This people on Red called EFCC are just stylishly stealing from the youths. All the Cars, Lands, Houses and Money they took from these guys Nigerians should pls ask them abt it if they can provide an account for it. When the youths start taking Laws into their hands now some oloriburuku will start saying violence is not the Solution. This one happen for Enugu independence layout this morning o??…… You take all what they have including Cars, Money and houses then place them on bail pay. After they left pls how do you want them to Continue. And you expect them not to go back into what you arrested them for. A parent who doesn’t want his/her child to watch TV at the Neighbor’s house should atleast buy one in the sitting room??♂️ Eni jere Tómòmò.
