    The yoruba e-rats who believe in mob mentality will condemn tompolo without seeking to know why tompolo is hiding. Tompolo doesn’t believe in the nigeria justice where dictator buhari determines who gets bail and who doesn’t. Again majority of Nigerians are seeing anti corruption war as selective and witch hunt. Until dictator buhari arrest known apc thieves like amaechi and co, majority of Nigerians won’t support him.

    Seizing his properties will provoke the militants into sabotaging the oil facilities and thereby crippling our economy. Someone should advise dictator buhari that might doesn’t solve problems in all cases but wisdom does. If tsetse fly is perching on your scrotum, you don’t use hammer to kill it or else you would end up killing yourself…

    This show an utterly useless govt bent on decimating d few men of conscience we have in d society. We have nearly a comatose economy,1$=#400,boko haram killing and maiming unabated, fulani herdmen causing wanton havoc everywea yet ur problem is a man dat did a legitimate biz with govt having passed thru all due process. You must get rid of himby any means using corrupt judges with no conscience. Unnecessarily stoking and provoking d millions of Tompolos in d Niger delta will not benefit anyone.
