  1. Nigeria!!! I don’t think there will be justice in Nigeria, how on Earth would anybody broke into where some financial vital information is being stored without apprehended. Presidency, judges, lawmakers and Eve securities all of them are corrupted. What do we call this.

  2. Thats Nigeria for u. The panel ought to know that the room housing the document to prosecute Magu is vital in their investigation, therefore the room ought to be guarded seriouly. Whatever maybe the case Magu is indicted and must be prosecuted. Note, he is not alone in this financial crime and as such his cohorts will do anything within their reach to scuttle the panels job in other not to get them roped in

  3. A typical Nigerian act whenever someone is prosecuted
    Every evidences are destroyed but God will vindicate us
