Well, this is no surprise to me to be sincere with the rate of crimes in Nigeria. Its now slowly becoming a slogan "Anyone who steals, is not a thief unless been caught". And that's what is showing forth now. A politician who is contesting have been caught in a fraudulent activity let just wait let him enter into power and see what we will face. Well the EFCC did the good job at least channeling their energy on the right places and persons.
