  1. A kidnapper who got his wealth through stealing from others is requesting for a compensation of #1 billion for what he claims that was stolen from his house and he had the gult to mention the price he bought those things thru sophisticating people's wealth. What has our country Nigeria turn into? A lawless country where criminals could still bold for a right. What about the people Evans killed and collected millions of dollars from, what does he expect them to say at his arrogant demand? It is indeed a pity to hear all these shameful things from a country as Nigeria, this shows we are heading no where after more than 60yrs of independent.
