I wonder how FG is fighting corruption. From bail till he's finally free. What's the essence of whistle blowing when the accused is liberated afterwards. Stringent judgement should have been passed as a lesson and warning to others embezzling money anyhow
Corrupt, greedy, selfish bastards.

EFCC struck a deal with this man, to declare less than the actual amount found in his possession, and make sure he is granted bail,for him to go and prepare well for his case
