Shameless!!! Another sad day for Nigeria....

The tummy tucking Nigerian governor of my earlier post who was arrested and detained in London on charges of money-laundering has apparently skipped bail and escaped back to Nigeria- allegedly disguised as a woman, the BBC confirms this evening.....

And as predicted, crowds have lined the streets of the impoverished state capital of Yenagoa in the oil rich Niger Delta to welcome him back. Meanwhile he has allegedly said that "God brought him home" and accused the British authorities of "neo colonialism". The cheek of him, having travelled under false pretences, and running away from justice, he dares to invoke God and neocolonialism........

Sadly because of a weird "immunity from prosecution" clause in the Nigerian constitution, there is little chance that he will be brought to justice. A fellow governor caught in similar circumstances last year fled back to Nigeria, also skipping bail and has continued to govern his state.....

How these men can live with themselves, I honestly do not know!

The Metropolitan Police should never have let him slip through......

Disguised as a lady and using forged documents. Predictive but not Impressive.

He might go scot free in Nigeria. If he can be able to use 1 million pounds as pocket money, dealing with his house shouldnt be a problem.
