    We will soon start calling for them to free this man! The Nigerian legal system is very useless! Here is a man who wanted to make refunds at some point!

      Metuh has paid the judge to continue adjournment of the case until Buhari leaves power. Jonathan was a calamity of a leader! There’s no word to qualify his lack of capacity to reason properly! I wonder what a president saw in his political friends that he should award N400 million of federal money to them.
