"12 million US dollars and he never thought of going back to his country? You can’t hide in South Africa forever,." Said @Gobetse_M.

'' I watched a few documentaries about Nigerians across world. Nigeria can be the new world super power if they can use their survival skills to good use. They're always ahead of law enforcement agencies everywhere they go." Said @Khumo
