Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Benin Zonal Office on Thursday July 16, 2020 arrested a 22-year old Computer Science Undergraduate of the University of Port Harcourt, Kenneth Gift, his girl friend, Dandy Spice and mother, Dorah Aninah for suspected internet fraud in Agbor, Delta State.
Their arrest was sequel to a petition from the US Federal Bureau of investigation, FBI, and intelligence by operatives of the Commission.

The suspects have made useful statements and will be charged to court as soon investigations are complete.
How this particular story keeps shading skin like a snake everytime I come cross it, is even more astonishing than the act of bribery the Chinese are being paraded for. This money was initially said to be a N100 million offered as a bribe to a particular set of Northern State politicians who were meant to over look the fact that the Chinese were illegally mining their mineral resources.
A whole lot of Asian especially Chinese folks will arrive Nigeria, pick a location based on their study of the minerals underneath and live in the land. They start illegally mining the natural resources there and sending the proceed (Either the minerals or the money) back to their Country, employee able bodies Nigerians who will equally help them with maps and locations, and will be made to abide by the “No Tell” rule.
But then will you blame the Nigerians? Let’s switch the roles so you see what I mean. The Nigerian leaders who are suppose to have the interest of the people at heart will equally mine that same land and loot the funds from it. Mostly paying alot less than the Chinese would, but the proceeds go into one person’s family account. The money will never get to the hungry hands of the masses legitimately, or be used for a project to benefit everyone.
And then on the other hand, the Asians especially Chinese will illegally mine that same land, though they won’t be giving the masses that money, they Atleast give jobs to the jobless, enabling them cater for themselves and their families.
So, if you are to put yourself in the shoes of these Nigerians, wouldn’t you rather keep your mouth shut knowing you are working for illegal miners, since you won’t benefit from exposing them.
You get paid and employed by these illegal miners, endure the inhumane treatment from these Chinese/Asians or basically anyone whose skin is lighter than that of the typical blacks (Which is more often than not), be guaranteed an income by a criminal in your country?
This is considered a better option just because the Black leaders of your own skin colour and Country, you at one point in time have trusted and voted in, have been as unreliable, incredibly deceptive,corrupt and looting master minds as their predecessors, and just as corrupt and self centered as their successors will be.
As for this N 50 million mentioned, I bet nobody in this Country will be able to account for it by December 2020. How typical…
