"Other government officials involved won’t matter because this will not be their first but you see this D’banj alleged involvement, it is highly disappointing. Corruption permeates all aspects of our lives in this country."

"D'banj arrested over Fraud Allegation in connivance with Govt officials. The names of those Govt Officials involved should be mentioned too. No one is above the law. The rod of the law should hit everyone involved on the head, irrespective of status or post in the society."
