    Nigerian professionals in diaspora – Specifically Nigerian lawyers in the USA, the ball is in your court. Help your government prosecute this person. I am sure there is a statute in the USA laws that we can use to bring this person to justice either as an Alien or as a US Citizen.

    What else do they know how to do if not only looting. Acquiring choice properties they can not take to their future miserable grave. African mentality is actually sickening.
