and your looting masters.

          • Otile

            You are a very dishonest bastard. How did Dekposi and Dasuki creep int this conversation?

          • tundemash

            Oloshi, i guess it hurts u when the stealing of your looting masters is brought to the fore. This story is about the disease, buhariphobia, ravaging your looting masters one after the other. Are Dasuki and Dokpesi excluded Mr. D@ft ?

    • emmanuel

      Wise one, a Fulani may be on the way for replacement!

  • Bryan

    They should investigate those he has had dealings with, that might be scared a probe might expose them.

    • K-KAY

      You just captured my opinion.

  • trump banning Muslims in US

    the northerners, plan to replace him, with a northerner, so they kill him off…


      IBOLA Theory?

    The Minister of transport promised to probe him on a N13B allocation to the academy. Died the Alam’s way but someone, maybe TB Joshua, should wake up the man because we want to know what he did with our money

    • Ebaah Odibo

      The Minister of Transport Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi will probe Okpo in heaven or in hell. I believe if Okpo has gone to hell, then Amaechi will go there too. If Okpo went to heaven (I doubt that very much), then the Minister will go there too. Both Amaechi and Okpo are guilty of the same offense; juggling with public funds, and escaping probe.

    May he rest in peace.
