  1. Efcc should learn from developed countries on how to get good intelligence and info on wanted or suspected criminals.They should promise handsome financial reward for info that leads to her arrest,am sure that would make people provide meaningful information

  2. This type of declaration should not be limited home(Nigeria) alone it should also sent to international communities so that where ever such a person goes or hides,he or she will easily be brought back by Interpol.Enough of these stealing habit is okay in the country and must be stopped by using someone as an example to others.They have eaten their children food from the nation because they were opportune to be there.They have all failed the test and have no dignity and integrity in the country anymore.Clemo
