You never know what desperate politicians could do to achieve their goals when it comes to elections in Nigeria. We have heard and read in times past the evil activities of desperate politicians and some are deeply involved in the occult just to get political power. A case in an eastern state readily comes to mind when a political son refused to do the dictates of the political godfather and low and behold everything was blown open and the nation was thrown into shock as revelations after revelations poured out of just how evil some of our politicians have become.

corrupting it and replacing them with their own data.
“Based on this information, the service placed the building under

taken away for further investigation,” Ms. Ogar said.
