  19. Simply get rich or die trying. All this get rich quick ends disastrous and never ends well. Its written in the bible, God said money answereth all things but is the root of all evil. It simply means that money is a necessity and makes a better life but the love of money is the root of all evil. The love of money is what’s leading some youths into this evil and sinful crime. They have caused a lot of sufferings and sorrows to so many of their victims. No sin shall go unpunished. Nemesis will always find a way to catch them and is a promise. This is there own nemesis and have to face justice. Good job by the EFCC, keep up the work.

  24. May God help us in this nation, this is what our government turn the youth to, since we are lack of employment opportunities and every single person want to survive in life so I don’t blame the man the government should provide job for us they should not use all our money to send their childrens across the country

  25. One thing we should have in mind is that there’s no shortcut to success in life.. The earlier we know that,d better for us… I pray God helps us in this country

  26. Will i say is this Nigerian singer Victor AD dat caused all this mess in dis our country because since he came up with his song “if i no make money wetin i gain” the crime became worst

  27. He should be tried in court of law and if find culpable should be made to face the full wrath of the law

  28. Many youths nowadays don’t want to just hustle rightly. They are just using every means to scam/fraud people

  29. People are going into fraud on daily basis even though many have been arrested but A lot are still going there, something needs to be done

  30. High level fraud, with such huge amount of money. I know the guy must have apparently been thinking about his future after NYSC. but this isn’t the best chose

  31. Quick money, this is getting out of hand the rate in which young ones are going into this method of making money is too much let government do something about it quick.

  32. This is exactly what bad governance and economy breeds. No plans for the youth, why won’t they dabble into dubious deals.

  33. This is as a result of personality and engagement, when this type of person is noticed he should be rehabilitated and place in a place he will be useful

  34. Nigerian guys are after quick money, they don’t want to work before they start riding big cars and living in big houses. It’s God that caught this one. You will not go unpunished.

  35. Increase allawi, them no gree. .. Person thief, them dey vex.
    I don’t excuse what he was arrested for anyway. Fraud is wrong irregardless of the circumstances surrounding it.

  36. Really disheartening see in our youths engaging inthis type of fraudulent acts.they should be severely punished

  37. Simply get rich or die trying. All this get rich quick ends disastrous and never ends well. Its written in the bible, God said money answereth all things but is the root of all evil. It simply means that money is a necessity and makes a better life but the love of money is the root of all evil. The love of money is what’s leading some youths into this evil and sinful crime. They have caused a lot of sufferings and sorrows to so many of their victims, let this serve as a lesson to others.

  38. This is the result of sharp money, Nigerian youths are so inpatient as they want to acquire wealth fast. May God help us all
