News Review-N27bn pension thief arrested after public outcry

When I read this in the Punch Newspaper, I opened my mouth and whispered the sentence in surprise. Two years in prison or a N750 000 fine for a N27bn fraud. Puurrrlease! Spare me! This is when an American teenager says 'shut up' out of disbelief (like Georgina the queen bee in Mean girls 1 when she couldn’t believe that home-schooled Cady-Lindsay Lohan had never been to a real school). 

(I am not sure if it is N27bn or N32bn, different figures from different sources.)

Anyway, I wonder how the judgement was passed because sincerely I am confused here. Call it plea bargaining, Nigerians want justice! The question is: how does the sentence match the offence? The law is meant to aid justice, not abet corruption. That sentence only encourages corruption. If one could pay N750 000 for a N27bn crime, then crime is a profitable business.  You tell him it is two years in prison or a N750 000 fine, how do they even match for such a crime? The most ignorant person on earth would choose the latter; no one wants to spend a night in behind bars. Some are asking for Justice Mohammed Talba to be probed-sensible and expected. 

If the public outcry could make the EFCC re-arrest Mr John Yakubu Yusuf, the Deputy Director in the Police Pension Office; then Nigerians please‘cry’ more, if it will bring order to the country. Thank you EFCC for listening to us.
Lastly, I agree with the Executive Director of the Civil Society Legislative and Advocacy Centre, Mallam Awual Musa as he advised  the judiciary to begin to redeem its image.

    my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she
