The news of the seizure of wrist watches and jewels worth over £2 million (N920 million at black market rate) from former minister of petroleum resources, Diezani Alison Madueke and wife of the man behind Atlantic Drilling Concepts Nigeria LTD, Jide Omokore has continued to upset Nigerians who are alarmed at what thieves in government and the corridors of power do with their loot.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission announced that the items, recovered during the raid of their houses, would soon be displayed to the press.
Compatriots are full of disdain for this level of greed…

Nigerians are patient people, how can Diezani and Omokore allegedly return N800 million worth of watches, and folks are not even perturbed?
