He said:

“Your daughter is 20, she no dey work, she carry phone of N1.5 million, you’re praising the Lord that your daughter bought a phone. Then she dashes you N100k, N200k, and you didn’t ask questions. You won’t live long. That is what is killing a lot of parents. Their son who is not working comes with some kind of money and some kind of car and you don’t ask questions.”
