    stole or took part of their money ?

    The bigger thief, Lamido, will never accept the money stolen as his own, nor will he reveal the actual amount stolen. The police should just release the poor aides and negotiate with them to receive their share, period.

    That’s not theft.It’s called redistribution of money.

      Redistribution? wonderful.

    100 million naira stolen by aides. These are part of the monies stolen by Sule Lamido himself. Stolen money kept at home away from the prying eyes of security officials. What on earth is anybody doing at home with 100 million naira rather than the banks? If this country were to be a serious place, this is enough for EFFC to start an investigation.
