On further investigation, we also arrested some of his accomplices who include Musbau Musa also known as Shagon Dankikiya, Yunusa Ibrahim, Aliyu Sani, Luba Salihu and Fatima Shehu"
"The response of the regime to corruption is to imprison those exposing corruption. The impunity in corruption is extended to the punishment of those who fight corruption.  Nigerians live in want, hunger and penury. Death on the streets of Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Kano and Bauchi States) are no longer lessons for discussions. They are a daily occurrence."
