ON THE TRENDING FBI SCAMMERS LIST.
It is funny watching people who had openly defended pension thief Abdulrasheed Maina, Grass cutter scammer Babashir Lawal, NNPC dollar thief Andrew Yakubu, NHIS thief Usman Yusuf and bullion vans lord, Bola Tinubu, dance owambe and run all over the social media with shameless ecstasy over the 80 internet scammers arrested by the FBI because of their ethnicity.
What the FBI revealed to have been stolen by those 80 internet scammers may not be up-to a drop of what those thieves listed above from the north and west have stolen from the Nigerian treasury and shipped abroad, yet they are walking free and some people worship and celebrate them. In their views, they are not thieves, they are nationalists working for their people and betterment of Nigeria.
What these people mocking the ethnicity of the 80 internet scammers are doing, is a case of “my thief is better than yours” or “my thief is smarter than yours”. Like I’ve always said, crime have no face or ethnicity. When highlighting the crimes of a person to make mockery of their ethnicity, know it that while you point out the uncleanness of the anus of a person, yours is at the same time exposing itself to others.
There has been numerous occasions that persons from other ethnicity had brought shameful embarrassment to this country in way of terrorism, drug smuggling, internet fraud and so forth, yet their ethnicity were not highlighted for ridicule. They were merely described as Nigerians. And on several occasions, the Nigerian government, rather than feel repulsed by the wayward activities of this persons, directly intervened for their release simply because of their ethnicity.
We have had cases of Ibrahim Uwais, the son of popular Justice Uwais who left his comfort in Nigeria with his family to Syria to join Isis to fight for their illusory caliphate. We had Umar Abdulmutallab, the son of Farouk Abdulmutallab, a former chairman of First Bank who attempted to bomb a US airliner for Al-Qaeda in January 2009. We had the Woolwich meat cleaver attackers who butchered a British soldier in loyalty to Isis. They are from the South West Nigeria. We had the Badoo boys in Lagos who specialize in harvesting human blood to enhance their yahoo yahoo business. And then the ladies pant thieves for same purpose.
In 2016, 3 Nigerians from kwara state were openly beheaded in Saudi Arabia for drug trafficking. The open beheading of Nigerians in Saudi Arabia who went for pilgrimage but rather resort to drug smuggling started as far back as 2009. There is a long list of them. Of recent we had a celebrated case of Zainab Aliyu who was caught with large quantity of cocaine in her luggage in the kingdom. The Nigerian authorities quickly intervened to get her released because of her background before she could be killed.
We have the second and fourth world’s most deadliest terrorist groups coming from the north of Nigeria. All these are enough embarrassment to Nigeria than the 80 internet scammers caught by the FBI. Yet the people involved do all they could to hide their ethnicity, but find fun in making mockery of those with even a lesser crime of internet fraud.
When the issue of Evans surfaced, it trended all over the country and his ethnicity was made an issue as breeder of kidnappers . Little did we know that someone more dangerous and sophisticated and even richer than Evans exists somewhere in the north in the person of Alhaji Wadume, operating with full support of the security agencies, and that his arms supplier is from the southwest in the person of Ojomo Gbenga Adebowale. Does any sensitive person wonder why the case of Alhaji Wadume did not trend as loud as that of Evans?
Like I have always said, Nigeria is like a jungle where all the species of animals cohabit but have no single love and affection for each other. It’s been always a survival of the fittest struggle. No ethnic group love each other in Nigeria, it is so glaring. No ethnicity is a saint or free of crime and dirty sides. Crime is crime, no matter who perpetrates it.
The people who often find fun in maligning other ethnic groups have refused to let those who wish to leave to do so. Let us help ourselves and our future generations by breaking up this sham of a country. I am yet to see another country so ethnically divided and steeped in hatred and hypocrisy of one another than this thing called Nigeria.
Let us help ourselves by breaking up than be pretending and lying to ourselves

If he/she ain’t in my political party? That’s a thief, if we don’t belong to the same ideology or faith? That’s a thief, if we don’t belong to the same “colour code” or clan? That’s a BIG thief in fact we ready to take law in to we hands and enforce justice at any cost. Nigeria problem(s) is just terribly overwhelming, some times I just wish and pray for case like “purge the movie”, Sodom and Gomorrah or the days of Noah to come on us real hard!!!
In other atmosphere, today is better than yesterday, tomorrow will most definitely better than today… but in the case of “my dearest, greatest (hell like) country”, yesterday is better than today, the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s… are better than present days 20’s, are we not MAD or MENTALLY, PSYCHOLOGICALLY NOT BALANCE? Without any tiny apology. For instance, how much is a dollar to naira then? How much is fuel price per litre then? So, how much is it presently? What happened…? Where did we go astray? Who bewitched us all not to be able to think right? Or are we truly the monkey the western world called us?
Crime is crime, no matter who perpetrates it, enough of this ethnicity that can’t take us anywhere rather than sinking us deeply in “sh.thole”, Evans the Eastern kidnapper trended but Alhaji Wadume the Northern kidnapper and Ojomo Gbenga Adebowale from Western part of Nigeria his armed supplier couldn’t see much of daylight.
(Let us help ourselves by breaking up than be pretending and lying to ourselves.) don’t really believe and want this for Nigeria, but things ain’t working and it’s only a fool that will keep doing same thing in a repeated pattern and still be expecting different results.
Anyway, #GodBlessNiG. I’ve said mine, ain’t you gonna do your little part?
