Robbers steal N2m from Anambra ministry

 By Nwanosike Onu07/09/2012 00:00:00

 
Three robbers on Wednesday stole N2 million from the premises of the Anambra State Ministry of Lands.
 
The incident occurred about 12 noon.
 
The Nation gathered that the suspects trailed two people from a new generation bank in Awka, where the money was withdrawn, to the ministry.
 
A source said: “Immediately they arrived in the ministry, the hoodlums stopped them. They quietly collected the polythene bag containing the money at gun point and left the premises.”
 
It was learnt that the money was withdrawn by a director in the ministry, but no one could tell what the money was meant for.
 
A source said the Commissioner for Lands, Mr. Okoli Akirika, was not aware of the withdrawal and was embarrassed when he learnt about the incident.
 
The source said: “Only the said director can explain why the money was withdrawn. You know a lot of deals go on in the ministry without the knowledge of the commissioner. May be it was one of such deals that involved a few persons.”
 
When The Nation visited the ministry yesterday about 11.45am, its two gates were locked. Visitors were not allowed in by security men, who said they were acting on an order from the ministry.

It looks like almost everyone is a thief in Nigeria. Looting is the number one industry, followed by kidnapping/murder and extortion. They toy with millions and hundreds. There is a difference between “Steal and Loot” a huge difference.

I meant to say “They toy with millions and not hundreds.”
